Nets assign problem kid Williams to D-League team

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.(AP) -- The New Jersey Nets have assigned problem-child Terrence Williams to their NBA Development League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

General Manager Billy King announced the move on Friday, saying the second-year guard will benefit from playing for the Springfield Armor while he is on the team's inactive list.

The Nets put Williams on the inactive list for repeated violations of team rules. The team's sixth man missed Tuesday's home game against Atlanta and Wednesday's game in Boston. King said he discussed the move with coach Avery Johnson.

"I feel the best course of action for Terrence and the team at this time is for him to play in the D-League," King said. "He is currently on the inactive list and this move will allow him to play until he is once again placed on the active list. There is no timetable on his return to the active list, and Terrence's future status will be addressed at the appropriate time."

Williams was selected 11th overall by New Jersey in the first round of last year's draft. The Louisville product has appeared in 86 career games, averaging 8.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.9 assists. He was averaging 6.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists.
