Deron Williams believes that there are only a few players who possess the same all-round ability as Brooklyn Nets teammate Andrei Kirilenko.

Deron Williams has praised Brooklyn Nets teammate Andrei Kirilenko for his ability to excel in all areas of his game.

Point guard Williams, who also played with Kirilenko for the Utah Jazz, believes that there are not many players in the NBA who produce better all-round performances than the Russian.

"There's not many players in this league - I don't think there's any players in this league - that can fill up a stat sheet the way he does," the 29-year-old told reporters.

"He's going to get rebounds, blocks and steals. He's going to shoot a high percentage. He passes like a point guard."

Kirilenko signed a two-year contract with the Nets in July.
