The Philadelphia 76ers are ready to offer former Gopher Rodney Williams a contract.
ESPN says Williams is set to sign a multi-year, partially guaranteed contract with the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday, Williams' agent tells 1500ESPN.com.
HoopsRumors reports that Williams won't necessarily have an inside track to a roster spot. Still, Philadelphia's camp is expected to be fairly wide open, which should give the 22-year-old a chance to earn a spot on the regular season roster. The club only has nine guaranteed contracts on its books for now.
Williams was picked up by the 76ers in June after going undrafted.
Williams recorded 8.0 PPG and 1.2 RPG in five contests for Philadelphia's Summer League squad. He is the 25th on the Gophers' all-time scorers list.
