Former NBA No. 2 Overall Pick Signs in Greece

 He was the 2nd overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves, but things never quite panned out as expected for forward Derrick Williams. He hasn't suited up in the NBA since 2018. He's signed on to play this coming season with Greece team Panathinaikos Athens of the EuroLeague.

It's a one-year contract for Williams, who has turned his career into a round-the-world tour since leaving the NBA. This is the 5th different country he's played in, after stops at Bayern Munich in Germany, Fenerbahce in Turkey, Valencia in Spain, and last season at Maccabi Tel Aviv in Israel, where he averaged 9.4 points and 3.1 rebounds.

The 6'8" forward had a decent start to his career with the Timberwolves, averaging 12 points and 5.5 rebounds in 24 minutes a game in his second season, but from there, bounced around between six teams, before finishing his 7-year NBA career averaging 8.9 points and 4 rebounds per game, not to mention some spectacular dunks.
