Wolves: Big decision on Williams coming soon


The Timberwolves have a big decision to make about Derrick Williams by Halloween.

Minnesota has until October 31 to pick up the fourth-year player option on Williams' contract.

The option is worth $6.3 million. Is Williams and his 12.5 points and 5.5 rebounds per game worth that kind of money?

It's up to team management, and owner Glen Taylor tells Darren Wolfson that Williams is "looking good" at summer camp, and they'll continue to evaluate him before making a decision.

Pro Basketball Talk questions Williams' fit in the Wolves' lineup. The big question is: Is there any room for a power forward like Williams on a team with Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic using the majority of the minutes in the paint?
