The Suns have signed forward/center Alan Williams to a multiyear contract, the team announced today. Williams inked a 10-day deal with Phoenix on March 8th and saw his first action in Thursday’s game at Utah.
A Phoenix native and UC Santa Barbara product, Williams wasn’t taken in last year’s NBA draft. He went to China, where he posted averages of 20.8 points and 15.4 rebounds for Qingdao, becoming the top rebounder in the Chinese Basketball Association. He’s also the top rebounder and second-leading scorer in UC Santa Barbara history.
Williams played for the Rockets’ entry in the 2015 Summer League, earning All-NBA Summer League Second Team honors. He averaged 20.5 points and 11.8 rebounds in four games in the Las Vegas league.
