Williams, 27, carries an NBA experience of six seasons and 436 games with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Sacramento Kings, New York Knicks, Miami Heat and the Cleveland Cavaliers, with which he reached the 2017 Finals. He also had a brief stint with the L.A. Lakers last season.

After spending the first months of the previous season without a team, Williams signed with the Tianjin Gold Lions, before joining the Lakers on a 10-day contract.
