Mark Williams, Michael Jordan’s top rookie

With their pick n°15, the Hornets have decided to bank on Mark Williams (20 ans, 2,13 m). « Even if it’s a Dukie », dixit Michael Jordan. The owner of the Hornets and him quickly spoke on the phone (see video below) after the draft:

“Yes I spoke to him yesterday. It’s really cool to be able to talk to Michael Jordan. He advised me a bit, told me he was happy to have me and to prepare me to work. »Mark Williams

The pivot was officially presented in Charlotte yesterday:

“I’m glad they gave me my chance, and they won’t regret it.

[…] I think catching alley-oops and defending are the two things I can bring right away. It’s something that I was able to do at a high level already and that I will continue to do. I have worked a lot more on my shoot since the end of the season and I will continue like this because in the end the goal is to be the best player possible. »Mark Williams

Williams, 2 NCAA seasons on the clock and a defender of the year title in ACC 2022, comes out of a year with 11.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.8 blocks per game (39 games) with the Blue Devils.

“Currently I would say I’m similar to a guy like Robert Williams, in terms of lobs, protecting the circle, going back and forth from one side of the court to the other. »Mark Williams
