Eric Williams attended Malcolm X Shabazz High School in his hometown, where he started playing basketball. He continued his education as well as his basketball career through Burlington County College in New Jersey, but later transferred to Vincennes University in Indiana which was followed by moving to Rhode Island’s Providence College.
Eric Williams’ official career began when he was drafted as pick #14 by the Boston Celtics at the 1995 NBA Draft, for a position of small forward. After only two seasons, Eric was traded to the Denver Nuggets. During his first season in the Nuggets, he played only four games due to an injury to his anterior cruciate ligament. After recovery, he played almost half of the season before returning to the Celtics, where he spent the next four seasons. These engagements provided the basis for Eric Williams’ net worth.
Prior to signing with the New Jersey Nets in 2004, Eric Williams spent one season at the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, alongside Alonzo Mourning and Aaron Williams, Eric Williams was traded from the Nets to the Toronto Raptors in exchange for Vince Carter.
In 2005, Eric Williams tried his luck in the business of the fashion industry, when he launched his own clothing line in honor of the fictional Negro Basketball League. This venture certainly made a positive impact on Eric William’s wealth.

In the Spurs, Eric Williams spent the 2006-07 season, before transferring to Charlotte Bobcats in 2007.

Unfortunately, the show screened the breakdown of Eric’s marriage in 2014.
Although during his 12 years long NBA career, he accumulated nearly $40 million, after the divorce Eric Williams was left, as he claims, homeless and penniless with over $24,000 in alimony debt. Yes, you read it well! From $40 million to -$100,000, in just two years!
