Kings' head coach George Karl said Derrick Williams could be a nice fit in the triangle offense.
"Derrick is a young player — people don’t understand he’s 24,’’ Karl said of Williams. "I think he has a tremendous upside of learning. I think he’s caught between a 4 and a 3, but the triangle can be good for him. He has explosive athletic talent. He’s big, strong, can run and score. We liked him. We would’ve liked him back on our roster.’’ Karl added that the Kings wanted to retain Williams, but the Knicks offer of two-years, $10 million was simply too rich for their blood. Williams is extremely athletic, but in his four years in the league, he's never really been able to emerge as a viable asset in standard leagues. Jul 16 - 3:59 PM
