Rebounds per game
Even though ‘Big Sauce’ is entering his third year in the NBA, he still has the opportunity to shatter a plethora of personal bests this season, especially if Alex Len fails to re-sign with the franchise.
But regardless of Len’s placement on the team, Alan Williams could still push at least one current personal high well above last season’s peak: rebounds per game.
The one statistic that Williams can flourish in above all others is his rebounding average, which, especially if Tyson Chandler’s minutes are curtailed somewhat to provide additional minutes for Williams, he could break the 10 rebounds per game plateau easily. From February 26 to March 26 last season, Williams averaged a double double while tearing down 10.4 boards per game.
With regular minutes, and now a contract as evidence that the team will expect something like this from him all season, it doesn’t seem out of the realm of possibility at all that he breaks the 10 rebounds per game barrier, shattering his career-high.
