Sixers To Sign Rodney Williams

FRIDAY, 6:23pm: Agent Kevin Bradbury has informed Wolfson that Williams has signed his deal (Twitter link). The Sixers have yet to confirm it.

MONDAY, 2:10pm: The Sixers are expected to sign Rodney Williams to a multiyear contract tomorrow, according to Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities. Wolfson tweets that the deal will likely include a partial guarantee.

Assuming his contract with the Sixers is only partially guaranteed, Williams won't necessarily have an inside track to a roster spot. Still, Philadelphia's camp is expected to be fairly wide open, which should give the 22-year-old a chance to earn a spot on the regular season roster. The club only has nine guaranteed contracts on its books for now, though that number will increase to 11 when Nerlens Noel and Michael Carter-Williams officially sign.

Williams, who went undrafted in June, averaged 10.1 PPG and 5.0 RPG in his senior year at Minnesota. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reported way back on the morning after the draft that Williams had agreed to a deal with the Sixers, though at the time it wasn't clear if it would be for more than Summer League play. Williams recorded 8.0 PPG and 1.2 RPG in five contests for Philadelphia's Summer League squad.
