After a colossal finish to the UA’s 2010-11 season, one shot shy of the Final Four in which Williams became the Pac-12 Player of the Year, he has struggled in the NBA. He has started just 112 of a possible 492 games. His career average is 8.9 points and 21 minutes per game. He played just 38 minutes for Cleveland in the NBA playoffs this year.
