Can create off the dribble and finishes well in and around the paint
Good vision, passes teammates open
Shoots it well from the mid-range 15 -18 ft
Rebounds well from the guard position
Good on-ball defender
Good positional size and strength
Poor shooter from the 3pt line (28%)
Gets out of control driving to the basket leading charge calls
Loose with the ball makes careless passes (TO prone)
Late rotations as a help defender which leads to gambling for steal or block attempts
Poor FT shooter
Alondes is a big strong guard with good athleticism, vision, and ability to finish in the lane with contact. He is also a pretty good mid-range jump shooter, above-average rebounder for his position, and good on-ball defender. He needs to improve his shooting from behind the 3pt line and must also do a better job valuing the basketball; he has too many turnovers.

Volume Shooting Analytics:
Williams has data significant enough to make determinations on his volume shooting potential. He does not meet the threshold, but is very close. In games with a high number of three point attempts, Williams shoots 39% from 3. He is 13th out of 22 in volume shooters with significant data.
This data was created by AJ Wahl by ploting each game of a player's most recent season. The x-axis represents the amount of threes taken per minute, in order to normalize for minutes played. The y-axis is simply the player's three point percentage in that particular game. The line represents the trend between a player's three point volume, and their success. A upward slope means that a player gains efficiency as they shoot more often, and a downward slope means that a player loses efficiency the more shots they take. Note that 0.2 3PA/36 is roughly 7 3s, and 0.3 translates to 11 3s. Only players with an R^2 value above .04 were analyzed, to ensure that each player has at least some correlation between their attempts and their frequency.
Defensive Versatility Analytics:
Williams is below average in defensive versatility, in the 40th percentile. He is helped by spending much of his time guarding ball handlers, although he is not very adept at this.
This data was hand-tracked by AJ Wahl and Bryon Cook. Every single defensive possesion of each player's season was analyzed. This dataset includes all possessions when the defender is guarding on-ball, in man-to-man, and against a player not within their position group who shoots the ball, is fouled, or commits a turnover. The percentile listed above is a players standing compared to their postion group calculated by compliling and weighing various different metrics derrived from the hand-tracked data. This data only measures a portion of a player's impact, but it is clear that the ability to defend out of one's position group is a vital skill to contributing to winning basketball at the professional level.
