Williams Gets Called Up, Plays Against Heat

March 3, 2010

Just one day after being named the NBA D-League's Player of the Month, Sioux Falls Skyforce forward Reggie Williams was rewarded with a call up to the NBA by the Golden State Warriors. Ironically enough Williams faced off against the Skyforce's affiliate in the Miami Heat. And to no surprise he had a decent showing in his NBA debut.

Ten points, five rebounds and five assists is no spectacular stat line, but for a player that was thrown into the fire like Williams it is a decent showing. Known for his prolific scoring ability in the D-League, Williams fits well into the Golden State system, which is a high octane offense that enjoys playing fast break, uptempo basketball.

The Warriors signed Williams to a 10-day contract, which allows him to earn at least $35,000 in salary and gives him the chance of being signed for the rest of the season. Given Williams success in his NBA debut and the nature of Golden State's wide-open rotation, expect Williams to stay a Warrior for the remainder of the '09-'10 season. The Warriors will not be disappointed with their call-up.
