Spurs give a draft promise to Williams?


As the 2010 NBA Draft nears, the San Antonio Spurs have been working out players at a fever pitch.  One player they worked out was Memphis’ Elliot Williams.  It was during this work out where Williams suffered a knee injury and has dropped out of sight and has ignored other invitations from other NBA teams for a work out.

However, according to the commercialappeal.com, some speculate the Spurs have given Williams a promise to draft him if he is still available at the 20th pick when the Spurs draft:

Some have speculated that Williams received a promise from the Spurs that they would use the No. 20 pick on him if he’s still available. Others wonder if Williams is perhaps more injured than he’s letting on, though those in direct contact with the Williams camp insist he’s fine …

Williams is a 6’4″ shooting guard who averaged 17.9 points, 3.8 assists, shot 45.9% from the field and 36.6% from the three-point line.
