Default Marcus Williams is NOT a Pacer

No, not the laptop stealing accomplice of AJ Price.

The Indiana Pacers are expected to sign Austin Toros standout Marcus Williams for the rest of the season, according to sources close to the situation.
Williams, a 6-foot-7 guard, averaged 24.3 points, 5.4 rebounds and 4.8 assists in eight games for the Austin Toros this season after beginning the year playing in China.
Williams is probably the D-League blogosphere's favorite NBA prospect just because he's so versatile with the additions he's made to his game since he was at Arizona where he was just a gifted scorer with an attitude problem. Don't worry, though - things have changed.
He was drafted by the Spurs in the second round of the 2007 draft, but didn't make the team and ended up with the Spurs D-League affiliate, the Austin Toros, where he's been developing ever since. While he's become more of a leader, rounded out his scoring to include a more consistent jump shot and is better on the defensive end, his developing point guard skills is what has me most intrigued.

Sure, the timing is odd, but it at least gives me another reason (the first being MCBOB!) to watch the last few games. Seems like a legit prospect with some unique skills. The only thing I remember from his time at Arizona was literally just him being there. This guy also makes our first ever use of the D-League. The rest of this year is guaranteed I'm sure, then next year unguaranteed, that way they can put him on the summer league squad and see if they've got anything.

He turned them down. Good move by him not to get locked up. It's an interesting development in a development league. Call up crazy players limit themselves.
