Former Arizona goalie Brandon Williams to sign 10-day contract with Portland Trail Blazers

B-Will gets his shot.

Former Arizona Wildcats goalie Brandon williams signs a 10-day contract with the Portland Trail Blazers, according to Shams Charania of Athletics.

Williams, 22, played for the Westchester Knicks of the NBA G League in his first year of professional basketball. He didn’t play anywhere in 2020-21 after leaving Arizona to pursue a professional career.

The 6-foot-2 Williams was in the Wildcats’ program for two seasons but only played 26 games with lingering knee problems. As a true freshman in 2018-19, he started 21 games and averaged 11.4 points and 3.8 assists, but then missed 2019-20 after undergoing surgery to repair a congenital condition of the knee.

Williams is the second ex-Wildcat to sign a 10-day contract in the past two days, with the other being Wing Stanley Johnson with the Los Angeles Lakers. The impact of COVID-19 on the NBA has forced teams to add players on difficult contracts in order to fill the rosters.
