SALT LAKE CITY -- Former Villanova and NBA point guard Alvin Williams is assisting in the Sixers' player development during the Utah and NBA summer leagues.
The current Germantown Academy assistant coach is likely to remain on the Sixers staff beyond the summer, a source said. But s of Sunday, he said, he hadn't been notified about a future opportunity. For now, the nine-year NBA veteran will evaluate and work with some of the Sixers' young players.
"It would be a great move for the Sixers if that is what they did," Germantown Academy coach Jim Fenerty said of hiring Williams full-time. "He's well educated. He loves the game, and he's an excellent teacher of the game." Fenerty coached Williams at GA in the early 1990s.
Williams also has ties to Bryan Colangelo, the Sixers' president of basketball operations. Williams, who played 7 ½ seasons in Toronto, joined the Raptors' coaching staff in 2009, when Colangelo was the team's president and general manager. Williams later served as the Raptors' director of player development from 2010-13.
