The Nets have announced that center Sean Williams, the 17th overall pick from last season, has been assigned to their D-League affiliate, the Colorado 14ers. They should rename the team the 17ers. Talk about falling from the sky like a rock.
And to think: If not for some off-the-court issues Williams had coming out of Boston College -- including several suspensions for violating "team rules" -- he might've been a lottery pick. We don't need to kick the man when he's down, but suffice it to say that when you Google Sean Williams and one of the entries that shows up on the first page is from the website Cannabis.com, it is not good.
Wendell Maxey of HoopsWorld did a piece on Williams today titled "Searching for Sean Williams." The search is over.
