Williams is 26. The reliable outside shooter has averaged double digits every year he has played in the NBA except his rookie season. The Jazz acquired Williams in exchange for point guard Devin Harris to make room for newly acquired Mo Williams. An 18,000-seat community center bearing Williams’ name is being constructed in his hometown of Bremerton, Wash. Williams is content. "I don’t have to live up to anybody’s expectations but my own," he said. "I have to look at myself in the mirror every night. And when I do that, I’m very satisfied with where I came from and what I’m working toward." Salt Lake Tribune

Jazz offseason additions of Mo Williams, Randy Foye and Marvin Williams: We got lucky. We got a ton of a great talent, especially with the veteran guys we've got coming in. We've got a lot of veteran guys, but we've also got a young nucleus. It helps us out in both facets. With those guys coming, we added a lot of ballhandling; we added some shooting; and a lot of leadership. Those guys are going to bring a lot to the table. Salt Lake Tribune

Smith was in his second season when Johnson arrived in Atlanta with the expectation of being the team’s star.

The Jazz trade exception is for 10.8 million dollars. Jazz can trade for player of 10.8 or less, look around the NBA and not a lot of players, maybe none better than Mo Williams who earn less than 10.8 million and will be available. Moreover, have only 1 year on their deal allowing the Jazz to maintain flexibility for the 13-14 off-season. Marion is 8.6 but has another year. Marvin Williams in 8.3 but has another year. Sulia

The NBA admitted Friday that a tardy foul call on the Celtics late in Game 6 cost the Hawks an extra free throw. With 3.1 seconds left in the game and the Hawks trailing 81-79, Boston’s Marquis Daniels was called for fouling Hawks center Al Horford as teammate Marvin Williams was about to inbound the ball. By rule, if a personal foul is assessed against the defense before the ball is released on a throw-in, the offense is awarded one free throw and possession of the ball. Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Coach Larry Drew said officials told him Daniels fouled Horford after Williams released the ball. The league office, in a post on one of its official Twitter feeds Friday, agreed but said the replay showed “the foul on Daniels should have been called sooner than it was by the officials, in which case it would have met the requirements of an Away-From-The-Play Foul.” The Hawks protested the call during the game, to no avail. “That would have been a huge play, a huge turn of events,” Hawks forward Josh Smith said.
