   2017 NBA Manifesto

Marvin Williams
SF/PF, 6’9, 237lbs, 31 years old, 12 years of experience

Put up pretty much the exact same performance as the previous year - rebounding almost identical, three-point attempt rate almost identical, usage rate almost identical, average defensive impact much the same - but he had to ride a lot of inconsistency in order to do that. There was also a decline in his scoring efficiency, as the anomalous 40.2% three-point stroke of the year prior came back down (35.0%) and returned to pretty much his career average (35.0%). Williams has three years left on his contract at a price above that of an average starter, yet at this point, that it what he is, with age now against him.

Player Plan: Three years and $42,262,500 remaining, including a player option for 2019/20. Quite a lot of money for an inconsistent fringe starter on the wrong side of 30. A useful part of the team, but certainly not an invaluable one.

   Chicago's Meticulously Crafted 2011 Offseason Plan That Relies An Awful Lot Upon Guesswork

[T]he amnesty clause (that we're having to pretend will exist here, but which almost certainly will exist in some form) will further expand the range of available talents. A lot of decent players are going to become available, not because they can't play the game, but because they can't justify their contract. A lot of the candidates are obvious and inevitable, some perhaps less so. Here's a potential list:

- Atlanta: Marvin Williams - Due to their own ill-discpline, Atlanta are pretty capped out. They needn't have been, for aforementioned Joe Johnson-related reasons. But they are, and the presence of Marvin Williams (three years and circa $25 million remaining) is a further hinderance. Williams stopped improving once he got paid, and is now a mere fringe starter, a man seemingly contented with doing little more than shooting long twos. Trying to trade him would only cost assets.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
