Terrence Williams Released By Pistons

The Detroit Pistons announced Monday that they have released former Louisville star Terrence Williams.

Williams, who signed a non-guaranteed contract with the Pistons in Sept., averaged just 2.5 points and 4.0 rebounds in two preseason games for Detroit.

Though nothing is set in stone, it certainly appears as though this may be it for T-Will in the NBA, at least for the time being. There have been substantial murmurs over the past 24 hours that his next move will be to China.

It has been a fairly rapid fall from grace for Williams, who was the 11th overall selection in the 2009 NBA Draft.

Williams showed signs of being able to have a sustained career in the league when he averaged 8.4 points for New Jersey in his rookie season. He clashed with the Nets coaching staff in his second year, however, and was eventually sent down to the D League as punishment for being consistently late to team meetings and practices. He played in just 11 games that season.

T-Will was given opportunities for fresh starts in both Houston and Sacramento, and though he put up decent numbers despite sporadic playing time over the past two seasons, the attitude issues have still followed him around.

Best of luck to Terrence in whatever his next move is.
