wherefore art thou, marcus williams.

i suppose it's too early to condemn billy knight's new batch of genius draft picks. but here is what draftexpress.com (which tends to rave about everybody) has to say about shelden william's performance thus far in the summer league:
Shelden Williams played a little better tonight which is to say that he should be able to make a developmental league squad. For the 5th pick in the draft Shelden has looked terrible. He still pulls some rebounds but seems to block shots more by luck than anything else. He isn't bigger and stronger than his competition anymore and it turns out he is slower than almost everyone else on top of that.
not good. one of those not-funny jackasses on blue collar comedy likes to say "you can't fix stupid". well in the NBA, the adage should go "you can't fix slow". i hope shelden turns out to be decent player, but i'm not optimistic.

meanwhile, here's a portion of what they had to say about marcus williams, who at number 22 is the steal of the draft (jordan farmar is another early candidate):
Williams was very good today once again, not shooting the ball quite as well as he did earlier in the summer league, but still doing a fantastic job running his team and making everyone around him better. He got right into the heart of the defense a number of times and made some fantastic passes to his big men for easy finishes. His court vision is second to none and Willaims sees things immediately as they happen.
that hawks couldn't use a player like that, could they? oh, never mind, we signed fucking speedy claxton.

apparently, Al Harrington is going bye-bye. He was on V103 announcing that he was leaving the Hawks on Thursday afternoon.
