According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, the Charlotte Bobcats have signed former Golden State Warriors swingman Reggie Williams to a 2-year deal worth 5 million dollars. The 25-year old former D-league player averaged 9.2 points on 46.9% shooting from the field and 42.3% shooting from deep last season, and averaged 15.2 points on 49.5% shooting in his first NBA season. Williams’ defense has been an issue, but he was playing in Golden State, where defense was not a priority.

Given how much mid-level free agents in their 20s or early 30s can cost, this looks like a smart signing for Charlotte. Williams can create shots and knock down open threes quite well, he’s versatile offensively, and his price tag looks very reasonable when you consider that his former team just paid $7 million for one year of Kwame Brown, or look at what other reasonably effective free-agent swingmen around the league have been getting paid.

Williams won’t make a game-changing impact for Charlotte, but they appear to have acquired a solid player without having to pay too much, which is a very rare thing in NBA free agency.

    Clown all you want but thats actually a steal of a deal. Williams is a good player and the only reason his #s dipped from year 1 to year 2 is he didn’t get to start and get good minutes due to a healthy, unsuspended Ellis and the “emergence” of Dorell Wright. I can see him being a #2/3 option for Charlotte.
    But that’s only because that teams roster is one of the worst I’ve ever seen in my life. No exagerration. They’ll be fighting with Cleveland for the NBAs top bottom feeder.
