February's D-League Player of the Month award, Williams was further rewarded with an NBA call-up by the Golden State Warriors.
And the Warriors cannot complain with their acquisition.
Since joining Golden State, Williams has averaged 12.8 points, 3 rebounds and 2.5 assists in six NBA games. Most notably, the 6'6 forward recorded 28 points against the New Orleans Hornets on March 8th. Not bad for the first ever professional basketball player to come out of Virginia Military Institute.
But despite losing their star guard, the Skyforce have not dropped off the D-League map. Recent power rankings place the Skyforce atop the pack after winning nine consecutive games. Taking the star role of Williams, Skyforce forward Alexander Johnson was dubbed Performer of the Week during the week of March 1 for averaging 30 points and 13.3 rebounds during that stretch.
Thus, while Williams builds his professional resume with NBA experience, a new star Skyforcer emerges in Sioux Falls by the name of Johnson.
