Spurs, Knicks Work Out Elliot Williams

TUESDAY, 12:41pm: Williams worked out for the Spurs on Monday, a league source tells Shams Charania of RealGM (on Twitter). San Antonio appears to be limited to the minimum salary, with the $2.814MM room exception ticketed for Manu Ginobili. Still, the Spurs are open to adding at least one more wing player, according to Charania.

MONDAY, 9:59am: The Knicks worked out four-year veteran Elliot Williams on Sunday, reports Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports (Twitter link). Williams, the 22nd overall pick in 2010, signed a total of five 10-day contracts this past season, split among three different teams, but he didn’t end up on any deal that covered a longer amount of time.

Reports have linked the Knicks and their $2.814MM room exception to Alexey Shved, but Williams may well be a cheaper alternative at shooting guard. Williams averaged 6.0 points in 17.3 minutes per game across 67 appearances for the Sixers in 2013/14. He split his time between the Jazz, Hornets and Pelicans in 2014/15.

New York also completed its planned workout with shooting guard Daniel Hackett, who went undrafted out of USC in 2009 and has since played extensively overseas, reports David Pick of Eurobasket.com (Twitter link). He averaged 9.9 PPG in 27.4 MPG for EA7 Emporio Armani Milano of Italy this past season.
