The Mavericks announced today that they’ve signed free agent guard C.J. Williams to the final spot on the 2016 training camp roster, via Earl K. Sneed:
Per the Mavericks, the 6’ 5” Williams spent last season overseas with JDA Dijon Bourgogne in France, where he played in 34 games and averaged 11.9 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 steal per game. He’s also spent time with teams in Cyprus and in Italy.
Williams played college ball at North Carolina State, where he averaged 6.1 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 0.6 steals in 23.1 minutes per game. Although he went undrafted after graduating in 2012, he’s done stints in the D-League with the Los Angeles D-Fenders and was most recently a member of the San Antonio Spurs’ summer league team, competing in both Salt Lake City and Las Vegas.
This is Williams’ first NBA contract, but with the Mavs’ current depth in the backcourt, don’t be surprised if we don’t see him on the team this season.
