Is Terrence Williams worth chasing ?

Terrence Williams is an unrestricted free agent and hasn't at this stage received a qualifying offer from the Kings.

In his last two years he has played sporadically at best, playing 30 games last season and 20 something the season before. He was only out for a month with injury ,with his attitude apparently being the cause of his absence from the court.

In his 18 games with Sacramento at the end of last season he proved he can certainly play still, after spending 1 1/2 seasons on the end of the Rockets bench.

Without a doubt I think this guy would be a great pickup for a team like Charlotte, a scorers go also can run the floor and make smart passes.

Which team should chase him, if any?

I think there are lots of

I think there are lots of good places for him to go.

Magic - They need some exciting young players. When given the chance, he is proven that he is, at the very least, exciting.

Lakers - They just got Nash so now they need to start working to improve the bench. Ebanks doesnt look like he is going to pan out so they need a guy to score for the second unit. Preferably a guy who can play the 2/3. Williams fits that bill.

Cavs - With the Cavs drafting a SG and a C this year, they just need a promising piece at the SF spot. Williams runs the floor and would be excting playing with Irving. I think their games even compliment each other well.. He is a bigger version of the rookie they took at 4.

Dallas - It looks like they have lost Terry.. That means they have lost a huge part of what made that team good.. They could score on second units. Williams cant provide exactly what Terry did but he can definatly score on second units..

would be nice to see williams

would be nice to see williams go to Dallas, could be a good help to Dirk in Scoring, especially with terry out,

he was a triple double guy in the D-league, if this guy could put on some work on his attitude towards the game he should be a heck of a good player

spurs

This guy would be great for the spurs if anyone can get his career on track its pop, look at what he did for diaw and Jackson last season diaw was a non factor last year with Charlotte last year but with San Antonio he made a huge impact, captain Jack was causing problems for Milwaukee but with the spurs pop kept him in check and he was killing it from deep in the postseason, Terrence is a perfect fit he can pass, defend, and is versatile

It's all about team culture

It's all about team culture for this kid. Dallas and San Antonio make a lot of sense, as do Boston and Chicago.

A question like this can

A question like this can always be answered with the Spurs. They always get the best out of players. But like the post above, I agree that the Cavs will be a perfect fit. I like Gee, but think he's more valuable eventually coming off the bench. Williams will give them a 3rd ball handler, with Waiters and Irving, and another solid defender. I also like Scott, as well as coach Pop, to get the best out of Williams. He has never played with a veteran coach who he can respect, and I'm saying this not being sure if he played with Avery Johnson or not. Apart from San Antonio and Cleveland, I'll like Atlanta to take a stab at him since it's looking like we're rebuilding. Portland isn't a bad idea if the lose Batum to Minnesota, as well as Minnesota if they lose out on Batum. Williams is an instant upgrade over Johnson at the 3 and I don't think Deron Williams is a good fit at the position. obviously the Wolves feel the same sane way if they're courting Batum.

CAVS. We need a SF. It is a massive hole if you have ever seen one. Gee is great (if we can keep him) but better coming off the bench. I can not stand to see Cassipi out there, he is just awful. And don't get me started on Luke Harangody.

The Lakers make sense since

The Lakers make sense since they need some more help at the wing. An athletic finisher who can pass would be perfect to have next to Nash, Kobe, Pau, and Bynum.

If the Nets do that Dwight Howard trade then they will need some depth. So they might want to bring back Terrence Williams. I actually think the other contenders could use him in certain situations.

If Miami fails to get Ray Allen or another key free agent then Terrence Williams might be a good cheap signing as a backup to LeBron at the 3 and Wade at the 2. Mike Miller might quit. If he doesn't he is still old and they need some youth on the wings. When they go small with a LeBron, Battier, and Bosh front line that team doesn't have much coming off the bench at the wing. He could be a good guy on that team who could play defense, pass, and finish. As it stands, their wing rotation guys outside of LeBron, Wade, and Battier, are fairly one-dimensional shooters in Mike Miller and James Jones.

The Celtics are regrouping, keeping KG and signing Jason Terry. But, it they don't resign Ray Allen or fail to replace him they will be lacking depth on the wing. Terrence Williams could backup Paul Pierce and add some size in the backcourt
when Avery Bradley is out of the game. Or, they could use T Will at point and Avery Bradley at the 2 for a younger, longer, more athletic backcourt.

The Thunder did draft Perry Jones and have signed Hasheem Thabeet, but other than that they have been relatively quiet. They could use a backup to Durant especially if they play Perry Jones at the 4. T Will could give them another defensive presence on the wing next to Thabo Sefolosha. He would also give them another playmaker on the wing along with James Harden. With Harden and Williams in the lineup they could run the offense through the 2 and 3 spots and play Westbrook off the ball more. The Thunder could use a good wing glue guy off the bench as well as another defender. He would also complement their other offseason acquisitions.

Is he worth being chased?

Is he worth being chased? No.

I feel that he'll get another shot, although it will probably be a deal similar to Thabeet's. A league minimum one or two year signing that essentially gives him another shot to prove himself as an NBA player. Like Thabeet, if he doesn't I feel this will be the last contract he signs in the NBA.

I feel it's make or break for Terrance Williams.

Good Team Good Coach

I'm still a T-Will fan even though his career has been disappointing so far but he needs to go to a winning team with a good/great coach to bring the best out of him

Unrestricted free agent

Unrestricted free agent Terrence Williams has received interest from the Sacramento Kings, Detroit Pistons and Phoenix Suns, according to sources close to the situation. Williams, who averaged 8.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists last season with the Kings, is weighing his options.

.

dont know the source, but i wouldnt doubt it... if i was a young team i would be scared of this guy in my team. if i was a vet. team, i'd get him.

New York

He will fit in well at the Garden. He will be a good player of the bench that can score at times and he will be a lock down defender under Mike Woodson. I think it is a good match.
