In the 2005 NBA Mock Draft from Hoops Hype he's listed as the #5 pick overall which would give him a guaranteed contract and a salary of around $2.3 million.

The 2005 NBA Mock Draft at CHN College Hoops also has Williams as the fifth overall pick and has Luther Head going 51st to the Chicago Bulls.

In the NBA Mock Draft at, Williams is projected as the #5 pick and Head is in the second round.
