The 45 Most Important Players to the Chicago Bulls Dynasty - #33 Corey Williams

Corey Williams
Corey Williams was drafted at the top of the second round of the 1992 NBA Draft by the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls had this high pick in the second round as part of a deal that will involve two people that we will get to later on this list, as Bobby Hansen also headed to the Bulls in exchange for Dennis Hopson.

Although his numbers at Oklahoma State didn't stand out, his athleticism did. He was even drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 12th round of the NFL Draft despite not playing football since middle school. This was during a period where any really good athlete had the potential to become Michael Jordan which just showed how little people understood about how a Michael Jordan is created.

But Corey Williams was good enough to become a bench contributor for the 1992-93 Chicago Bulls. But for a guy who played in 35 games, he found a way to have some really nondescript contributions. Here are his season highs:

Points: 10
Rebounds: 4
Assists: 2
Steals: 1
Blocks: 1
Minutes: 23

There's not a ton to get excited about there, but I am happy that he scored double-digit points once in his career.

These numbers were not enough to earn him any playing time during the playoffs. He was waived before the following season, played a handful of games with the Minnesota Timberwolves and his NBA career was over. Williams stayed active in basketball by playing in China. He then became an assistant coach at the college level and is currently the head coach at Stetson. They are the best smelling team in college basketball.
