Fred Kerber reports that Jordan Williams' contract with Zastal in the Polish League will permit him to return to the NBA if the lockout ends and games begin. Williams agent, Andy Miller, announced the deal over the weekend and told Kerber that it is "a terrific opportunity" for the 6'10" Williams, the Nets second round pick.
Williams will play alongside Gani Lawal of the Suns, another Miller client. Lawal, who is similarly sized, is averaging 16.8 and 11.7 for Zastal. It's likely that Williams will get time at center, the position he played at Maryland.
In a Bridgeport benefit game Friday night, he scored 8 points and appeared in good shape, having lost nearly 20 pounds since college.
