French team Elan Chalon announced that it has signed forward Shelden Williams, according to Emiliano Carchia of Sportando (via Twitter). Williams did not land with an NBA team this offseason, despite being one of the top rebounders remaining on the open market.
The big man hooked on with the Nets just prior to the 2011/12 season and wound up starting 35 games in place of Brook Lopez, who missed the bulk of the year. Williams averaged 4.6 PPG and 6.0 RPG in 22 minutes per contest, forming a strong rebounding frontcourt alongside Kris Humphries. The former fifth-overall pick in the 2006 draft has spent time with seven NBA teams across six seasons.
