Zags’ Williams to Italy
Former Gonzaga standout Johnathan Williams will continue his professional basketball career in Italy. Williams signed with Dolomiti Energia in Trento, the team announced.
Williams saw limited playing time recently with the NBA Summer League champion Sacramento Kings. The 6-foot-9 forward averaged just 3.6 minutes in four game appearances in Las Vegas.
He had four points and two rebounds in a 16-minute stint in the California Classic, hosted by Sacramento before the Las Vegas summer league.
Williams, 26, played last season in Turkey and Germany.
• Jantzen Witte had three hits and three runs batted in but the Tacoma Rainiers lost 7-5 to the host Sacramento River Cats.
