The Chicago Bulls have been interesting to watch during the 2021 NBA Summer League. Not, you know, good, but still interesting to watch. Despite their overall poor play (it’s Summer League, chill), Patrick Williams has been a bright spot who fans are watching closely. Unfortunately, it appears as though Williams will not be taking the floor tonight when the Bulls take on the Memphis Grizzlies. Namely, the reason why seems to be that he is in a different state.
For the Summer League season, Williams was the Bulls’ main ball handler and go-to scorer. He had mixed results serving as a primary playmaker, but he produced one of the best Summer League performances of 2021 with 30 points against the San Antonio Spurs, leading the Bulls back from a 22-point deficit.
In total, if Williams is done playing for this Summer League, his total numbers look like this: 21 PPG, 9.7 RPG, and 2.7 APG on 37.9% shooting from the field and 43.8% shooting from deep. While not the total domination one would hope for a former fourth-overall pick, the three-point shooting on 5.3 attempts per game will be welcome while sharing the court with Zach LaVine, Lonzo Ball, and DeMar DeRozan this season.
