Jay Williams is expected to sign a nonguaranteed contract within days and join the Nets training camp next week, Rod Thorn said Tuesday. Earlier, Chris Creed of the Nets laid out the challenges faced by the Plainfield native, but noted that they are nowhere near what he has already faced since his motorcycle accident three years ago. Nets' assistant Bill Cartwright, who was Williams coach in Chicago, is encouraged: "His shooting is much better, his decision-making is better. He is a smarter player now."
