Three things stand out here. First Williams wants to be a pass first PG and be a coach on the floor. I think he has the BB IQ to do it. Second Doc says he can run the pick and roll. We very much need a PG who can do so. Third Doc, without naming names said that there are a few players from this group with a good chance of making the team. Since we don't need that many players right now, does this mean that we are trading some of ours? Everything I have heard about Jay Williams has been very good. I would love to have Danny sign him. I think he would be good for this team. He has learned a lot from his ordeal and would be a good role model for the kids and he would be a good veteran PG to lead the team on the court.

WALTHAM - Three years ago today, Jay Williams almost lost his life, could have lost his leg, and may have lost his career, when he crashed his new motorcycle into a pole in Chicago.
Jay Williams heads for the hoop during free agent workouts in Waltham Monday. Now he's trying to reclaim his NBA career, barnstorming around the country's NBA franchises on a workout tour that's already brought him to Philadelphia, Toronto, New Jersey, Memphis and Phoenix. Monday, he took part in the first day of a two-day free agent camp at The Sports Authority Training Center at HealthPoint as he attempted to demonstrate to the Celtics brass that he has what it takes to resurrect his career.
