I met Latavious Williams last year through my involvement with Dutt Sports. Latavious is both a terrific young player and a very nice individual. I'm thrilled for him and his opportunity to play in the NBA. The story below shows his progress, leaving space for the next chapter.
Meet Latavious Williams. While many of his high school classmates were heading to college, the 6’8”-210 pound Williams decided to forgo the backpack for basketball shoes and pursue his dream of playing professional basketball. Despite the wide array of options that lay before him, Williams chose to enter the NBA Development League, making him the first high school graduate to do so. Playing for the Tulsa 66ers, Williams’s game is marked by length and athleticism and coaches were immediately impressed by his tireless work-ethic and eagerness to be a student of basketball.
