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

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

To say Williams had a childhood would be using the term loosely. He grew up fast, faster than he should have had to, but he faced circumstances that left him with no choice but to become the man of the house at an early age. Williams uses the word “father” very specifically. He has no memories of Edgar, who served time in prison and was murdered the day he was released. Williams was only a child. “I don't remember anything,” Williams said. “The only image I really have is when he was in jail and I was taking him some shoes with my mom for him to have. I can't tell you any stories of, 'Oh I remember this one time playing at the park.' I've always in the past tried to remember – it’s the hardest thing to do. You can't have a memory of something that you don't think ever happened. So to me, I didn't have a father. I had a dad, I had somebody that birthed me. But it's just blank.” CSNNE.com

Williams never asked his relatives about his father. He says he doesn’t want to know. “To me, I had a mother. My mother had me on her own,” he said. “I don't have one memory of my father and the only thing I know of is from pictures. I never asked stories from my mom, I never asked stories from my uncles on his side of the family. I don't want to know stories. I was forced to grow up fast, so it is what it is. I never had a father, I had a dad. I call my college coach more of my father than my real father." CSNNE.com
