Colorado’s Cody Williams Entering 2024 NBA Draft

Colorado freshman forward Cody Williams, a projected lottery pick who is currently No. 10 on ESPN’s big board, is declaring for the 2024 NBA Draft, he told Adrian Wojnarowski and Jonathan Givony of ESPN.

In 24 games for the Buffaloes in 2023/24 (28.4 MPG), Williams averaged 11.9 PPG, 3.0 RPG and 1.6 APG on a .552/.415/.714 shooting line. He’s considered one of the top defenders in the 2024 class, according to ESPN.

At one point, Williams was considered a contender for the top overall pick, ranking No. 2 in ESPN’s mock draft in February. However, minor injuries limited his effectiveness toward the end of the season, per Wojnarowski and Givony.

In addition to scoring efficiently, particularly in the open court, Williams was frequently tasked with defending the opposing teams’ top scorer, ESPN’s duo adds. The Arizona native is the young brother of Thunder forward Jalen Williams.
