Draft Rumors

“Like I always said, when I got drafted [by the Minnesota Timberwolves] they picked me, I didn’t pick them,” Williams said after putting up his second straight 20-plus point game with a game-high 21 points on 8-of-12 shooting as the Knicks beat the 76ers, 94-88, to improve to 3-0 in the preseason. “I chose to be here and Phil [Jackson] wanted me here and Derek [Fisher] wanted me here and as soon as I was done with the meeting I called my agent,” the 6-foot-8 Williams added. “Ten minutes after the meeting, I said I’m signing up.”
