Jay Williams Returns to the NBA, Wants Kidd Backup Role

Jay Williams officially joined the Nets and rejoined the NBA Thursday when the team announced that they had signed him to a contract. The 6'2" point guard also had an announcement: he will not be content to be the 15th man. He plans on battling Marcus Williams for the backup role at the point. The Plainfield native was physically devastated in a motorcycle accident three years ago. While Nets brass are rooting for the Plainfield native's comeback, no one will commit to his making the team...yet.
