Report: Nets sign Shelden Williams
By Mike Mazzeo
"The Landlord" will reportedly be owning the paint in New Jersey this season.
Shelden Williams -- who earned the nickname at Duke -- has agreed to a one-year contract with the Nets, according to Yahoo Sports!
In seven seasons, the 28-year-old Williams owns career averages of 4.5 points and four rebounds per game. He played 17 games for the Knicks last season and made six starts after being acquired in the Carmelo Anthony trade. The Nets will be his sixth NBA team.
Williams is married to WNBA superstar Candace Parker.
The Nets now have four frontcourt players under contract, with Williams joining Brook Lopez, Johan Petro and Jordan Williams.
GM Billy King also was a Blue Devil. Perhaps that can be attributed -- at least somewhat -- to why Williams is a Net.
