Jamaal in the house

There was an old, familiar face walking around Edmundson Pavilion today — that of former Husky Jamaal Williams.
Williams said he was back in town for a few days “just chilling.”
He said he is taking a few days off before beginning play in the NBA DL. He said he has agreed to become part of a player pool where he will then be drafted, so he doesn’t yet know where he will be playing.
Williams played in France last fall but said he left there once his playing time dropped.
“They were playing me a lot in the beginning and then it just stopped,” he said.
He said he thinks he was a victim of the fact that the team had another American on its roster as well as a Croatian, which made it difficult to make sure that a certain amount of French players were always on the floor, as well.
“I don’t think they were used to having two Americans on their roster,” he said.
Williams recently played in one game for the King County Royals of the ABA, but said that was just a one-game thing, agreeing to play for a night because he was in town.
