Congratulations to Patrick Williams. The West Charlotte High School All American was selected by the Chicago Bulls with the #4 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. The 6 foot-8, 225 pound forward was the 2nd youngest player in the 2020 draft and joins the likes of Charlotte natives Stephen Curry (#7 / 2009), Antawn Jamison (#4 /1998), Walter Davis (#5 / 1977) and Bobby Jones was (#5 in 1974) all going in the Top 10.
When asked about his new job, Williams said, “Just focus on the hard work, make sure I’m in the gym and make sure whatever team takes me I’m ready. I pretty much told them (Bulls management) I’m there to contribute. Pretty much the same mindset I had at Florida State. Coming in to contribute any way I can whether that’s starting and playing big minutes or coming off the bench or handing out Gatorade. I’m just there to contribute and give it my all.”
From all your Charlotte fans and family we want to say CONGRATULATIONS!!! We can’t wait to see you on the NBA court.
