Chicago Bulls’ forward Patrick Williams has been named to the NBA All-Summer League second team. The second-year forward out of Florida State competed in three Summer League games and averaged 34.3 MPG, 21.0 PPG, 8.3 RPG, 1.3 APG, and 1.3 SPG. Williams shot 37% from the field, 80% from the free-throw line, and 43.8% from three-point range.

Preceding what many fans hope will be a breakout season for Willams, the Bulls’ 2020 first-round pick did not disappoint in Summer League action. Williams displayed an improved catch-and-shoot three-point shot and made strides in his pick-and-roll game. Now that the Bulls have gone all-in with their new and improved roster, Williams has to take the next step for Chicago to be truly competitive in the Eastern Conference.

During his rookie season in 2020-21, Williams gave the Bulls a taste of what he can bring to the table, though he lacked aggressiveness at times. That passivity may be attributed to a lack of Summer League action in 2020 and altered practice schedules leading up to the regular season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Williams appeared in 71 games for the Bulls last year. He averaged 9.2 PPG, 4.6 RPG, and 1.4 APG and shot 48.3% from the field on 7.4 attempted shots and 39% from downtown on 1.9 attempts per game. Williams also shot 72% from the free-throw line on 1.9 attempts per game.

The highlight video below showcases Patrick Williams’s new and improved game that fans witnessed during Summer League action. Williams employs active hands-on defense, confidence in pulling up from three, and an ability to bring the ball up the court. If Williams can put it all together during the 2021-22 NBA season, the Chicago Bulls will become a major force in the Eastern Conference.
