When the Spurs signed Williams to a 10-day contract on Wednesday, Williams said his long pro basketball journey has made this latest stop even more rewarding. “It’s cliché, but you never give up,” Williams said. “I went from being undrafted to playing overseas, then in the D-League, then the NBA. Going back and forth has been my life. It has helped me to always keep working, because these opportunities don’t always come around.”
The Oklahoma City Blue has acquired guard Reggie Williams through its returning player rights, the team announced today. In a related move, Oklahoma City acquired a third round pick in the 2015 NBA D-League Draft from the Westchester Knicks in exchange for forward Ron Anderson. A five-year NBA veteran, Williams has previously played for both the Oklahoma City Thunder and its NBA D-League affiliate. Appearing in 180 career NBA games (32 starts) with Golden State, Charlotte and Oklahoma City, Williams has averaged 8.5 games, 2.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 19.7 minutes. In three games with the Thunder last season, Williams averaged 3.7 points in 5.7 minutes.
I saw you said they gave Michael Beasley’s No. 8 to Shawne Williams. So I guess they’re not going to retire Bease’s number? (OK, so it means he’s not coming back?) — Henrique. A: An adjustment still could be made if Beasley is brought back, but that is an increasing longshot. But it’s also not as if the Heat are mass producing Shawne Williams jerseys at this stage, either. While Beasley appears to be in the rearview mirror, the Heat still seems to be lacking on the wing, where the current options are Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Danny Granger, Reggie Williams, James Ennis and Tyler Johnson. There simply is not a lot of one-on-one creativity there, no one, really, other that Wade who can score off the dribble.

Williams, a 6-foot-6 sharpshooter with four years of NBA experience, is being called up from the Thunder-owned Tulsa 66ers of the NBA Development League. He is averaging a team-leading 21.1 points per game for the 66ers, along with 5.4 rebounds and 4.9 assists in 37.5 minutes. In 19 games this season, 15 as a starter, Williams has shot 49.5 percent from the field and 39.5 percent from behind the 3-point line.

(Reggie) Williams will be an unrestricted free agent next summer and one of his goals entering this season was to prove to the Bobcats and other teams around the league that his knee is fully healed. “I want to definitely prove that my knee is 100 percent,” Williams said to HOOPSWORLD on his goal heading into free agency next summer. “I want to show why [the Bobcats] signed me to score, shoot and do the things I used to do in Golden State. It’s just a bad time for me because I got injured and had to do the surgery. Coming into this season, I felt really good.”
The Bobcats have signed shooting guard Reggie Williams to a two-year contract, the team confirmed on Thursday. Williams, entering his third NBA season, is expected to join the Bobcats today for workouts. Williams had been a restricted free agent but Golden State rescinded his rights in their efforts to sign a center. Bobcats coach Paul Silas said last week his team’s biggest need was to find a shooting guard and Williams fills that role.
