Former NCAA and NBA champion Corliss Williamson will announce his retirement from the NBA during a 1:30 p.m. press conference at the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame in Little Rock on Wednesday.

Williamson, 33, played for the Pistons from 2000-2004. In the 2001-02 season, he was named the NBA’s Sixth Man and eventually was a member of the Pistons’ 2003-04 NBA Championship team. His nickname was "Big Nasty."

At Arkansas, WIlliamson was named Most Valuable Player of the 1994 NCAA Final Four, leading Arkansas to the national championship.

He was selected by the Sacramento Kings as a 13th overall pick in the first round of the 1995 NBA Draft. His best career year was in the 1997-98 season when he played 79 games and averaged 17.7 points per game for the Kings.

During his 14-year NBA career, WIlliamson played in 822 games, averaging 22 minutes of action. He averaged 49% shooting from the floor, and 13.6% from beyond the 3-point line.

i miss corliss for the pistons he was a key element of our championship team and the main bench player, ok he wasnt the best defender but he was such a good scorer inside for a man his size. It was a bad descion to trade him by the pistons because he would of helped alot more than some of the players in the "chance" to repeat year
