Roy Williams Rumors
Jonathan Feigen: Rockets guard James Harden upgraded to questionable to play against the Timberwolves on Thursday. Nene, Zhou Qi, Troy Williams, too. Rockets 4-3 in games without Harden.
Mark Berman: #Rockets announced Troy Williams and Zhou Qi were called up from the G League. So is guard Briante Weber. Because he’s on a 2-way contract Briante was not part of the announcement but he’s here and ready “to be me.”
Jonathan Feigen: Rockets waive Isaiah Taylor, Tim Quarterman, George de Paula, Chris Johnson. Troy Williams, Nanu Onuaku, as expected, make roster.
Former North Carolina men’s basketball star Rashad McCants says he has no relationship with UNC or coach Roy Williams – and that isn’t likely to change anytime soon. In 2014, McCants alleged that the university kept him eligible through fake classes and minimal attendance, and he said his former coach was complicit with the scheme. Williams has denied any knowledge of wrongdoing, but McCants has stuck to his claims. “The things he’s done and said and denied, I just can’t respect,” said McCants, who played for Williams for two seasons. “As a coach, he’s a great coach, and he’s deserving of the Hall of Fame and everything that’s coming to him. But as a man, I don’t have anything to say.”
