As we all know, former Louisville star Terrence Williams’ NBA career hasn’t gone quite as planned. However, it appears that the dream is still alive.
According to Shams Charania of RealGM.com, Williams will workout for the Sacramento Kings on Thursday. He finished the 2011-12 regular season with the Kings after being waived by the Houston Rockets
Williams most recently played in the Philippines, but was waived after just three games for “taking too many shots from the perimeter.” His last stint in the NBA was with the Boston Celtics, but was waived during the summer of 2013. The Seattle native was arrested after a domestic incident, but charges were later dropped.
He spent the 2013-14 season playing in the NBDL where he was one of the league’s top players.
In 34 games he averaged impressive 20.6 points , 5.1 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.4 steals. He helped them to win the West Division title. When the NBDL season came to an end, Williams took his game outside the country. He’s played in the Phillipines, Turkey and the Dominican Republic.
It’ll be tough for Williams to earn a long-term NBA contract, but for what it’s worth, his most successful stint in the NBA came while he was with the Kings. Once he was waived by the Rockets, Williams signed on with Sacramento for the remainder of the season. In 18 games he averaged 8.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists.
