Terrence Wiliams' two-game suspension from the New Jersey Nets for violating team rules is over. His punishment for his trangressions is not. The Nets have assigned Williams to their NBA Developmental League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.
"After discussing the situation with Avery over the last several days, I feel the best course of action for Terrence and the team at this time is for him to play in the D-League," said Nets general manager Billy King. "He is currently on the inactive list and this move will allow him to play until he is once again placed on the active list. There is no timetable on his return to the active list, and Terrence's future status will be addressed at the appropriate time."
Williams was selected 11th overall by New Jersey in the first round of the 2009 NBA Draft. The Louisville product has appeared in 86 career games for the Nets, averaging 8.3 ppg, 4.4 rpg and 2.9 apg. This season, Williams has played in eight contests, with averages of 6.8 ppg, 3.8 rpg and 3.0 apg.
This season the 6-foot-6 forward was averaging 6.8 points per game in just eight games. He also missed five games with a strained abdominal muscle.
