Short but effective NBA career

After two seasons at Arizona, Williams was selected by the Orlando Magic as the tenth choice in the first round of the 1991 NBA Draught. During his two seasons in Orlando, he saw limited action. After two seasons with the Orlando Magic, Williams joined the Denver Nuggets. He played a career-high 80 games and averaged 8.0 points per game in 1993-94. Williams subsequently spent a year with the Los Angeles Clippers, where he saw greater playing time and averaged 15.8 points per game.

Williams was unable to find a team at the start of the 1996-97 season due to a contract disagreement and allegations that his asking price was too high. He sat out most of the season. He was later signed by the Chicago Bulls nine games before the season’s end and played a key role in the Bulls’ march to their fifth title. Williams concluded his career with the Detroit Pistons, where he posted career highs in points and rebounds per game in 1997-98. He changed his name to Bison Dele in 1998 to honor his Cherokee and African ancestors, and he played his last season with that name.

Dele abruptly retired from the NBA before the start of the 1999-2000 season, at the age of 30, while he was still in his peak. He was the Pistons’ highest-paid player, but due to bad ties with the organization, he chose to walk away from the remaining five years and US$36.45 million on his deal rather than be traded.
