Hornets Swarm Around Marvin Williams, Is He Fantasy Relevant?

Marvin Williams

If you listened to my podcast last season, you’ll know how much I hated the fact that Marvin Williams was playing as a starter for the Utah Jazz. But, it’s not because I hate Marvin Williams. The reason I was so vocal about the horrible coaching of Ty Corbin, was that the Jazz weren’t developing Enes Kanter, instead pumping minutes Continue Reading →

There have been some wacky deals so far in the NBA offseason. Jodie Meeks for $19 million over three years. Ben Gordon for $9 million over two years. Channing Frye for $32 million over four years.
