Question: Any idea why the Kings signed Maurice Taylor and let Justin Williams go? As an undrafted rookie, Williams would certainly have been cheaper and seemed to have the defensive shot blocking potential that would have better complemented the defensively week Miller and Rahim. Taylor's offensive skills are not really needed and have not been on display anyway. In the preseason, Williams even had some good offensive outings.

Answer: Honestly, I don't. Taylor has done nothing of note, and he feels strongly that he's yet to be given a chance. Williams, meanwhile, is doing very well in the NBA Developmental League - which doesn't mean that much but is certainly better than not doing well down there. The puzzling part is that the Kings had one roster spot left that could've been taken by Williams at the league minimum salary, but they passed.
