Sacramento Kings work out Terrence Williams for the second time

Cary Emondson-US PRESSWIRE

In a sign that the Kings still aren't satisfied with their wing depth, Real GM's Shams Charania is reporting that the Kings have brought in free agent Terrence Williams for another workout.  The Kings had previously worked out Williams back in late July along with several other wings including Dahntay Jones, Jamario Moon and Mickael Pietrus.  After cutting Trey Johnson this past weekend, the Kings are one of the few teams in the league with an available roster spot.

Williams had one previous stint with the Kings back in 2011-12 season for 18 games in which he averaged 8.8 points, 4.1 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 0.9 steals.  Drafted in the lottery by the then New Jersey Nets, talent was never an issue with Williams.  However there's a reason he's been out of the league since the 2012-13 season and it's also the reason the Kings didn't bring him back despite the relative success he had in Sacramento.  Now aged 27, the likelihood of him becoming a real NBA contributor at this point seems slim.

We'll see if anything comes of this, but regardless, the Kings do seem to still be searching for more depth.  Personally, I'd prefer they look elsewhere.
