The Charlotte Bobcats have won the Reggie Williams sweepstakes, landing the wing on a two-year, $5 million contract, according to Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski. Williams had begun the free agent period with restricted status, meaning that the Golden State Warriors could match any offer sheet signed by the scorer. But the Warriors rescinded that offer sheet on Sunday to make room for a huge offer to restricted free agent DeAndre Jordan.
The Clippers ended up matching the Jordan offer, meaning that the Warriors had given up matching rights on Williams for no good reason. That could also mean that Golden State had little intention of keeping Williams; their loss is Charlotte's gain. The scoring-starved Bobcats will be getting a lovely shooter, as Williams finished No. 9 in three-point percentage last season (42 percent) while taking three per game. He's averaged better than 16 points per 36 minutes in a year and change of play with well above-average efficiency.
