As Derrick Williams enters the final year of his rookie contract, can the Kings develop him into a long-term fit, or is he more valuable as an expiring contract? As the Kings enter the second season of the Derrick Williams gamble, they may soon hit an impasse with the 23 year-old forward. Williams remains one of the youngest players on the squad and has plenty of potential for growth, but the team wants to win now, and his $6.6 million dollar expiring contract is a logical fit in any blockbuster trade.
