Former NBA guard Ray Williams dies at age 58


Former University of Minnesota and NBA guard Ray Williams died this past weekend. He was 58.

Williams died March 22, 2013  in New York City after suffering from colon cancer.

Ray is the younger brother of another former NBA star, Gus Williams who played for Golden State, Seattle, Washington and Atlanta.

Williams averaged 18.9 ppg in two seasons at Minnesota where his teammates included Kevin McHale and Mychal Thompson and head coach Flip Saunders. All four made their way into the NBA.

Williams played 10 years in the NBA with the New York Knicks twice, the New Jersey Nets twice, Kansas City Kings, Boston Celtics, Atlanta Hawks and San Antonio Spurs.


Sacramento group bids to keep NBA’s Kings in town

The NBA’s Sacramento Kings have been rumored to be up for sale and moving to Seattle.

On Friday, the NBA received an offer from Mark Mastrov, founder of 24 Hour Fitness, and billionaire Ron Burkle, to buy the Kings franchise and keep the team in town.

A few weeks ago, it was reported that a Seattle group had signed an agreement to buy the Kings from the Maloof family.

If the league blocks the deal to move the team to Seattle, which has been wanting the NBA to come back since the SuperSonics moved to Oklahoma City in 2008, the Maloof family would still have to agree to sell the franchise to any buyer they so choose.

The Kings over the years have been a relocating franchise. They started out as the Rochester Royals (1945-1957), the Cincinnati Royals (1957-1972), Kansas City-Omaha Kings (1972-1975), Kansas City Kings (1975-1985) and in Sacramento 1985-to the present time.
