Marcus Williams Scouting Report:
InsideHoops.com: Marcus Williams is a true point guard, a great passer who sees the floor and runs a basketball team properly. Not particularly quick or fast. Also not very athletic and has fallen out of shape in the past (but we don't expect that to happen again). Marucs hits threes but usually only takes them when he's wide open. He reminds us a bit of former Knicks point guard Mark Jackson or current NBA point guards Deron Williams or Andre Miller. At worst, he's a better Khalid El-Amin.
