The Orlando Magic added some point guard depth to their roster by inking Jason Williams. Nicknamed “White Chocolate”, Williams retired last year after signing with the Los Angeles Clippers.
Obviously, Williams decided to come out of retirement and play for the Magic. The last time he played in the NBA, he averaged 8.8 points and 4.6 assists per game in the 2007-08 season with the Miami Heat. For his career, he’s averaging 11.4 points and 6.3 assists.
On the Magic, Williams will be the backup point guard behind Jameer Nelson. Nelson was an All-Star last season before injuring his shoulder. Williams’ main competition at backup point guard will be Anthony Johnson.
In November, Williams will turn 34 so he should still be young enough to contribute. His three-point shooting and ability to play the pick-and-roll should be a good fit on the Magic.
The contract is believed to be a one-year deal at the minimum.
