With two starters expected to miss at least the next five games (Monta Ellis and Andris Biedrins), the Warriors signed Reggie Williams to a 10-day contract.
Williams plays for the Sioux Falls Skyforce in the NBDL. Here’s what you need to know about him:
Size: 6-foot-6, 210 pounds
Season stats: 26.4 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.55 steals, 40 minutes
Percentages: .576 FG, .410 3P, .824 FT
Notable: Leads the NBDL in scoring this season … Averaged 27.8 points and 9.8 rebounds in his senior season at Virginia Military Institute in 2007.
Here’s an excerpt from the report, which was written in January:
Williams hardly dawdled with the ball, rarely taking more than a dribble or two on catches out top or on the wings before dishing off and attacking. On several occasions, when he began to drive but saw a second defender approaching, he dropped the ball off to cutting bigs in the lane and on the blocks or kicked out to teammates ready to catch and shoot on the perimeter. Williams threw exactly one pass off target on the evening, a lob from the left wing to the right baseline that a teammate saved from going out of bounds. That was the closest he came to a turnover for the game.
The report also mentions his scoring ability, but I was more intrigued by this description of his playmaking ability.
