2. Cody Williams

Cody Williams has been mentioned as the potential top pick in the 2024 NBA Draft, as there hasn't been a clear-cut number one pick in the class. At 6-foot-8, he possesses the perfect size for a wing and his length certainly doesn't hurt.

He's a good slasher and can score inside the paint quite well. As he possesses underrated playmaking chops.

Williams has ran into injury woes, causing him to miss 13 games this season. Williams' long-range shot was questioned coming of high school, but he's alleviated those concerns, shooting 42.1 percent from deep on 1.8 tries.

Williams has averaged 12.6 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 1.7 assists, while shooting a team-high 56.5 percent from the field. His ability on the defensive end is what has many excited, as his aforementioned length and basketball IQ benefits him tremendously on that end, in addition to his instincts.
