Nets Sign Shelden Williams, Among Howard's Long-Term Possibilities

Shelden Williams has been in New Jersey since Saturday, but he didn't officially sign his contract, a one-year deal, with the Nets until Tuesday morning. Other than signing their draft picks and adding their D-League camp invites, signing Williams is the first roster move the Nets have made since the lockout ended.

Williams played in 59 games for the Nuggets and Knicks last season. Over five seasons, he has career averages of 4.5 points and 4.0 rebounds in 14.2 minutes. He'll wear No. 33 for the Nets. His contract is fully guaranteed.

Yet another Williams, Sheldon's teammate Shawne Williams is expected to choose Wednesday between the Nets, Knicks and Heat, according to HoopsWorld's Alex Kennedy. The 6'9" small forward wants a multi-year deal.

Meanwhile, all is quiet on the Dwight Howard front, unless you want to count a single tweet from Chris Broussard, which isn't really new news. "There r only 4 teams Dwight Howard would sign longterm deal with - Orl, NJ, LAL, Dal - a source says."

Howard's agent, Dan Fegan, has been granted permission by the Magic to talk with the Nets, Lakers and Mavericks. And on Monday, Howard left the door open to the possibility of staying in Orlando.
