Williams to part ways with Valencia

According to, Shammond Williams(1.89-PG) will soon be leaving Valencia. The article says that coach Neven Spahija is not happy with the american point-guard and although he's got one more season in his contract with Valencia his agent has already been informed to start looking for a new team.

If Williams claims his entire contract, that comes to one million euros for next season it might be difficult for Valencia to sign another point-guard for the starting five-line up. Williams, who is currently 34 years old and holds a georgian passport averaged 9.9 points 3.6 assists and 2.3 rebounds in 30 games of the ACB as a player of Valencia. 

Williams has had a long career in the NBA with Atlanta, Seattle, Boston, Denver, Orlando, New Orleans and Los Angeles. In Europe he has played for Unics Kazan, Barcelona and in the last 2 seasons he has played for Valencia. The article also says that the best option for Williams given his EU passport is to look for a team in Italy.
