So i just saw some Cavs highlight on Twitter back when Derrick Williams played a couple of games with the Cavs so i decided to check where he was playing at the moment and to my surprise, he's playing for the Bayern Munich Basketball Team in the BBL and Euroleague!
Here's a very short recap of Derrick Williams 1st year and now:
He was drafted no.2 overall in the 2011 Draft, right after Kyrie Irving and before Enes Kanter. Some players who ended up being better picked after him were, Tristan Thompson, Jonas Valanciunas, Kemba Walker, Klay Thompson, Kawhi Leonard, Jimmy Butler, etc.
He got drafted by the Timberwolves where he only played 2 seasons and a half where he averaged: 10ppg, 5rpg on 42% from FG and 30% from 3PT.
He never panned out as a 6'7" ish undersized PF without a consistent Jumpshot and his career Averages in the NBA are: 9ppg, 4rpg on 43% from FG and 30% from 3PT! His FT percentage is 71%.
So far right now, he's played 3 games with Bayern Munich and is averaging: 11ppg, 2rpg, 1bpg on 48% from FG and 44% from 3PT on 3.0 (3PA).

During basketball season we have to fight hard for our family time... otherwise it will be stolen away just like that. This weekend we were able to have a cuddly, snuggly, lazy evening in bed complete with hot chocolate and a board game and it was amazing. 🙌🏼 Hanging onto those sweet moments helps us get through another busy week. This life we live may be crazy sometimes, but I wouldn’t have it any other way ❤️ .
