Although it may seem a distant memory, it wasn’t that long ago when Terrence Williams was one of the best college basketball players in the country and leading Louisville into the NCAA Tournament.
Blessed with immense skills, Williams’ transition to the NBA was about as rough as possible after being drafted by the New Jersey New (now Brooklyn) with the 16th overall selection in 2009.
Peppered with red flags, there’s no doubt that Williams was a top ten pick at minimum if he wasn’t so troubled but his issues forced his stock to slip. His tenure with the Nets didn’t last long and Williams, being a problem child was sent to the Houston Rockets where he spent portions of two seasons.
It didn’t get any better as Williams struggled to get off the bench and frustrated with his playing time, the team eventually parted ways with the swingman.
He was then given a chance by the Sacramento Kings and during his short stint in the California capital, Terrence Williams looked like the talent so many remembered from his college days. It looked as if T-Will had finally etched himself into the league and his impressive played interested the Boston Celtics who signed him to a multi-year deal. More problems arose for Williams, this time off the court allegedly and the Celtics decided to move on.
Now Terrence Williams is back on the market and is said to be seeking a new team. He’s reportedly worked out for the Kings in the past few days and he may have dropped a not-so-subtle hint on Instagram about what his future plans may be.
The caption including his son suggesting that he liked when Williams played for Sacramento.
For what it’s worth the Kings have made no comment though they have previously stated a desire to add an additional ball handler, something Williams excels in.
