In an interview with ClutchPoints, Williams was asked about his thoughts on second-round picks Ausar Thompson and Marcus Sasser. Williams responded by saying that he was so impressed with the two players that he wanted to “arrange a marriage” between them and his daughters.

“Those two guys just made play after play and played winning basketball, which is something that makes me want to take them home and arrange a marriage with my daughters,” Williams said. “I’m just kidding, but they’re really good.”

Thompson and Sasser are both 20-year-old guards who were drafted by the Suns in the second round of the 2022 NBA Draft. Thompson played college basketball at the University of Memphis, while Sasser played at the University of Houston.

Both players have impressed the Suns coaching staff during the offseason. Thompson has been praised for his athleticism and his ability to score the ball, while Sasser has been praised for his defense and his passing ability.

It is still too early to say how Thompson and Sasser will perform in the NBA. However, Williams’ comments suggest that he is very high on both players. If they can continue to develop, they could be two key contributors for the Suns in the future.

In addition to his comments about Thompson and Sasser, Williams also spoke about the importance of family in his life. He said that his family is his “everything” and that they are the reason why he is so passionate about coaching basketball.

“My family is my everything,” Williams said. “They’re the reason why I do what I do. They’re the reason why I’m so passionate about coaching basketball. I want to make them proud.”

Williams is a well-respected coach in the NBA, and he is known for his ability to connect with his players. His comments about Thompson, Sasser, and his family show that he is a man who values family and relationships. It will be interesting to see how he continues to develop as a coach and as a person.
