Derrick Williams, Knicks Agree to Two-Year Deal

According to Chris Broussard of ESPN, former second overall pick, Derrick Williams, has agreed to a two-year deal with New York worth $10 million. The second year of the deal is a player option.

Williams, a combo forward, was selected second overall in 2011 by the Minnesota Timberwolves. He played three years with the Timberwolves before being dealt to the Sacramento Kings a month into the 2013-14 season.

The University of Arizona Product played 74 games last season, six in which he started, and posted 8.3 points per game and 2.7 rebounds per game while shooting 45% from the field and 31% from long range.

Williams will bring plenty of athleticism to New York. He is a decent perimeter defender and the 24-year-old has ability to catch fire. He definitely played well down the stretch for the Kings with George Karl at the helm.

Here are some of his highlights;
