The Nets have not pulled off the trade for Dwight Howard, as of yet. But the team has signed free agent forward Shelden Williams.

Williams has primarily been a bench player since entering into the league. He was selected by the Atlanta Hawks, out of Duke University, with the fifth overall pick in the 2006 NBA draft.

He has played five years in the NBA, but has been a journeyman in his career. He has played for six teams prior to signing with the Nets, which is his seventh team when the NBA season starts.

He has averaged 4.5 points and 4.6 rebounds in 303 career games.

He has played for the Hawks, Kings, Timberwolves, Celtics, Nuggets, and Knicks.

“He is a proven veteran,” general manager Billy King said, “who will add depth to our frontcourt rotation.”
