Just not as a player any more. As Howard Beck writes in The New York Times, Jerome Williams intends to earn the paycheck he is still getting from the Knicks.
Williams met with Isiah Thomas, the team president, yesterday morning to talk about his new duties. He will also work as a commentator for MSG Network and expects to do some scouting. Williams is producing his second motivational rap album, due out this fall, and said he has "a few movie offers." But his long-term goals remain in basketball. He hopes to eventually run a franchise.
"The only thing I leave the game regretting is the fact I didn't dunk on Shaq," he said. "You can tell him I said it."
In other Knick news, New York expects to sign either James Jones or DeSagana Diop, and Nets' Coach Lawrence Frank says the Knicks got better by hiring Larry Brown.
