It's not like he's 18 years old either, he was supposed to be an immediate contributor for the Wolves.

I agree.

Kwame Brown is still a useful player in the NBA after 10+ years, but he's most definitely a bust. When you're a top 3 pick, the minimum expectation should be regular All-Star. I don't ever see Derrick Williams getting to that level. And he doesn't have anything to fall back on like Kwame does (post defense) that could keep him in the NBA as a role player for 10 years. There are any number of tweener forwards out there just like him.
