According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Clippers brought Robert Williams to Playa Vista for the second time on Tuesday in advance of Thursday’s NBA Draft. Williams previously worked out for the Clippers last week. Tuesday’s meeting reportedly featured a conversation with Clippers owner Steve Ballmer, a sign that the team is seriously considering the big man from Texas A&M with one of their late lottery picks.

Wojnarowski also reported that Williams has declined his invitation to the green room at the NBA Draft, and will instead watch the proceedings with his family at home. We can really only guess as to whether this decision is at all related to his meeting withe Steve Ballmer and Clippers brass.
