The Brooklyn Nets are considering picking up Terrence Williams in next week's D-League waiver wire process, team sources told The Brooklyn Game. The Nets, then in New Jersey, drafted the mercurial Williams with the 11th pick in the 2009 NBA Draft. He mixed moments of electric passing and athleticism with poor on-court decision-making, eventually getting demoted to the D-League for missing practices and general misconduct. He did not enjoy his time in New Jersey. The Brooklyn Game

According to a source, Terrence Williams is officially available in the NBA D-League player pool. The former Boston Celtics guard is talented enough that one of the top three teams on the waiver wire will likely claim him, but a team lower on the waiver wire (i.e. Maine) could offer one of the teams a deal they can’t refuse in order to get Williams.

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
