OCTOBER 1ST: The Pistons have officially signed Williams, according to a team release.
SEPTEMBER 20TH: Free agent guard Terrence Williams, who spent time with the Rockets and Kings last season, has agreed on a contract to attend training camp with the Pistons, tweets Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski. The head coach of the Pistons is, of course, Lawrence Frank, who coached Williams when they crossed paths in New Jersey. Sam Amick of SI.com tweets that the deal will be a "conditional guarantee for one year minimum," meaning that the deal becomes for guaranteed dollars at a certain date.
Detroit worked out Williams last week, and he must have made an impression. After being traded to Sacramento last March, Williams received increased playing time and averaged 8.8 points over 18 games. It was the highest scoring average with one team in one season in his career. At age 25, and only three years removed from being the 11th overall pick, Williams will have to earn a roster spot if he wants to have a chance to fulfill his once-perceived potential.
