1. Robert Williams
If you’ve been following Dairyland Express, then you know I absolutely love Robert Williams. He is everything the Bucks need from a center and could become the answer to a number of the question marks they have remaining.
Even though Milwaukee has three rotation-caliber centers in Thon Maker, John Henson and Tyler Zeller, each guy could just as easily play themselves out of the rotation altogether. None of them are very good rebounders which is why Milwaukee ranks near the bottom of the league in that category. They also struggle to put the ball in the hoop consistently, allowing their man to patrol the lane and deter Milwaukee’s players from getting to the rim.
Although Williams isn’t a threat to shoot the ball, he can rim-roll like nobody’s business. He’s in the same mold as Clint Capela, allowing the ball-handler to throw lobs over the top of the defense.
He’s also a stud defensively even though he’s only listed at 6-foot-9. He’s a true shot blocker and can control the paint. His rebounding his also a plus and would solve a lot of the Bucks woes.
Unfortunately, with the Wizards sitting at No. 15, that appears to be his floor. Washington needs a big man to replace the aging Marcin Gortat, but if somehow slips past them, Milwaukee would be wise to jump all over Williams.
