Source: Marvin Williams agrees to deal with Hornets

Free-agent forward Marvin Williams has reached agreement on a fully guaranteed two-year, $14 million contract with the Charlotte Hornets, a league source told Yahoo Sports.

Williams averaged 9.1 points and 5.1 rebounds with the Utah Jazz last season. There is no option in the deal, the source said.

A former University of North Carolina star, Williams is still taking classes at the school this summer to work toward his degree.

The Hornets focused on Williams after their offer sheet for free-agent forward Gordon Hayward was matched by the Jazz.
