Sean Williams will not be traded. He has not asked for a trade. He has not declined one. He'll just be playing basketball. Williams will be part of the underdog Rookie team in the annual rite of passage at the All-Star Weekend. David Thorpe of ESPN says expect Williams to look a bit different than he does with the Nets.
