Derrick Williams looks to follow in Kevin Love's footsteps this summer for big improvement

5

MINNEAPOLIS - Derrick Williams entered his rookie season with the Minnesota Timberwolves as one of the favorites for the NBA's rookie of the year. Scouts and executives saw a polished offensive player who would flourish in Rick Adelman's system and translate quickly to the NBA. After a grueling first season in which he showed promise with several huge games, he hit the rookie wall hard in April. Williams is preparing for a crucial summer of work to ensure major improvement next year. Williams averaged 8.8 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. The No. 2 overall pick says he wants to follow in All-Star Kevin Love's footsteps. Love has gained a reputation for exhaustive summer workouts that are credited with his significant improvement in his first four years in the league. Maybe Dolphin can lose 25lbs and play the 3 spot for us and we can let Skittles walk.
