The 31-year-old Williams played last season with the Portland Trail Blazers. In Portland, Williams averaged 9.7 points and 4.3 assists in 24.8 minutes per game. In his 11-year career, Williams has played for the Utah Jazz, Milwaukee Bucks, Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Clippers and Trail Blazers. During the 2008-09 season, while teammates with LeBron James, Williams made the Eastern Conference All-Star team.
Last season, the six-foot-one guard shot 36.9 percent from three, and he's shot 38.5 percent from beyond the arc for his career. Minnesota already has offensive-minded guards Kevin Martin and J.J. Barea on the roster, but both have been rumored to be involved in a potential Kevin Love trade.
