Default Re: Better player : Derrick Williams or Tristian Thompson?

Consistency is the key, and Thompson has been reliable and steadily getting better.

Its ironic that messageboard hacks can see that Williams is a great 4 but the Wolves and all the guys who are paid to study the game don't act on it. If he was a great 4, he would have made a spot for himself and they'd find a way for him to play more 4. Teams don't sleep on assets, and the Wolves would love to trade another black asset for a white guy.

im curious as to how serious the trade rumors involving derrick williams were.
