NBA Rumors: Jason Williams to make comeback? Should Warriors be interested?

The Golden State Warriors are involved in a lot of NBA rumors after signing Kevin Durant this summer. The 2015 champions and 2016 finalists still need cheap players in the free agent market to complete their team next season.

One possible target for the Warriors is veteran point guard Jason Williams, who has retired from the league years ago but showed he still has game left in a recent video highlights.

Known for his passing, a 40-year-old Jason Williams might still have enough to play the back-up role with the Warriors on limited minutes.

Williams played for the Sacramento Kings (1998 to 2001), Memphis Grizzlies (2001 to 2005), Miami Heat (2005 to 2008) and Orlando Magic (2009 to 2011). He was a starter for the Heat squad that won the championship in 2006.

Golden State lost back-up veteran PG Leandro Barbosa to the Phoenix Suns in 2016 free agency. The Warriors re-signed young back-up Ian Clark earlier this month but adding a third point guard will not be a bad idea for Golden State.

It’s farfetched that the NBA rumors of a Jason Williams return to the league will happen, but if the Warriors want to add more excitement to their team, then signing J-Dub to a minimum deal will be an option.
