Williams played in 17 games for Cheshire late last season, picking up 14 points and six rebounds per game, and playing a key part in their quarter-final playoff defeat of the Wolves.
The 6'6' inch British-Canadian small forward graduated from South Dakota State in 2010, before making his professional debut in the top division of French basketball for Blois Basket.
After his stint at Cheshire he played briefly this season in Cyprus, averaging seven points and four rebounds a game for Apollon.
Worcester Director of Basketball Paul James is thrilled to have 24-year-old Williams on board, saying: 'Kai played against us several times last season, so I know his game quite well. He can drive strongly to the basket, is a threat from the outside, and can also rebound well.'
James is eagerly looking forward to how the latest additions to his squad should improve Wolves' performances, commenting: 'Now that we have Prezzie back to take over the playmaker position I am really excited at the prospect of Alex Owumi being freed up to express himself more, and to also now have Kai here to give us even more versatility.'
The Wolves organisation also confirmed that they have released forward Stuart Thomson from their roster, placing on record their appreciation for his input during his time at the club and wishing him well for the future.

There were important movements in the BBL Championship table on Saturday night as Leicester Riders and Surrey Scorchers scored important wins.
Pierre Hampton (201-F-91, agency: Interperformances) led Riders back to the top of the league as he netted 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds in a 95-69 defeat of Cheshire Phoenix at Leicester Arena, for a sixth straight win to displace the Esh Group Eagles Newcastle, who lost on Friday night.
Scorchers, meanwhile, jumped back into the play-off places with another nail-biting win, 80-77 over fellow play-off chasers Leeds Force. Quincy Taylor's 27 points led Scorchers to a fourth win in five games, with all four having been won by a margin of no more than one shot.
Leicester Riders charged back to the top of the BBL Championship table with a comprehensive 95-69 defeat of Cheshire Phoenix at Leicester Arena, Pierre Hampton posting 18 points and nine rebounds as five Riders scored in double-figures.
Leicester came into the game on the back of five consecutive wins, while Phoenix had Robbie Peers back at the helm after a run of six defeats in their last eight league games, leaving them outside of the play-off places.
And it was a tough night for Cheshire, as they struggled to get their offence going against the league's second best defence, shooting just 27% through the first fifteen minutes as Frank Eaves had 14 of the visitors' 17 points up to that point.
Riders, meanwhile, established an early double-digit lead with Tyler Bernardini hitting 11 points including a pair of triples - the first one putting them up 19-9 - and a lay-up on the fast break that made the score 31-17 in the second quarter.
Leicester's advantage reached twenty when they held Cheshire scoreless for four minutes and Conner Washington pushed the lead out to 39-19, capping a run of eight unanswered points.
Peers had an influence over the half time break, and Cheshire had one last go at getting back into the game when a 9-0 run got them back to 62-50, former Rider Jamall Anderson scoring four.
But Andy Thomson halted that run in its tracks with two scores late in the third quarter, and the game was settled when Hampton hit two triples in a row and Bernardini added another in little more than a minute and a half in the fourth, before the lead peaked at the final score.
Surrey Scorchers moved back into the BBL Championship play-off spots with an important 80-77 defeat of play-off chasing rivals Leeds Force. Led by 27 points and five assists from Quincy Taylor, it was a fourth win in five games for the Scorchers, with the margin in all four being just one shot.
The first half swing like a pendulum, with Will Neighbour's four-point play sparking a run of eight unanswered points and helping establish a double-digit lead at 24-13 as Taylor added another six.
But Force came into the game with a great record against Surrey, having won six of the seven BBL meetings, and Jack Isenbarger dominated the second stanza. He got them to within single-figures by hitting eight consecutive points, and they were within one when he added another five in a row - Force outscoring their hosts 16-4 over a four minute spell. And Leeds took the lead just before the break, when Isenbarger made it 47-46 with the last score of the half, completing a huge 27 point haul to that point.
Scorchers came into this game on the back of two consecutive buzzer-beating wins, and this one was destined to be almost as close. They got back in front, 61-59, when Taylor scored four in a row but only maintained a slight edge until he scored once more with three minutes to play to make it 78-72, thereby giving Scorchers an unfamiliar cushion.
But five in a row from Leeds, including a Robert Sandoval triple, got Force back to within one point heading into the final minute. He came close to setting up another buzzer-beating finish, but missed the crucial shot that could have put Leeds in front, before Neighbour scored the final basket of the game.

Taylor scored six early points in the third before an 8-0 run put the Lions ahead, and they maintained a slender advantage ahead of the final 10 minutes. Glasgow levelled with the first score of the fourth period, but a trio of triples gave the hosts the upper-hand.
Taylor hit a huge three to make it 68-63 inside the final two minutes, and although Watson answered, Taylor nailed a pair of free throws which proved to be enough for the win.

Worcester Wolves produced an impressive display to pull off a 103-112 victory away at the recent Cup champions, Esh Group Eagles Newcastle.

Maurice Walker, Ashton Khan and Danny Huffor all netted 20+ points with three other players in double figures in the Wolves' seventh league success.
The Eagles made a strong start before being pegged back by Worcester's hot streak from downtown. Rahmon Fletcher's mid-range jumpshot edged his side ahead and they extended their lead to five by half-time.
However, there was to be a twist in the second half as the Wolves came out firing in the third and racked up 30 points to open up a 12-point advantage.
The visitors stretched their lead out to 18 in the fourth and despite a rally from the Eagles, they were left with to much to do and suffered their third league defeat despite 34 points and 13 assists from Fletcher.
