Veteran guard Jason Williams reportedly signs with Memphis. 
Posted by Matt Moore

White Chocolate is back in River City. 

The Memphis Commercial-Appeal reports that Jason Williams has reached an agreement in principle with the Memphis Grizzlies. Williams will join a wretchedly thin backcourt with O.J. Mayo on suspension, and should immediately compete for the backup point guard position behind Mike Conley. Greivis Vasquez has had a handful of solid games, a few great games, and a whole lot of bags-of-vomit games. Williams should get considerable time as a veteran in Lionel Hollins' rotations, especially considering the owner upstairs Michael Heisley is big on him. 
What's interesting is how it is he came to be a Grizzly. From the Commercial-Appeal

Memphis wanted to claim Williams off waivers before he became an unrestricted free agent last weekend. Williams asked the Grizzlies to pass apparently because of his doubts about playing at all.Williams is now said to want to play beyond this season.

"Well, I'm not sure if I ever want to play again, but, okay." Congratulations Memphis, you were his first choice, just before "retire, again."

Grizzlies reach agreement with Jason Williams

Is that really J Will or is it Steve O? Either way, anyone who takes another chance on a guy who has lost his passion and just wants to get paid, is a Jackass!

Grizzlies reach agreement with Jason Williams

i agree the "whole lot of bag of vomit" is a bit much but its somewhat true. some games he just looks like hes out of his element. hes shooting around 36% right now also, which is a bit too low for my liking

Grizzlies reach agreement with Jason Williams

Vazquez has been very solid, I don't know where the "whole lot of bag of vomit" comment came from. But why do I expect Matt Moore of all imbecils to know what he's talking about. He's an idiot.

But back to the subject at hand, Michael Heisley is one guy who can rival Matt Moore's idiocy, which is quite a feat. There is absolutely no reason to make this deal with J-Will. The Grizzlies are just fine with Greivis Vazquez backing up Conley. Chemistry wise, there is plenty of good momentum for Wiliams to ruin as well. Memphis is playing great, and they are unified. Thanks a lot Heisley. What your team really needed was somebody who coud come in and knock down threes. Not some more of what you already have (a good distributer in Vazquez) plus the unwanted, unneeded baggage. This is why you are laughed at Mr. Heisley. You are an idiot of Matt Moore proportions.
