Corey "Homicide" Williams Not Returning To The NBL?

The roster for the NBL teams has been mostly posted, and to the surprise of many, NBL star and former New York National, Corey "Homicide" Williams, is not on the roster for his previous team The Melborn Tigers. Or, for that matter, does he appear to be playing for anyone in the NBL.

This is something of a surprise as Williams, who is also a legendary street ball player, has become very popular with the NBL audiences. Not sure what prompted the change, although I do know Williams has been criticized in the past for not being a "team player" which the NBL puts a heavy emphasis on.

Being an American, I obviously haven't really been able to follow the NBL. However, Williams is arguably the most successful former General/National to still be playing professional ball outside of the team. So I am dissapointed he won't be returning to the league he has been so successful in.

Still, I am sure that Williams will return soon enough to the streetball scene and I wish him the best of luck on whatever the future holds for him.
