Amid an ESPN report that Jason Williams is in serious discussions with Israeli-league team Tel Aviv, just received confirmation that there is indeed interest, but that a deal is not imminent. In fact, we've been told by two sources that J-Will essentially remains in a holding pattern with a couple of potential suitors. A few days ago, we were told not to completely rule out a possible return to the Heat at a deeply, deeply, deeply discounted rate from the $8.9 million he earned last season. If Heat president Pat Riley is even interested in a reunion, it would most likely happen in the range of $1.3 to $2 million. But word out of Israel from at least one source familiar with Tel Aviv's negotiations is that Williams is seeking a deal with an annual salary of at least $3 million. The Israeli teams is thinking closer to $1.5, which is similar to any deal any NBA suitor might extend, including the Heat.

for the same money he might as well stay here and take on a backup position to put less strain on his knees. unless it's crazy money..i wouldnt play overseas..that's just me though.

JWill in Israel...funk that. Europe is one thing, but who would willingly choose to go live in Israel, considering the state of affairs in the middle east?

He is in a very bad situation right now. No team seems to be interested in him. No one wants to pay for a player who is old, injury-prone and almost washed up. Retirement is another option he should consider

he is playing w/ a lot of injuries. IMO he shouldn't risk his health. Money isn't all

Shalom J-Will. I can't imagine a dude like amongst all those religious people in Israel. I have been there and J-Will and Israel in the same sentence is not kosher.
