Earlier this morning, David Pick reported that the Grizzlies had agreed to a partially guaranteed deal with the small forward out of the University of Indiana.

Williams spent three years at Indiana, where he played an average of 25 minutes per game and logged per game totals of 11.3 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 1 steal. Last season, he shot decently from deep (34.7%), though he averaged just over two three point shots per game. He also graded as a good defensive player, with a defensive rating for his college career of just over 100, including a 98.4 rating last season.

After Williams went undrafted in this year's NBA Draft, he joined the Phoenix Suns for Las Vegas Summer League action and managed to put up respectable numbers. In his final three games, he averaged 20.3 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 2 steals. Overall, Williams averaged 12.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.7 steals on 54.3% from the field and 26.3% from three.

In all likelihood, Williams' deal is simply a training camp contract, but it will give Grizzlies fans someone else to watch.
