The Los Angeles Clippers today signed free agent guard Jason Williams, according to Vice President of Basketball Operations Elgin Baylor. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not announced.
A veteran of 10 NBA seasons, Williams joins the Clippers after playing the last three years for Miami, where he helped the Heat to the 2006 NBA Championship. Williams, 32, has played in 679 career regular season games and averaged 11.4 points, 6.3 assists and 2.4 rebounds for a total of three teams. The six-foot-one, 180 pound point guard has also started and played in 53 career playoff contests, averaging 9.8 points, 3.7 assists, 2.2 rebounds and 0.9 steals.
今年32歲的白小子打了10年球季, 換過三支球隊, 在邁阿密拿過冠軍,
在679場的季賽中, 平均有11.4分6.3助攻2.4籃板的成績, 這6呎1吋180磅重的控衛在53場的季後賽中則有平均9.8分, 3.7助攻, 2.2籃板跟0.9抄截的表現.
“Jason is an experienced and proven player,” Baylor said. “He is a terrific ball handler with great passing ability and court vision.”
"這傢伙有經驗啦" 貝勒爺說, "球運的跟什麼一樣, 傳球也很讚, 還有很棒的視野."
Playing alongside new Clippers teammate Ricky Davis with the Heat last season, Williams averaged 8.8 points, 1.9 rebounds and 4.6 assists in 28.1 minutes while appearing in 67 games. The West Virginia native finished eighth in the league with a 3.37 assists per turnover ratio and 12th with a 0.91 steals per turnover ratio.
山水有相逢, 來自於維吉尼亞地區的威爺跟上一季的熱火隊友哈拉猛男秀成員Ricky Davis將再洛城再次碰頭, 上季的表現是8.8分1.9籃板與4.6助攻, 每場上場平均28分鐘, 有著3.37的助攻失誤比.
“We are excited to add Jason to our squad,” Clippers head coach Mike Dunleavy said. “He brings added veteran leadership and playoff experience to our backcourt.”
Drafted by the Sacramento Kings in 1998 following his junior year at the University of Florida, Williams was named to the 1999 NBA All-Rookie Team following an electrifying first season that saw him average 12.8 points and 6.0 assists. Over the next nine seasons, Williams has emerged as one of the most dependable point guards in the NBA, averaging double-figures in scoring and at least five assists per game in eight of his ten years in the league.
98年被沙加緬度選進來的威爺來自於佛羅里達大學, 也是99年薪人第一隊, 這九季以來, 他可說是名表現穩定的後衛, 維持著雙位數字的得分與至少五個的平均助攻.
Williams moved to Memphis for the 2001-02 season and over the next four seasons became the Grizzlies all-time assists leader and all-time leader in three-point field goals attempted. Williams joined Miami prior to the 2005-06 season that ended with an NBA Championship.
The Clippers new-look roster now stands at 14 players as Los Angeles has revamped its roster by adding a total of 10 new faces for the 2008-09 season.
