Articles about Marcus Williams

July 30, 2010

Marcus Williams - Williams was Memphis's other backup point guard last year, alongside Tinsley. Like Tinsley, he had fallen out of the league due to weight problems and lacklustre play; like Tinsley, he was looking to the Grizzlies (who were willing to take more chances in a bid to strike gold) as a way back into the fold. And like Tinsley he wasn't very good either. Williams got back into the NBA because of how brilliantly he ran the Grizzlies full-court offense in summer league, but it didn't translate to the regular season, where his own lack of offense was again costly. Williams might still get other looks, and it would probably benefit him greatly to get them on teams with more disciplined offenses than Memphis. It's a talented team, but not a smart one.
