Bringing in complementary pieces from the outside who can make a real difference, however, is another altogether. Williams thinks he can help in that regard, too — even though it wasn't exactly the forte of the Jazz's former franchise point guard, future hall-of-famer John Stockton. "I don't think John and Karl (Malone) and those guys were as friendly as I (am) as far as 'around the league,"' he said. "Making friends — they didn't really care for that. "I think I can do a good job of recruiting guys, and trying to get them here, and trying to get over that stereotype that Utah's not a great place to live." Texas-raised, Williams is making his home in Utah full time now. It's one more small piece of evidence that he's truly taken stake in the franchise, one in which he takes increasing pride. "I feel like I'm a big part of this organization, and I like that," Williams said. "I like that responsibility."

Deseret News | Utah Jazz: Williams doing his part to help Jazz build title contender Williams could be worth a lot more than the contract he just signed if he can help bring others to Utah.
