    Basically a summer league and training camp deal that will land him in Austin unless he falls on his face. Zero chance he makes the real roster, tbh.
    It's amazing how many here post about him being on the roster as if they have never been through an offseaon before. Guys in here who registered in here in 2005 still don't know how training camps work.

    I'd love to see the Spurs sign Jontay Porter to the G league. Real low risk--high return scenario.
    Load Management's shenanigans has probably scared PATFO off from wanting to take on any new cripple, tbh.

    40 minutes of

    SO HE IS OUR BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    here is the complete article

    When North Carolina senior Kenny Williams talks about his defensive philosophy, he smiles, knowing his response will elicit a reaction.
    “Forty minutes of .”
    To put it mildly, Williams wants to make things difficult for his opponent. Or in the words of Williams, he wants “to make the night a living for whoever the coaches want me to guard.”
    That approach has earned Williams, a 6-foot-4, 185-pound guard, the respect of his peers, who are aware that going up against him is no easy feat. His job each night is to guard the opposing team’s best perimeter player, and he plans to make them work for everything.

    “Some guys don’t really take pride in defense, but he’s one of the few who does,” Louisville’s Dwayne Sutton said. “I feel like he’s one of the hardest-playing defenders in the (ACC).”
    Williams is North Carolina’s defensive stopper, a role he’s had since his sop re year, and one he plays with p ion. He has blossomed into one of the ACC’s best defenders over the past two years.
    But he was recently left off the ACC’s all-defensive team, an honor his teammates, coaches and at least one national media member say he should have gotten. ESPN’s Jay Bilas tweeted that “there needs to be a recount. There is no way he’s not among the league’s five best defenders. No way.”

    “Defense is effort and heart,” he said.
    When North Carolina lost at home by 21 points to Louisville in January, Williams was among those who showed the most frustration and disappointment because he didn’t feel like he and his teammates gave the effort they were capable of. Since then, the Tar Heels have won 15 of their last 17 games, losing only to Virginia and Duke, both No. 1 seeds in the NCAA tournament.


    Williams’ raw defensive numbers are not eye-popping, averaging 0.9 steals and 0.3 blocks per game, no doubt a factor in his all-ACC snub. A better place to find his impact is to look at the stats of the player he was guarding.
    Williams drew three charges against Duke freshman R.J. Barrett in UNC’s final regular season game on March 9. After each one, he pumped his fist and ran down court to the excitement of the crowd. He also blocked Barrett’s shot with less than a minute remaining when a Barrett make would have made it a one-possession game. Instead, the Tar Heels gained possession and held on to win 79-70.


    It was one of Williams’ best defensive performances of the season against one of the best offensive players in the country. Barrett, who averages 22.9 points per game, finished the game shooting 10 for 27 from the floor and four turnovers.
    “He moves his feet. He’s always in the right spots,” Barrett said of Williams.
    In last week’s ACC quarterfinal game, Williams’ job was to slow Louisville’s leading scorer Jordan Nwora, who was averaging 17.2 points per game. Nwora has also been a problem for opposing defenses.
    But Williams held Nwora to a season-low seven points on 3-for-8 shooting last Thursday. Some of the misses he caused led to fast-break opportunities for the Tar Heels. The Tar Heels beat the Cardinals 83-70.
    After the game, senior forward Luke Maye and freshman guard Coby White were brought to the podium for the postgame press conference because they led the team in scoring with 19 points each.
    Before Maye left the stage, he had one last thing to say.
    “Mind if I say something?” Maye asked.
    “Let him speak, he won the Skip Prosser (academic) award,” Roy Williams said. “Let him talk.”
    “Coach has changed the defense to help us guard the gaps a little bit better and guard the basket,” Maye said, “but I don’t think Kenny gets enough credit for the job he does.”

    His defense stands out to me more than anything else, which is the reason the Spurs probably picked him up I ume.

    Yeah, maybe next year, when he can actually play.

    "A coach can't change people," Gregg Popovich said before the Spurs obliterated the Nets on New Year's Eve. "They are who they are. No matter what team you're talking about, a coach can be observant and try to put his team in situations both on and off the court where some of that can develop, some of the camaraderie sorts of things. But you can't change people."
