Nothing will ever replace what Monty Williams and his family so suddenly lost. During this unimaginably difficult time, though, the basketball lifer will have a league full of shoulders to lean on.
Williams’ wife, Ingrid, passed away tragically on Wednesday evening due to injuries sustained in a car accident. The 44-year-old is survived by her husband and and five children.
In a statement, New Orleans Pelicans owners said Mrs. Williams will be remembered “as one of the most generous, kind and humble individuals we’ve ever known.” And after the outpouring of support toward the Williams family in wake of this heartbreaking news, it’s safe to say the NBA family feels the same way.
The Oklahoma City Thunder, for whom Williams serves as an assistant coach, announced the news last night.
