New Jersey Nets Free Agency: Shelden Williams To Sign One-Year Deal

No matter who ends up starting for the New Jersey Nets in the frontcourt this season, they started to address their depth issues Friday by agreeing to terms with free-agent power forward Shelden Williams on a one-year deal according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Williams was the fifth overall pick in the 2006 NBA Draft by the Atlanta Hawks, but was never able to justify being selected so high. In addition to the Hawks, Williams has played with the Sacramento Kings, Minnesota Timberwolves, Boston Celtics, Denver Nuggets and New York Knicks during his five year career.

In 303 games, the forward has averaged 4.5 points and 4 rebounds per game while shooting 46 percent from the floor.  Williams appeared in the playoffs with the Celtics in 09-10, averaging 1.6 points and 1.6 rebounds in eight games.

The former Duke Blue Devil will help deliver a little basketball star power to The Prudential Center if he makes the team.  His wife is Los Angeles Sparks forward and WNBA MVP Candace Parker.
