The Hornets are looking to re-sign Marvin Williams, sources told ESPN's Chris Broussard.
It makes plenty of sense given Williams enjoyed a breakout season that featured consistent production under Steve Clifford, and the veteran is a nice presence in the locker room for a team that is undoubtedly still growing. However, it's unclear how Williams' role could change with a healthy Michael Kidd-Gilchrist if Nicolas Batum returns as Frank Kaminsky is also in the mix for minutes at the four. Jun 27 - 1:32 PM

Marvin Williams said in his exit interview that he wants to return to Charlotte next season.

The forward is coming off a solid season with averages of 11.7 points, 6.4 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.9 3-pointers, so his price won't be cheap in free agency. "There’s no question that I want to return," Williams said. "Obviously anything can happen in free agency. It’s basketball and there is a business side as well, but I will let it be known right now that I do want to return and play with these guys. I want to play for Coach [Steve Clifford] again."

Marvin Williams, who will become an unrestricted free agent, made it clear that he wants to remain with the Hornets.

"There's no question," Williams said. "I want to return. I'll let it be known right now this is the most fun I've had in a season." The veteran enjoyed a year in which he finally found consistency under Steve Clifford, averaging 11.7 points while posting career-high marks in rebounds (6.4), blocks (1.0), 3-pointers made (1.9) and 3-point percentage (40.2).
May 2 - 11:13 AM

Hornets coach Steve Clifford said that Marvin Williams played through an elbow injury during the series against the Heat.

That explains a lot. Williams scored just five points on 1-of-3 shooting in Sunday's Game 7 loss with five rebounds in 33 minutes, and he was averaging just 5.2 points on 27.1 percent shooting in the previous six games. Williams deserves a pass for playing through the injury, but it would've been nice to get a heads up from the Hornets a lot earlier. Regardless, Williams was one of the most improved players in the NBA this season and could get a significant raise when he hits free agency this summer.
May 1 - 3:54 PM

Marvin Williams missed all seven shots from the field against the Heat on Friday with four rebounds, one assist and one steal.

After turning in his best year of his career, Williams is falling on his face in the playoffs. He's made just 27.1 percent from the field in this series as one of the most disappointing players in the postseason. He's turned in worse fantasy output on the road, so it won't be easy to trust him in DFS in Game 7.
Apr 29 - 11:17 PM

Marvin Williams found some traction in Game 5 with 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting, eight rebounds, three steals, three 3-pointers, two assists and two turnovers in 30 minutes.

The Hornets came into the playoffs as the league's fourth-leading team in 3-pointers per game, but in Games 1-4 vs. Miami they were a collective 16-of-67 from downtown. They finally found the range tonight and that was the difference in the game, as they hit 50.0 percent of their 3-pointers including a late barrage in the fourth quarter. Williams was having a nightmare series prior to this game, shooting 19.4 percent from the field, so hopefully this eruption will carry over to Friday's game in Charlotte.
Apr 27 - 10:53 PM

Marvin Williams missed all five shots from the field and didn't go to the line for a scoreless game against the Heat on Monday.

He had a nice double-double in Game 3, but he's been terrible in the other three games. In fact, Williams has made just 1-of-22 from the field and missed both free throws to give him a microscopic 4.8 true shooting percentage. The minutes are there, so he's a decent tournament option in DFS.
Apr 25 - 10:13 PM

Marvin Williams snapped out of a putrid slump during a win on Saturday, making 5-of-9 from the field for 12 points with 14 rebounds, one block and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He was 1-of-17 from the field and missed both free throws in the first two games, which gives him an unfathomably bad 5.6 true shooting percentage. However, Williams pulled down a playoff career-high 14 boards and looked better as a small forward on offense. He might be back now.
Apr 23 - 8:54 PM

Marvin Williams failed to score in 29 minutes on Wednesday, shooting 0-of-10 from the field with six rebounds, and he's now a combined 1-of-17 from the field through two playoff games.

Charlotte relied heavily on 3-point shooting this season but they were just 1-of-16 beyond the arc tonight -- it's not a coincidence that Miami allowed the third-fewest 3-point makes this season. Williams has had two nightmare games to open the playoffs and he'll need to start knocking down shots for Charlotte to erase their 2-0 series deficit.
Apr 20 - 9:58 PM

Marvin Williams shot just 1-of-7 from the field to finish Sunday's loss in Miami with two points, three rebounds, one assist and one block in 26 minutes.

Williams had an excellent regular season with averages of 11.7 points, 1.9 threes, 6.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.0 blocks per game. He was as consistent as he's been at any point in his 11-year career and should fare much better in Game 2 on Wednesday -- if not, Charlotte could find themselves facing a daunting 2-0 series deficit.
Apr 17 - 8:23 PM

Marvin Williams scored 14 points on 5-of-11 shooting Sunday, to go with six boards, three assists, two 3-pointers and two turnovers in just 21 minutes of action.

Frank Kaminsky played really well in this one, putting up a double-double off the bench, and Kaminsky's stellar play cut into Williams' minutes. It would, however, be surprising to see that develop into a trend. Williams has been a top-50 player all year long, and he's a dark horse candidate for Most Improved Player of the Year honors.
Apr 10 - 4:09 PM

Marvin Williams scored 15 points on 5-of-11 shooting Tuesday to go with six boards, one assist, three 3-pointers, two steals and zero turnovers in 31 minutes.

Williams was taken with the No. 2 overall selection in the 2005 NBA draft, and 10 seasons later, he is finally realizing his potential. He's been a steady early-round asset all year long with averages of 11.6 points, 6.6 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.9 triples, 0.7 steals and 1.0 blocks per contest on 45.0 percent shooting.
Apr 5 - 11:06 PM

Marvin Williams had another efficient game on Sunday, hitting 8-of-11 shots with four 3-pointers for 22 points, six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block.

Williams' career season is going strong for the playoff-bound Hornets, and he's set himself up for a big payday in free agency this summer. He logged 38 minutes tonight, due partly to Nicolas Batum's early exit with a strained knee, but he's a must-start player whether or not Batum suits up on Tuesday.
Apr 3 - 6:19 PM

Marvin Williams hit just 3-of-10 shots for eight points and nine rebounds in 31 minutes on Tuesday.

He was 0-for-4 from downtown and didn't have a steal or a block tonight. He's been really solid all season, but just never got it going against the league's worst team tonight.
Mar 29 - 9:37 PM

Marvin Williams scored 21 points with eight boards, one assist, three blocks and four steals vs. the Bucks on Saturday.

This was a nice bounce-back performance after he was held to seven points, two rebounds, two assists and no turnovers in 22 minutes on Friday, so his owners should be relieved if they stuck with him. Williams is one of the most improved players in the NBA and should be locked into all lineups. He was 8-of-12 from the field and played 34 minutes, so his ankle shouldn't be an issue moving forward.
