Derrick Williams has been with the Cleveland Cavaliers for all of a week, having been acquired as an emergency fill-in for the injured squad after being bought out by the Miami Heat.

The former No. 2 overall pick has been a solid contributor for the Cavs - averaging 9.8 points on 60 percent shooting through four games - but ESPN color analyst Bill Walton was less than impressed with this one possession late in Wednesday's win over the Indiana Pacers.

"One of the four worst possessions of his career in the NBA," Walton said after Williams isolated on the right wing and clanked a step-back jumper late in the shot clock.

In fairness, Walton acknowledged he was drawing on a pretty small sample.

"You haven't watched a lot of Derrick Williams," suggested Walton's broadcast partner, Dave Pasch.

"First time I've seen him," Walton said.
