It wasn’t that long ago that a few of us, myself included, were very intrigued by the possibility of Terrence Williams backing up Rajon Rondo. Then, in May, TWill got himself caught up in a bit of a mess that involved accusations of pulling a gun on the mother of his child.
I spoke to his attorney Aaron Kiviat today, and he told me that King County Prosecutors have decided not to pursue the case.
In a statement, his attorney said the following:
Terrence feels grateful for the diligent and thorough investigation that the King County Prosecutors Office and the Kent Police Department conducted in this matter.
Terrence was confident from the beginning that he had acted in self-defense, and is vindicated in knowing that law enforcement felt the same way after reviewing all of the evidence presented to them.
Williams was waived in June, and hasn’t received any offers as of yet from any other teams. It’s entirely possible he would have been waived regardless of his legal issues when you consider the financial tight rope the Celtics are walking as they try to avoid the luxury tax.
We’ll see how things work out for TWill moving forward. He certainly showed enough promise with the C’s that a camp invitation somewhere isn’t out of the question.
