Former UC Santa Barbara Basketball Player Alan Williams Signs With The Phoenix Suns

Jul 11, 2017

One of the most exciting players to come out of UC Santa Barbara, Alan Williams, is going to play for the Phoenix Suns on a regular basis.

The three year deal with the NBA team was reportedly for $17 million.

Williams is 24 years old and after his time at UCSB, he played professionally in China, and then part-time for the Suns in 47 games.  At least one other team was interested in signing Williams, who was a free agent.

Williams has an extra reason to sign with Phoenix, as his mother, Jeri Williams, is Phoenix's police chief. She was Oxnard's police chief before taking the top job in Phoenix last year.
