Pistons give Terrence Williams a shot

DETROIT (AP) — Terrence Williams has agreed to an NBA minimum, non-guaranteed contract with the Detroit Pistons.

Williams will report to Oct. 1 to Detroit’s training camp.

He was drafted No. 11 overall in the 2009 NBA draft by New Jersey, but hasn’t played up to his potential.

The

6-foot-6 Williams averaged 8.4 points in 78 games, including nine

starts, as a rookie for the Nets. They traded him to Houston during his

second season in the league after he repeatedly broke team rules and

played just 11 games. He averaged 8.8 points in 18 games last season in

Sacramento and 4.5 points over 12 games with Houston. The 25-year-old

Williams is from Seattle and was a standout for Louisville.
