William "Will" Franklin Avery Jr. (born August 8, 1979 in Augusta, Georgiamarker) is an Americanmarker professional basketball player.

Pro career

NBA

Avery, a 6 ft 2 ¾ in (1.90 m) point guard from Duke University, was selected 14th overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 1999 NBA Draft after his sophomore year, when he (along with Elton Brand and Corey Maggette) became one of the first players under Mike Krzyzewski to leave Duke before graduating. He was considered a draft bust, never having lived up to expectations. He averaged 2.7 points per game and 1.4 assists per game in 142 NBA games over three seasons with the Timberwolves.

Israel and Europe

Avery was not signed by any NBA teams after his 3-year contract with the Timberwolves expired in 2002, so he moved his career overseas. Since then, Avery has played with the following pro clubs: Hapoel Tel-Aviv and Hapoel Jerusalem of the Israeli League, Strasbourg IG of the French League, Azovmash Mariupol of the Ukrainian League, Makedonikos Alfa, Panionios, and AEK Athens of the Greek League, ALBA Berlin of the German League, and Galatasaray Café Crown of the Turkish League.

Avery was released from Galatasaray in October 2007, just three months after signing with the club. He then immediately moved to Greece and signed with AEK Athens. He joined Trikala 2000 in 2008. In the summer of 2009, he moved to PAOK BC.
