Williams-Goss and Zach Collins, chosen by Portland at No. 10 in the first round, give the Zags a pair of draft picks for the first time since 1971.
Williams-Goss led GU in points (16.8), assists (4.7) and steals (1.7) last season while earning WCC player of the year honors and making several All-American teams.
Williams-Goss heads to Utah, where Gonzaga legend John Stockton played 19 seasons in a Hall of Fame career.
Former GU center Przemek Karnowski and wing Jordan Mathews went undrafted. Both were considered long shots to be selected.
The Portland Trail Blazers wanted Zach Collins and dealt a pair of first-round picks to Sacramento to acquire the former Gonzaga Bulldog during Thursday’s NBA Draft.
The 19-year-old forward/center didn’t have to wait long – roughly an hour in a fast-moving first round – before hearing his name called by NBA commissioner Adam Silver at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Portland swapped the 15th and 20th picks to Sacramento. Collins donned a Kings’ cap after his selection was announced but he had been informed of the trade. The trade became official about an hour later. Jim Meehan/SR
