Since being drafted 11th overall by New Jersey in 2009, Terrence Williams has played for three different teams. Williams was traded to the Rockets by the Nets in 2011, then signed with the Kings this March after being waived by Houston. While the Louisville product has yet to find a permanent NBA home, his stint in Sacramento is off to a promising start.
Williams, coming off a Kings win in which he scored 12 points and grabbed 12 boards (his best rebounding game since 2009/10), told Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee he'd love to stay in Sacramento. The Kings signed the third-year swingman for the rest of this season, but Williams would listen if the team had interest in keeping him around longer than that.
"I'm a free agent July 1st," Williams said. "I'll take any calls from Sacramento. Hopefully we'll get something to work out. I love it here and I love playing here and I think I fit in well."
Having fallen well out of playoff contention, the Kings figure to give Williams plenty of minutes over the season's final few weeks to determine whether or not he's part of the team's future. For his part, Williams said he'd be open to either a one-year or multiyear deal. The Kings have about $42.5MM in guaranteed money committed to salaries for 2012/13, but have three restricted free agents they'll need to decide on, in Williams, Jason Thompson, and Donte Greene.
