Alan Williams Signs Two-Way Deal With Nets 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jan 11, 2019 4:46 pm

The Brooklyn Nets have signed forward/center Alan Williams to a two-way contract. 

Williams originally signed a two-way contract with Brooklyn on Sept. 24 and was waived on Jan. 2.

Williams had planned to sign in China.

In 17 games for Brooklyn’s NBA G League affiliate, the Long Island Nets, Williams has recorded season averages of 21.0 points and 14.7 rebounds in 26.9 minutes per contest. He has yet to appear in a game for Brooklyn.

In 62 games over three seasons (2015-18) with the Phoenix Suns, Williams holds career NBA averages of 6.4 points and 5.7 rebounds in 13.6 minutes per game while shooting 50.2 percent (155-of-309) from the field.

Since it is clear that Kenny Atkinson doesn't like Kenneth Faried (except as 3rd Center, but not with small ball), I expect him to request a trade or be waived; Alan Williams makes sense to eventually replace the role of Faried, and to be used at both the 5 and 4;

Nets fans are anxious to see what Alan Williams can do;

The trade that the Nets really need to consider, is to move Allan Crabbe with the Denver 1st round pick, for an expiring like the Kings' Iman Shumpert; The Kings don't have a pick, but I'm not sure if they make that move unless the Denver pick becomes more valuable and Crabbe proves he can still shoot 40% from 3 pt, after returning from injury;
If the Nets could lose the 18.5 M of Crabbe for next season, they could keep all their core (including D'Lo and RHJ) and still sign KD with some room left over; The Nets would be a real contender with KD added to the current team;
If KD or no other desirable free agent was interested, the Nets could still make a max (27.25 M) offersheet for Porzingis; The Knicks would be forced to match, thus limiting their options;
