Sean Williams called up with Brandan Wright out

By Tim MacMahon

Center/power forward Sean Williams was called up from the D-League Texas Legends and made the trip to Oklahoma City for the Dallas Mavericks.

The Mavs decided they needed Williams because Brandan Wright, who has earned a large share of the center minutes behind Brendan Haywood, is out indefinitely. Wright suffered a concussion in Friday’s loss to the Hornets.

The 6-foot-10, 235-pound Williams, the Nets’ 2007 first-round pick, has spent the majority of the season with the Legends. He has averaged 15.0 points, 8.7 rebounds and 2.6 blocks in 22 D-League games this season.

Williams played only three games with the Mavericks before being assigned to the D-League. One of those appearances was a pretty memorable garbage-time stint in the Dec. 26 loss to the Nuggets, when Williams had 12 points, five fouls, three rebounds, three turnovers, a steal and a block in 11 all-out minutes, losing his pregame snack near the Mavs’ bench when he exited the game.
