Corliss Williamson will stay on as an assistant coach with the Kings.
New head coach Dave Joerger is trying to hire both Elston Turner and Bryan Gates as assistants and hopes to add both to holdovers Willamson and Nancy Lieberman, who were both on George Karl's staff. Williamson was thought to be in line for the Kings head coaching position if Karl was fired, but will have to settle for a familiar assistant position in Sacramento. Tue, May 24, 2016 09:52:00 AM

Corliss Williamson is reportedly in line to be the Kings head coach when George Karl is fired.

Karl's impending firing is basketball's worst-kept secret and the Big Nasty is the logical choice to step in as interim head coach. This move could be great for fantasy owners as Karl has struggled to motivate the Kings roster and there's a good chance that Williamson could boost the fantasy values of players like DeMarcus Cousins, Rudy Gay, and Rajon Rondo a bit.

Corliss Williamson announced that he will be returning to the Kings to be an assistant coach.

The Big Nasty retired from the NBA as a King back in 2007 and will leave his post as the head coach of Central Arkansas. Williamson scored 23 points in the 1994 NCAA Championship Game to beat Duke.

Corliss Williamson announced on Tuesday that he is retiring from the NBA.

The loss of 'Big Nasty' will help clear up some of the logjam at power forward in Sacramento, although they still have Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Kenny Thomas and Mikki Moore around to fight for minutes.

Corliss Williamson is listed as day-to-day because of his heel injury, but he's thinking of packing it in for the year.

"As far as making it to the playoffs, (the games) don't matter, but you definitely want to finish on a high note," the Big Nasty said. "All that being said, the smart thing would be to rest rather than force the issue." If Williamson is indeed finished, he has enjoyed a solid comeback this year, pacing all Sacramento reserves with 9.1 PPG, and shooting 51 percent from the field, tying a career high. The impending free agent will likely garner interest this summer after proving he can still play.

Corliss Williamson sat out Tuesday with a heel injury.

He's missed five of his last six games with the injury and Justin Williams had his first double-double in Williamson's absence last night.

Corliss Williamson returned from a heel injury on Friday.

He had nine points and three boards in 20 minutes and isn't a fantasy option.

Corliss Williamson (heel) did not travel with the team for Wednesday night's game at Denver.

Williamson has missed the previous two games with the injury and remains out indefinitely. With Kenny Thomas out for the year now, Shareef Abdur-Rahim and John Salmons will get more minutes as Sactown is forced to play small-ball.

Corliss Williamson missed his second straight game for the Kings with a sore right heel.

The valuable reserve is considered day-to-day.

Corliss Williamson (sore right heel) did not play on Sunday.

He had been fairly productive over his last four games, but still is too inconsistent to use when healthy. Big Nasty's status for Tuesday is uncertain.
Mon, Apr 2, 2007 12:05:00 PM

Corliss Williamson (12 points, two rebounds) played for 23 minutes off the bench on Thursday.

Neither Brad Miller (foot) nor Kenny Thomas (toe) played, but Williamson was still passed in the starting lineup by John Salmons and Francisco Garcia. "Big Nasty" doesn't have much value right now despite the injuries.

Corliss Williamson started at power forward on Wednesday in the absence of Brad Miller (plantar fasciitis) and had 17 points and 10 boards in a loss to the Timberwolves.

Williamson is intriguing, but may not have much value if Brad Miller and Kenny Thomas return from their injuries.
Thu, Mar 22, 2007 12:46:00 AM

Corliss Williamson came alive on Thursday, scoring 21 points with a steal and a block in a loss to the Spurs.

Though he looked sharp while making nine of his 13 shots and intermittently has these type of games, Williamson is used far too inconsistently to be a fantasy option.

Corliss Williamson helped make up for the loss of Brad Miller and Kenny Thomas for the Kings, going for 20 points and 11 boards on 8-of-14 shooting in a loss to the Sonics on Sunday.

Big Nasty could have some value if Miller and Thomas are going to miss much time, but he's a long shot as far as fantasy starters go.
Mon, Feb 12, 2007 12:15:00 AM

Corliss Williamson had 20 points and two rebounds in Saturday's loss to the Mavericks.

Williamson, Kenny Thomas and Shareef Abdur-Rahim will cancel out each other's value on most nights, so don't get too excited about Big Nasty's scoring tonight. He seems to have one nice game per week.
