On Monday afternoon, Shams Charania of RealGM reported that the Sacramento Kings had brought Terrence Williams in for a second individual workout. The guard initially strutted his stuff for the team this past summer.
The difference this time around , however, is that the Kings just recently released guard Trey Johnson, making them one of only a handful of NBA teams to have a roster spot open. Williams has a legitimate chance of getting that spot and revitalizing his career.
At 27, Williams is still young enough to make a comeback and be a contributor on an NBA team. Such evidence can be found by looking at Gerald Green, who last year at age 27 had his breakout season.
Williams spent most of 2013-14 in the NBA D-League with the Los Angeles D-Fenders. He played in 32 games, started 26, and helped lead the team to the playoffs, though they were bounced following a first-round exit. Still, Williams was stellar averaging 20.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 6.4 assists in 35.7 minutes a night for the D-Fenders. He has never been mistaken for a "shooter," but he shot a respectable 42% from the floor, 38% rom 3-point range, and 63% from the charity stripe..
Williams has also played small stints in the Philippines, Puerto Rico and Turkey and impressing during all stops. He last played in the NBA for the Celtics during the 2012-13 season. His career averages are 7.1 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 153 NBA games.
Here's a sample of what T-Will is capable of as he dropped a D-Fenders single game scoring record with 50 points against the Idaho Stampede last year.
