On Friday, veteran point guard Jason Williams became an unrestricted free agent, after the New York Knicks failed to sign him, which leaves 29 other NBA teams in contention to sign him, Marc Stein reports.

With the Knicks not taking a bid for Williams, two other teams would like to take a look at him.

Those teams would most probably be the Orlando Magic and the Memphis Grizzlies.

Michael Heisley, the Grizzlies owner, says he would love to have Williams on the team.

Willliams would be a pretty good fit with Grizzlies, because Allen Iverson might not be coming to the team, now that the Miami Heat have been showing interest in him.

I think Williams returning to his old team would be nice.

Williams could also be a good fit with the Orlando Magic, as he can be a good backup to Jameer Nelson.

In his NBA career, Williams has played with the Sacramento Kings, Memphis Grizzlies, and the Miami Heat.

Williams also won an NBA Finals ring back in the 2005-06 season in which the Miami Heat beat the Dallas Mavericks, 4-2.

Williams has averaged 11.4 points, 6.3 assists, and 2.4 rebounds in his career.

Let's see if he can add on to that, if he can fall with either the Grizzlies, Magic, or any other team that may show interest in him.

I wish all the luck to him.
