According to Earl Sneed, the Mavericks are in the process of waiving Sean Williams. This would be an unusual time to do that, given the fact that the Mavs were outrebounded last night about 4 million to 3, so one guesses they are making room for another player.
Happy trails, Crab Man. Sorry to see you go.
Williams played just eight games for the Mavs with most of his time spend on Dallas' D-League affiliate the Texas Legends. In his limited time with the Mavericks, Williams averaged 3.6 points and 1.6 rebounds in 8.1 minutes a game. Williams also played in 24 games for the Texas Legends, averaging 14.7 points, 8.5 rebounds and 2.5 blocks a game.
According to the new CBA, Williams had been bounced back and forth between the Legends and Mavericks a maximum of three times for a player on an NBA contract. Players waived by Friday and signed by another team will be eligible for the playoffs. I'd imagine someone will take a flyer on a 6-foot-8 forward for the stretch run, no? I mean, he is 6-foot-8.
Depending on interest from other NBA programs, Williams could also sign with the Legends where he's played 73 games over the past two seasons.
