Derrick Williams — Sacramento Kings
Derrick Williams might be the most unknown player on this list, but he’s well respected in the sneaker game. While at college at Arizona, he’d always break out some ill Nike exclusives to go along with his nightly numbers (he got drafted for a reason). We hope to see more of him in the NBA in terms of playing time. If for no other reason, than more camera time for his kicks.

The sneaker bandwagon is crowded lately but if you’re into kicks, you know D-Will is the real deal. Back in college, where he led Arizona all the way to the Elite 8, you saw a glimpse into his sneaker game with a plethora of Kobe's from NIKEiD. Even though it might have produced the best Under Armour spot the company has made, his initial contract with UA kept him from wearing the heat he has in his arsenal. Now three years into his NBA career, Derrick Williams is in a position that allows sneakerheads to really shine, sneaker free agency. With a collection of samples, retros and OG Jordans in his closet, and a people behind him that help keep his closet stocked with neck-breaking kicks, D-Will is set up for sneaker stardom.
