Kings shopping Derrick Williams? bit.ly/1hKUSdo

Lang Greene

Derrick Williams, Jan Vesely, Bismack Biyombo and Jimmer Fredette were all drafted ahead of Klay Thompson in 2011.

Howard Beck

Players drafted ahead of Klay Thompson: Derrick Williams, Tristan Thompson, Jan Vesely, Bismack Biyombo, Kemba Walker, Jimmer Fredette.

Ailene Voisin

Not sure why Derrick Williams started at power forward instead of Kason Thompson. JT hasn't made an appearance.

Jason Jones

The Derrick Williams experiment is already over for now .. Quincy Miller is in. Stauskas is in for McLemore.

Jason Jones

Derrick Williams got the start over JT to matchup with the Warriors ... ICYMI

Rusty Simmons

Derrick Williams' free throw snaps the Kings' 3:03 scoreless streak. The Warriors used the stretch to go on a 16-0 run.

James Ham

Derrick Williams replacing Jason Thompson in the Kings starting lineup tonight. Interesting. Not sure how that will work out.

James Ham

Derrick Williams with a horrible shot, followed by olé defense by Sessions. Kings trail 86-69.

Bill Herenda

81-69 on a Derrick Williams alley pop dunk via McLemore assist has @SleepTrainArena crowd up #Kings v #Nets #NBA #SacKings

Mike Richman

Derrick Williams wanted none of it. RT @danecarbaugh: Damian Lillard just absolutely packed it. vine.co/v/OjlQnwlUWgM

Tom Ziller

ahaha Derrick Williams saw what he did to the Lakers and was like "nah" in a 1-point game in the final minute.

Erik Gundersen

Dorell Wright in the game presumably to match-up with Derrick Williams.

Ben Bolch

Quite a sequence for DeAndre Jordan with swat of Derrick Williams and dunk on the other end.

Sean Cunningham

Derrick Williams and Ryan Hollins replace DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay in the starting lineup #NBAKings

James Ham

From @mrruithomas this morning: Derrick Williams a fan of Kings’ uptempo offense shar.es/1bvhe2

Jason Jones

Derrick Williams starts for Gay, his second start of the season.

Jason Jackson

My on air speculation about Rudy Gay’s replacement was correct … Derrick Williams joins Thompson, Cousins, McLemore and Collison #HEATLive

Sean Cunningham

Kings start Derrick Williams in place of Rudy Gay. Heat: Luol Deng, Chris Bosh, Hassan Whiteside, Mario Chalmers and Shabazz Napier.

James Ham

For those asking, pretty sure Derrick Williams gets the start tonight for the Kings with Rudy Gay out. Casspi has missed a ton of time.

Jeff Wade

Wow, Derrick Williams poopshit is being commissioned for an exhibit...who saw that coming?

Sean Cunningham

Hell of a defensive play right there for Darren Collison, leads to a Derrick Williams jam on the other end. Exciting sequences here in 4th

Earl K. Sneed

What a block by Tyson Chandler?! But Derrick Williams comes right back with a jam. Mavs down 10, 95-85. #DALatSAC

Jason Jones

Derrick Williams gets a poster with Dirk in it!!!

Jason Jones

Cousins looked real tired until he led a break and got an assist with a lob to Derrick Williams. Kings up 76-74, 3:51 left in the third.

Blake Ellington

Cousins runs the break…tosses up an alley-oop for Derrick Williams. #PassFirstPG

Jason Jones

Derrick Williams starts the second half at small forward for Rudy Gay.

James Ham

Rudy Gya came up limping with a little under two minutes remaining in the first quarter. Expect a heavy dose of Derrick Williams at the 3.

James Ham

Derrick Williams didn’t even try to play defense on the breakaway. That’s the second time in about 3 minutes he’s done that.

Bill Herenda

#Kings hanging around down 78-77 Rudy Gay & Derrick Williams heating up but Jennings drive and one makes it 81-77 under :30 to go Q3 #NBA

Bill Herenda

Derrick Williams with continuuuuuuuuation #Kings down 74-66 to #Pistons #NBA @CSNAuthentic @CSNKings #SacKings #KingsTalk

Tom Ziller

Derrick Williams is a future Chinese league MVP. Happy trails, man.

David Mayo

#Kings go with Jason Thompson instead of Derrick Williams to match up with biggter #Pistons at PF.

Rudy Gay

First win of the new year! @DeMarcus Cousins benmclemore omricasspi18 @derr13k #beGr8 instagram.com/p/xVoeQio43-/

James Ham

Derrick Williams airballs a 3-pointer with 6 seconds on the shot clock and the Kings leading by 4 in the final 20 seconds. That happened.

Sean Cunningham

Rudy Gay's 8 turnovers tonight are a career-high. Derrick Williams is 1 point from his season-high 18 points #NBAKings

James Ham

Derrick Williams with a HUGE corner 3-ball.

Bill Herenda

Derrick Williams 3 puts #Kings up 69-66 on #Timberwolves DWill 14 pts 5-6 FGs 2-3 #FGs #NBA #SacKings #KingsTalk @CSNAuthentic

I think everytime Derrick Williams scores, the crowd here gets angrier

James Ham

Wiggins is eating Derrick Williams up in the second quarter.

Sean Cunningham

Derrick Williams was really active on both ends in the opening quarter. 7pts and 2 steals. Gets first start of the season.

Jason Jones

Derrick Williams already has 7 points ... the Minnesota Factor ....

James Ham

Great passing so far for the Kings. 19-7 lead. Derrick Williams with 7. Kings 7-of-9 from the field.

Jon Krawczynski

Derrick Williams with 7 quick points. Boogie doing whatever the heck he wants down low. #Kings 19-7 midway thru 1st over #Twolves

Jason Jones

Derrick Williams usually plays well against Minnesota ... we'll see if that happens again tonight.

James Ham

Sacramento Kings starting lineup: Darren Collison, Ben McLemore, Rudy Gay, Derrick Williams and DeMarcus Cousins.

Sean Cunningham

Looks like Derrick Williams gets the start tonight at PF, in his return to Minneapolis. Ryan Hollins returns to bench #NBAKings

Jason Jones

Change to the starters. Derrick Williams now listed as a starter, not Hollins.
