Charlotte Bobcats Keeping Close Eye on Reggie Williams

+Read full article

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

Reggie Williams obviously did not like his production from an injury-riddled 2012-13 season and will bid for some more success next season. If that happens, the Charlotte Bobcats should show more improvement than they thought was possible.

His knee threatens what was once a very bright future for Williams. He’s hoping there will be a bright future. Last season, he only contributed 3.6 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game from his guard spot. He made his debut in 2009-10 with the Golden State Warriors and in 24 games, averaged 15.2 points and 4.6 rebounds. The following year,  he saw action in more games, but less minutes per game and was at 9.8 points and 2.7 rebounds per game. With Charlotte in 33 games last season and 13 starts, he was at 8.3 points, 2.87 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. His shooting has been consistent during his career at 46 percent from the floor, 37.1 percent from the three-point arc and 74.3 percent from the free-throw line.

Staying healthy is the No. 1 objective before reaching all other goals for all NBA players. Williams started out so well in the NBA but has been on a bumpy ride since then.

Some very important roster decisions are coming up for Charlotte, especially for whomever the franchise picks as its new coach. Williams was a backup for Michael Kidd-Gilchrist parts of last season and the Bobcats wouldn’t mind having someone who pushes Kidd-Gilchrist for more playing time.

The Bobcats want productive players. But they want productive players they can depend on all season. Williams has plenty to offer Charlotte. But staying healthy is critical.

Hornets Inexplicably Allow Durant Free Dunk

While I understand that Oklahoma City Thunder SF Kevin Durant is physically intimidating when driving the lane, the Charlotte Hornets should be ashamed of themselves for the defensive effort they put forth during this play. I mean, they didn't even try. The Hornets have made some solid strides this season, but boneheaded mental collapses like this will prevent them from continuing to build momentum.
