Jason Williams Signs with Los Angeles Clippers
Word from out west is that erratic floor general Jason Williams has just inked a deal that will see him suit up for the new-look Los Angeles Clippers next season. Let’s go to the quotes.
Jason is an experienced and proven player. He is a terrific ball handler with great passing ability and court vision. – Elgin Baylor
We are excited to add Jason to our squad. He brings added veteran leadership and playoff experience to our backcourt. – Mike Dunleavy
Traditionalists will question the value of this acquisition given that Baron Davis – a fellow point guard – also joined the Clips this summer. His time sharing the court with Monta Ellis, however, showed that he’s capable of sliding to the two for stretches.
So, is Dunleavy planning to go to the small-ball, run-and-gun style of play that brought Don Nelson mixed results in Oakland? Can Jason Williams and fellow Heat-to-Clippers transfer Ricky Davis rediscover their form in Los Angeles? Will the projected White Chocolate-Boom Dizzle backcourt be a productive pairing or the worst idea since the WNBA? Let us know what you think in the comment box below.
