Timberwolves notes: Williams ponders overseas options

In the wake of the NBA officially cancelling games this week, Timberwolves first round draft pick Derrick Williams is officially considering playing overseas.   Several NBA players, including All-Star Deron Williams, have already signed with teams outside of the U.S. in preparation for the lengthy lockout.   Players typically are using the overseas option simply to keep a paycheck coming in, to see another country, or to keep their games sharp during this long layoff.

“I’m really going to be looking into it,” Williams told GoAZCats.com, a website that covers University of Arizona sports, about his intentions to play overseas if the lockout continues. “I think that’s the Plan B, especially at this point.”
