J-Will and the Grizzlies Could Reunite

The artist formerly known as White Chocolate could be making his way back to Memphis: “The Grizzlies’ bid to reunite with point guard Jason Williams got sweeter recently when the playmaker known as “White Chocolate” visited FedExForum for a workout. Williams spent Monday talking with and going through basketball drills for Griz owner Michael Heisley, general manager Chris Wallace and members of the coaching staff. The 33-year-old is an unrestricted free agent looking to sign with an NBA team after a year off.”

    I dont’ get it. So can Lebron technically ‘retire’ and then come back in basketball and be a free agent? Is that how it works?

    I think WC was bought out or waived before he “retired”

    Update: Williams’ request to be immediately reinstated to the NBA following his voluntary retirement has been denied, ESPN.com reports.
    Analysis: League bylaws state that players seeking immediate reinstatement from voluntary retirement need unanimous approval from all 30 teams. Williams’ request was denied by a vote of 24-6. Williams can return to the NBA following a 365-day period without league approval, and his agent said he plans on doing that. “We anticipated this decision,” agent Dan Tobin said. “So did Jason. But we look forward to seeing Jason back in the NBA in the 2009-10 season.”

    So he had to wait…I guess LeBron CAN just retire and come back.

    The Grizzlies are getting desperate to sell tickets.

    Jukai…if a player retires while under contract, then his “un-retirement” would leave his rights on the same team. The Clippers renounced their rights about a month ago tho…

    I could be way off base, but I dont see him having an impact on any team. Seems his game started to decline in his last years in Miami. Hes not great defensively, not a great shooter, and not as quick as he used to be.. Sure he was very entertaining to watch, but I would take a pass if I was a gm.
