Former Celtics guard Terrence Williams, who played two games for Turk Telekom before leaving the Turkish League team last month, is eyeing a stint in the NBA Development League. And, according to a league source, there is mutual interest between Williams and the Maine Red Claws, the Celtics' D League affiliate. That interest, however, does not guarantee that Williams will join the Red Claws, currently in second place in the East Division. Williams must sign with the D League and then go through the waiver claim process. In order for him to land with the Red Claws, he would need to be passed on by other teams. Boston Herald

It wasn’t that long ago that a few of us, myself included, were very intrigued by the possibility of Terrence Williams backing up Rajon Rondo. Then, in May, TWill got himself caught up in a bit of a mess that involved accusations of pulling a gun on the mother of his child. I spoke to his attorney Aaron Kiviat today, and he told me that King County Prosecutors have decided not to pursue the case. In a statement, his attorney said the following: Terrence feels grateful for the diligent and thorough investigation that the King County Prosecutors Office and the Kent Police Department conducted in this matter. Terrence was confident from the beginning that he had acted in self-defense, and is vindicated in knowing that law enforcement felt the same way after reviewing all of the evidence presented to them.

206. The area code for Seattle. Peyton Siva has it tatted on his arm, and many don’t realize it, but chances are that he wouldn’t have even been at ‘The Ville to lead them to a national championship if it weren’t for a fellow Seattle native opening his eyes to the Kentucky school. “T-Will [Terrence Williams] went there, and I grew up working out with him,” Siva said. “Watching him play there made me really want to go Louisville. The funny thing is that they weren’t really recruiting me and I had to say, ‘Coach, I really like Louisville a lot’ to get them to come look at me. They watched me play, then offered me the next day.” SLAM

By the time that the Draft rolls around, Siva will have had workouts with half of the League. Word on the street is that he has been shooting the rock well and impressing teams with interviews. There have still been concerns about his size (6-1 in shoes), but Siva feels that it isn’t your stature that makes you; it’s what you have inside your heart. “For anyone who questions height, I really don’t think it matters as long as you have heart and come to play,” the uber-confident playmaker said. “You saw the way Isaiah Thomas came out and proved everyone wrong this year. Chris Paul is not the tallest guy out there either, but he is a truly amazing point guard. I think that if you have game and go out there playing with heart, you’ll be fine.” SLAM

After being arrested earlier in the week, Williams is free on $25,000 bail while prosecutors investigate allegations of second-degree domestic assault against Williams, who spoke with reporters after working out at the team’s practice facility. “We all know there’s two sides to every story,” said Williams, who averaged 4.6 points in 24 regular-season games with Boston this season. “That’s all I’m going to say about that, I’m not crazy. You guys have been around me for whatever 2½ months, I’m not crazy at all.” Boston Globe

Williams said he has spoken with both Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge and coach Doc Rivers about his future and suggested the team envisions him as part of their future plan. `"We talked about the future, and I was part of that. Everything else, is between us," said Williams. Asked if that was an encouraging vote of confidence from his employer, Williams added, "Very encouraging. Because everybody writes a million stories that I’m just this horrible person. Whatever, I’ve been used to that my whole life, for 25 years." ESPN.com

Chris Forsberg: Terrence Williams on arrest situation: "It's very frustrating, because I was there, I know what happened, and I know what didn’t happen. To anybody reading, and everybody that’s writing these stories, it makes me out to be this bandit -- whatever that guy’s name is in Public Enemies... John Dillinger. It made me be like I was him. It’s very frustrating, because I know what happened, and what didn’t happen. All you can do is pray and move forward. That’s what I’ve been doing my whole life when something happens." Twitter

Aaron Kiviat, Attorney for Terrence Williams: “No criminal charges were filed against Terrence Williams yesterday. We have presented to the prosecution statements from impartial witnesses that support Mr Williams’ contention that he was in fear for his safety and only acting in self defense. Although this is still an ongoing investigation, Terrence is very much looking forward to getting back to focusing his time and energy on his family and career.” GoodwinSports.com

King County prosecutors said they need more time to review the allegations against NBA player Terrence Williams, who was arrested Sunday after the mother of his 10-year-old son told police he had flashed a handgun at her. “There’s an ongoing investigation and a charging decision will be made at a later date,” Dan Donohoe, a spokesman for the prosecuting attorney’s office, said today. Today was the deadline for prosecutors to file a second-degree assault charge against Williams, a former Rainier Beach High School star. Seattle Times

This year’s field, which may actually feature a number of solid role players if not franchise changers, is particularly fluid. Ainge will draft the best player available instead of attempting to fill a need. He could use a rebounder, scorer and even a backup point guard — that last position a concern now that Terrence Williams is in legal trouble, thus clouding his Celtics future. Boston Herald

A legal expert said the potential charges facing Boston Celtics guard Terrence Williams, who is being investigated for second-degree domestic assault following a Sunday altercation in Kent, Wa., could be decided in the next week. Bellingham, Wa., attorney Jeffrey A. Lustick, who has no personal involvement in the case, offered insight into it during a telephone interview with MassLive.com on Tuesday. Williams, 25, is under investigation for second-degree domestic assault after admitting he brandished a gun Sunday during an argument with the mother of his 10-year-old son. A second hearing is scheduled for Wednesday after Monday's initial hearing. Booth Newspapers
