Hornets To Sign Elliot Williams To 10-Day

The Hornets plan to sign Elliot Williams to a 10-day deal, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.com (on Twitter).  Williams recently went through a pair of 10-day deals with the Jazz before returning to the D-League.

Williams appeared in five games for Utah during his time there, averaging 3.6 points and 0.6 rebounds in 8.4 minutes per contest.  The 25-year-old is a former first round draft pick of the Trail Blazers and was selected No. 2 overall in this year’s D-League draft.

Over parts of three seasons with the Blazers, 76ers, and Jazz, Williams has averaged 5.3 PPG and 1.6 RPG in 14 minutes per contest.  Prior to joining the Jazz this season, Williams had appeared in 16 contests for Santa Cruz, Golden State’s D-League affiliate.  The 25-year-old had notched 21.3 PPG, 4.7 RPG, and 7.7 APG in 37.2 minutes per game.

Utah opted against giving Williams a deal covering the rest of the season and instead used his roster spot to sign swingman Chris Johnson to a 10-day deal.
