Report: NBA Vet Reggie Williams Returning to Play in the D-League

According to a report from one of our friends, NBA vet Reggie Williams is apparently headed back to the D-League.

Jerome Miron-US PRESSWIRE

Back in 2009-10, swingman Reggie Williams took the NBA D-League by storm, scoring 26.4 points per contest for the Sioux Falls Skyforce en route to getting himself noticed and subsequently becoming a household name and worthwhile role player in The Association.

But following four NBA seasons (two each with the Golden State Warriors & Charlotte Bobcats), the veteran with an 8.6 point per game average (on 46% from the field) is reportedly returning to basketball's minor league.

According to our good pal Gino Pilato of DLeagueDigest.com, Williams (now a free agent) is set to hit the NBADL hardwood once again. Pilato also asserts that the swingman will likely end up with Iowa, Springfield, or Tulsa.

As evidenced in recent seasons, Williams has what it takes to compete in the NBA and provide any team with serviceable minutes off the bench. While teams around the league may already be well aware of that, coming back to continue pouring in the points on the D-League level in the meantime may not be the worst idea by any means.

Just this fall, the 27 year old participated in training camp with the Houston Rockets, but with so much talent already gracing the team's roster, Williams found himself to be the odd man out.
