With the 14th overall pick in the 1991 GAH draft, the Sacramento Kings select Jayson Williams from St. John's.
The 6'9" and 240 lbs big man is well known as one of the best rebounders to ever play in the NCAA. The Kings are hoping he can be the ideal fit in the painted area next to Derrick Coleman, who had a pretty good rookie season. Some were thinking the Kings would opt to draft a shooting guard given that second GAH team guard Clyde Drexler is a free agent, but sources within the organization report that the team is confident to bring Drexler back. Whether Williams plays at his natural power forward position or moves to the center spot remains to be seen, but the Kings now have two young players who can dominate the boards.
