Last season, Jazz forward Marvin Williams showed a sense of leadership that makes him appealing to be a part of Utah’s future. However, Williams may have other options in the upcoming seasons.
As a highly coveted stretch 4, teams will look closely at Williams. One team most experts anticipate making a run at Williams is the NBA champion San Antonio Spurs, where Williams would fit their Matt Bonner-type role.
However, Grantland’s Zack Lowe mentions Marvin as a possibility to the vanquished Miami Heat in his piece about LeBron’s future.
Teams being interested in a class act like Marvin Williams is not surprising. The surprise here is the mention of a full mid-level for Marvin Williams. Some execs I talked to late last year mentioned the idea of a three-year, $9 million dollar deal, and others mentioned nothing more than two years.
What’s clear is that Marvin earned the right last year to be a veteran leader for a young Jazz team if he so desires.
