Marvin Williams has officially unofficially signed with the Hawks

Sekou Smith of the AJC reports:

"The truth of the matter is, I still haven't signed, yet."

That's a technicality Williams expects to take care of this afternoon now that he's agreed to a five-year, $37.5 million contract with the Hawks, a deal that with incentives could be worth as much as $43 million. The official announcement is expected early next week.

My feelings on the deal remains the same as when the deal first leaked (or if your Sekou, was falsely reported on). I like Marvin. I like the contract, and I think his best years are ahead of him. If he reaches all his incentives, my guess is 43 million will look like a bargain. An NBA bargain, not like a walmart bargain.

No press conference is planned. Makes sense. Marvin does not seem like a press conference kind of guy. Ahhh Marv, how I love you and your mustache and your duck walk.
