Alan Williams Signs Two-Way Deal With Nets

SEPTEMBER 24: Williams’ two-way contract with the Nets is now official, the team confirmed today in a press release.

SEPTEMBER 14: The Nets will sign free agent center Alan Williams to a two-way contract, tweets ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Williams spent his first three seasons with the Suns before being waived in July. He played just five games at the NBA level last year, spending most of his time in the G League. Williams appeared in 62 games during his time in Phoenix, averaging 6.4 PPG and 5.7 RPG.

Williams, who worked out for the Cavaliers last week, will be limited to 45 days in the NBA under the two-way deal. He will join an organization that has been looking for big men at the G League level.

The Nets still have their other two-way slot open, along with one more roster vacancy heading into camp.

    This is a really good signing for Brooklyn. Young player with a ton of potential.

      Jarrett Allen might be the odd man out with Williams and Davis on the roster. Really good signing he was underrated in Phoenix because he’s more of a traditional big that doesn’t space the floor well.

      • I agree that this is a great signing, but no way does Jarrett Allen lose any PT due to this deal. Allen should be the starter on this team.

        Lmao are you crazy. Jarrett Allen is the definition of modern day center and the future of Brooklyn Nets.

          Allen has the same in-close game Williams has, except JA is taller. None of the Nets’ Cs have range though it’s a pretty good group.

            Allen shot 35% last year from 3 point range. It was a small sample size but with his 80% free throw percentage and him saying he’s been working on his 3 point shot all summer, he’s going to be one of the best C’s in the game soon. A lot of pundits say he will be like Clint Capela but he will be more like Anthony Davis imo.

              Yeah, 5 for 15, we’ll see, could be a thing. But Davis used to be a 1, so that is an ambitious comparison! The Nets & Allen should rise though
