The veteran guard's started four-of-six games for Long Island this season, averaging 9.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 29.8 minutes. It's unclear whether his return to the bench will be a long-term move, however, based on William's struggles from the field (38.6 percent shooting), his demotion could last for the foreseeable future.

  • C.J. Williams: Waived by Brooklyn

    Williams was waived by the Nets on Friday, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

  • Nets' C.J. Williams: Signs with Brooklyn

    Williams has signed a contract with the Nets, Nicola Lupo of Sportnado.com reports.

  • C.J. Williams: Makes five of 15 three-point attempts

    Williams finished Sunday's loss to the Vipers with 21 points (7-17 FG, 5-15 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one block.

    Williams took a bizarre 15 three-point attempts, nearly doubling his season average through 32 games with the Wolves. The G League veteran has connected a normally-reliable 36.5 percent from deep this year, so it's not entirely surprising to see the final box score Sunday, but even still, a more balanced effort might have helped Williams improve even more upon his 13.4 season average in points.

  • Timberwolves' C.J. Williams: Active, but doesn't play

    Williams (coach's decision) didn't leave the bench Sunday in the Timberwolves' 116-114 win over the Suns.

    The Timberwolves promoted the two-way player from the G League's Iowa Wolves prior to the contest, but the game was too close for interim coach Ryan Saunders to justify calling on Williams off the bench. Williams hasn't logged any appearances at the NBA level since Nov. 9 and will probably only see action in garbage time whenever he dresses for games.

  • Timberwolves' C.J. Williams: Inks two-way deal with Minnesota

    Williams and the Timberwolves agreed to a two-way contract on Tuesday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Williams spent 38 games with the Clippers last season, garnering 18.6 minutes per tilt due to the myriad of injuries in LA's backcourt. He averaged a modest 5.5 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists. In signing a two-way deal with Minnesota, Williams will spend the majority of the season in the G-League, but is allowed 45 days at the NBA level.

  • C.J. Williams: To be waived by Clippers

    Williams is expected to be waived by the Clippers, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Williams was on a two-way contract with the Clippers last season and ultimately appeared in 38 games for the team. The 28-year-old ended up playing a quality supporting role in Los Angeles next season, averaging 5.5 points per game off the bench, and he should be able to latch onto another franchise before the start of training camp.

  • Clippers' C.J. Williams: Moderate contributor off bench

    Williams tallied 5.5 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 38 games played with the Clippers in 2017-18.

    Williams was a moderate contributor off the bench for coach Doc Rivers and the Clippers during his rookie season as he mostly scored in single digits all season long. On Jan. 2 against Memphis, though, the North Carolina State product erupted for 18 points in what was the best game of his career by far. Williams may be looking for a new team next season, as his two-way contract with the Clippers expired this year.

  • Clippers' C.J. Williams: Scores 10 points in Monday's loss

    Williams went for 10 points (5-12 FG, 0-5 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 30 minutes during Monday's 113-100 loss to the Pelicans.

    Williams drew the start with Milos Teodosic (foot), Austin Rivers (elbow), and Lou Williams (ankle) all sidelined. The 28-year-old rookie wing should probably be expected to see similar playing time during Wednesday's season finale versus the Lakers.

  • Clippers' C.J. Williams: Set for spot start Monday

    Williams will enter the starting five for Monday's game against the Pelicans, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.

    The Clippers are set to be without the likes of Milos Teodosic (foot), Austin Rivers (elbow) and Lou Williams (ankle) on Monday, so Williams will pick up the start in the backcourt alongside Tyrone Wallace. Both Williams and Wallace should be set for significant workloads, though Wallace has more upside between the two. Either way, Williams should be set for a temporary uptick in production, which could extend through Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Lakers if the Clippers take a cautious approach with their veterans.

  • Clippers' C.J. Williams: Starting at small forward Tuesday

    Williams will pick up the spot start Tuesday against the Spurs, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.

    The Clippers are set to be without Danilo Gallinari (hand) on Tuesday, so Williams will get the call to jump into the top unit in his place. Williams was a DNP-CD in Sunday's contest, so his elevation to the top unit should mean a significant bump in playing time and production. Along with Williams, Wesley Johnson and Sindarius Thornwell should see an uptick in minutes with Gallinari on the sidelines.

  • Clippers' C.J. Williams: Rejoins Clippers from G-League

    Williams was recalled from the G-League on Monday, Elliott Teaford of Southern California News Group reports.

    Both Williams and Tyrone Wallace had used up all 45 eligible days at the NBA level on their two-way contracts and were delegated to the G-League earlier this month. However, after the completion of the G-League regular season over the weekend, Williams is now eligible to rejoin the Clippers and remain there for the rest of the 2017-18 campaign. He'll slot in as depth on the wing, though is unlikely to receive more than a handful of minutes off the bench if the Clippers remain healthy over the final few weeks of the season.

  • C.J. Williams: Erupts for 35

    Williams produced 35 points (13-29 FG, 9-21 3Pt), five assists, four rebounds, one steal and one block during Tuesday's 109-107 win over the Oklahoma City Blue.

    Tuesday's scoring performance was a new season high for Williams, as the knocked down nine three-point shots on an astonishing 21 attempts. The 6-5 guard has been inconsistent in his ability to score at a constant rate this season though, as he was coming off back-to-back games in which he scored eight and nine points respectively. Currently, the North Carolina State product is averaging 14.9 points and 3.7 rebounds through 11 games played for Agua Caliente.

  • C.J. Williams: Season high in loss

    Williams recorded 26 points (10-19 FG, 6-11 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal during Thursday's 108-104 loss at South Bay.

    Williams' 26 points Thursday were a new season high for the guard who has been an inconsistent scorer for Agua Caliente this season. The 28-year-old's average of 14.2 points per game may seem impressive but that is usually due to Williams having a great game, commonly reaching the 20-point mark, followed by a very poor game in single digits.

    Williams finished with nine points (1-8 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 7-7 FT), four rebounds and three assists during Thursday's 113-105 win over the visiting Vipers.

    This was the third time this season in which Williams has shot below 19 percent, but was able to get to the free-throw line and convert all of his attempts. The former North Carolina State guard is averaging 13.0 points and 3.7 rebounds across 10 games played.
