10th season

The Jazz selected Williams as the 47th pick in the 2003 NBA draft, but he only stayed in Utah one season before Kevin O'Connor and the Jazz front office traded him to Milwaukee. O'Connor has since said many times trading Williams away in 2003 was one of the worst mistakes of his career as a General Manager.

In 2007-08, Williams had his best statistical season, posting 12.3 points and 5.3 assists per game.

High: Among Williams's more inspired performances was a 43-point outing against the Kings in 2009, the same year he was picked for the All-star game.

I really appreciate all of this background information on the Jazz roster. It will help me as I am looking forward to a very successful Jazz season. Thanks for a terrific article.

I was at the game last night. For the first time in years we actually have some speed. The offense was far more than just trying to get the ball to Jefferson inside. This should really open the game quite a bit. Favors struggled quite a bit, but everyone, especially Kanter looks like they have improved their game. Hayward and Burks really looked good both offensively and defensively. Good to have Mo back and I really like Marvin and Randy as well.

So, what are the Jazz going to do about Raja Bell? Anybody out there know?

3+ million dollars seems like an awful lot of money for someone to pass out the water.
