Articles about Frank Williams

Frank Williams - Williams was arrested for possessing quite a lot of marijuana in the summer of 2009, and last played in Argentina in 2010. His two newsworthy moments since then involved receiving probation in a plea deal for the arrest (2011) and being inducted into the Greater Peoria Sports Hall of Fame (2013). He is otherwise untraced.

- Frank Williams

Former NBA first round draft pick was also in the D-League in 2008-09, where he was busy reinventing himself as a three pointer. If you remember Frank's backboard-defying jumpshot from back in the day, you might question that as a career move, but it was necessitated. Frank's speed and athleticism, the things which got him drafted that high, no longer exist. He cast up 7 three pointers a game last season and passed for 3.6 apg in 37 minutes; he became a three point shooting specialist that couldn't shoot threes very well (32%).

In the summer, Frank got arrested for possession, originally with intent to deliver. Frank was arrested along with his brother with 78 grams of marijuana and a digital scale in his flat, which looks pretty ominous, but somehow the intent to deliver charge was avoided in a plea agreement. He spent this season in Argentina with Union de Sunchales, but averaged only 7.0 points and 1.2 assists before moving to another Argentinian team, Ciclista Olimpico de La Banda. There, he averaged 15.5 points and 3.5 assists per game, again shooting 7 three pointers a game, but hitting a better 37% of them this year.
