The Chinese Basketball Association season is currently in its playoff semifinals, meaning a slew of former NBA players could be available as free agents in the coming weeks. There has been interest in former Celtic Lester Hudson, who scored 40 points in Xinjiang’s victory over Dongguan. Former Sacramento King Bobby Brown tallied 45 points in that game. Other ex-NBAers in China are Shelden Williams, Delonte West, James Singleton, Donte Green, Yi Jianlian, Dominique Jones, and Hamed Haddadi.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Free agent Shelden Williams, who played with seven NBA teams, has agreed with Tianjin in China on a deal, source tells Yahoo Sports.
Shelden Williams could continue his career in China. Former 5th overall pick of the 2006 NBA Draft has played his first season overseas with Elan Chalon averaging 13.3ppg and 7.5rpg in Pro A and 11.3ppg and 7.6rpg in Euroleague.
Fenerbahce Ulker made another addition to their squad before TOP 16 and bought Elan Chalon’s American big man Shelden Williams. Fenerbahce will pay 350.000 € buy-out fee to French side Elan Chalon who still had Shelden Williams under contract.
Shelden Williams: Whats going on everybody?!?! Just updating my page to let everyone know that I am playing for Elan Chalon France this year!!
But sources with knowledge of the Magic’s approach say they’re remaining patient and that all the familiar teams — Houston, Atlanta, the Lakers, and the Nets among them — remain in play. That doesn’t bode well for the Nets, whose reliance on numerous free agents in their proposal is complicated by the end of the league’s free agency moratorium at 12:01 Eastern Time Wednesday. While Humphries has the same agent as Howard and is expected to cooperate in a Howard trade so long as he gets a multi-year deal, free agents who have been part of Nets’ various proposals and may be needed to make the money work — a la Shelden Williams, Sundiata Gaines and Armon Johnson — will be able to sign with other teams.
The tentacles of the proposed deal stretched across more than 10 players and three teams on Monday, with the Nets recruiting a fourth team to take on guard MarShon Brooks in exchange for an additional draft pick to send to Orlando. Nevertheless, multiple complexities need to be resolved to complete the deal, including the negotiation of contracts for four of the players in the proposed trade: Brook Lopez, Kris Humphries, Damion James and Shelden Williams. In the proposed deal, Howard, Jason Richardson and Earl Clark would be sent to Brooklyn, and the Magic would receive the Nets’ Lopez, James, Williams and Armon Johnson, Cleveland’s Luke Walton and three future first-round picks, sources said. Cleveland would receive Orlando’s Quentin Richardson, Brooklyn’s Sundiata Gaines, Humphries (on a one-year guaranteed deal), a first-round pick and $3 million from the Nets. Brooklyn also is in talks with the Los Angeles Clippers to exchange Brooks for an additional first-round pick to send to the Magic. If the Clippers decline to participate, other teams are in position to take on Brooks, sources said.

But promises do exist — Olshey said when he was working for Tellem, they received promises for Shelden Williams, Marcus Banks, Kendrick Perkins, Kedrick Brown and Robert Swift. Sometimes, the promises don’t work out — Swift in 2004 got a promise from Boston at No. 14, but he was chosen by Seattle at No. 12.
Williams may soon get his wish to spend more time with his baby girl. He said Parker is considering discontinuing overseas play once Lailaa starts school. More daddy-daughter time will give Williams a chance to work on a part of his game that is severely lacking — fashion sense. “As she gets older, it’s all about looking good with the outfits and her hair,” Williams said. “I try to match the leggings with her Nike shirt. But when in doubt, I fall back on a white T-shirt and jeans. Candace doesn’t like that.” “When he does Lailaa’s hair, I’m like, ‘Why did you let my baby walk out the house looking like that?'” Parker said. “Sometimes he will just let it flow or dump the brush in hair lotion and pull it back with a headband on it.” His skills as Daddy The Stylist may need work, but in every other realm of daddy daycare he’s an all-star. “He is a great father, very hands-on, and she is in love with him,” Parker said.
Because her mother is the face of the WNBA, Lailaa garnered magazine covers before she was even born. In 2009, her mother became the first pregnant woman to appear on the cover of ESPN The Magazine. “Lailaa loves to perform when we go to my game or Candace’s game, and she starts dancing and everyone starts paying attention to her,” Williams said. “She’s a ham and she knows it.”
Nets PR Dept.: Shelden Williams (eye injury), probable for tomorrow vs. Washington. Jordan Farmar (sore right groin) is out for remainder of season.
Andy Vasquez: For those asking: Nets have offered no specifics on Shelden Williams. Been told only that it’s a right eye injury & next update is April 5.
Nets rookie Jordan Williams took an elbow in the head from Pacers center Roy Hibbert and suffered what was called a mild concussion. He was around by the end of the night. Shelden Williams, however, who suffered a right eye injury, was not. Shelden Williams was sent to Hackensack University Medical Center for further examinations, and the Nets sounded ominous about his status. “We haven’t received an update on Shelden,” said coach Avery Johnson, who was hoping to hear some news Wednesday night. “Jordan had a mild — really mild — concussion, so we took him out for observations. We think he’s going to be OK. … [But] we’re really concerned about Shelden.”
Conor Orr: Nets say Shelden Williams is out till at least April 5 with right eye injury. No details as to description of injury. Not on trip West.

The New Jersey Nets have signed free agent forward Shelden Williams, Nets General Manager Billy King announced today. Per team policy, terms of the contract were not released. “We are pleased to add Shelden to our roster,” said King. “He is a proven veteran who will add depth to our frontcourt rotation.”
The popularity of the Williams name continues for the Nets as 6-9 Shelden Williams, who finished up last season with the Knicks is expected in tomorrow. Williams agreed to a one-year deal ($884,000) yesterday.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Free agent forward Shelden Williams will sign a one-year deal with the New Jersey Nets, league sources tell Y! Sports.
Dubi Pick: After failing to secure Jordan Farmar, Macc Haifa are negotiating w/ @sheldenwilliams (Shelden Williams) for a full year deal.
Shelden Williams, most recently with the New York Knicks, is also working out in Santa Monica. The lockout doesn’t seem to be a worry for the former Duke Blue Devil. “I finally get family time so I can’t complain,” said Williams. “Honestly, I’m not even thinking about [the lockout].” His daughter Lailaa (with wife and WNBA star Candace Parker) turned two in May. Williams hopes at some point to add a sibling but he and Parker have yet to work out the timing. “We’re going to add to the family but we have to plan it,” said Sheldon. “My wife is playing in the summer time and she can’t take off too much time. It has to be strategic.”
Shelden Williams: Thanks for all the concern and well wishes. Please everyone just keep @Candace_Parker in your prayers!!
The Knicks also have a decision to make with Billy Walker, who has a team option of $916,000. They likely will let Shelden Williams, Jared Jeffries and Roger Mason walk.
Shelden Williams: Well another tough lost but the team showed a lot with chauncey and amare being out!!!
Steve Adamek: D’Antoni on the Barron Conspiracy: “I like Earl. He’s a good guy. But is he better than Shelden Williams?”
In order to create a roster spot for Jeffries, the Knicks will have to cut a player. The most likely candidate is former lottery pick Shelden Williams, who came over from Denver in the Carmelo Anthony trade. Renaldo Balkman – another piece in the Anthony deal – is the second most likely candidate to be released.
Anthony will sign the contract extension to complete the deal, which sends four players and three draft picks to Denver in exchange for Melo, point guard Chauncey Billups and reserves Anthony Carter, Shelden Williams and Renaldo Balkman.
The Nets and Nuggets are discussing a deal that would send Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Melvin Ely, Renaldo Balkman and Shelden Williams to the Nets for Derrick Favors, Devin Harris, Troy Murphy, Ben Uzoh and four first-round draft picks, a league source with knowledge of the talks told Yahoo! Sports on Thursday night. Now, the pressure could be back on the New York Knicks to sweeten their offer and get Anthony before the Feb. 24 trade deadline. Knicks president Donnie Walsh has seemed willing to let Anthony go into free agency, when New York can try to sign him in the summer. The Knicks and Nuggets have negotiated steadily in recent weeks, but Denver has been frustrated with New York’s reluctance to part with key young players in a deal.
Nothing is official yet, and Nuggets executives have rarely spoken publicly about their intentions during the drawn-out trade talks. But sources have said Denver is discussing a blockbuster trade that would send not only Melo to New Jersey but also all-star guard Chauncey Billups, in addition to unloading Al Harrington and expendable bench players such as Anthony Carter and Shelden Williams.
Shelden Williams: I have been nominated for Tweeter of the Year award on HoopsHype. help vote for me yall!!
The Celtics considered bringing (Shelden) Williams back, but they were in the hunt for big men, ultimately luring Shaquille O’Neal and Jermaine O’Neal. Williams said he couldn’t wait on the Celtics to make a decision. “They were going on and on about the whole Shaq thing and putting everything else on hold,’’ Williams said. “Two other teams came calling and I had to do what’s best for me.’’
Except for brief periods of time, after a trade or the release of someone, I cannot recall any player’s sphere of influence overlapping lockers until visiting Denver. Now I know three. Chauncey Billups and Kenyon Martin each has jurisdiction over two cubicles, whereas ‘Melo’s monopoly only will be split for a price. “Shelden Williams wanted to move across the room into one of the empties,” Harrington chuckled, “but ‘Melo told him he’d have to buy it.”
Williams said he also got minimum contract offers from Chicago and Utah before signing with Denver. He impressed the Nuggets with averages of 12.6 points and 7.9 rebounds in the preseason before erupting in the opener. “I just tried to be aggressive on the glass and tried to take as much as I can,” Williams said. “Fortunately, it worked out well.” It sure did. “It told him he played like Moses Malone as far as his rebounding,” said Nuggets guard Anthony Carter.
Williams, seeking to find a home after playing for five teams in four NBA seasons, scored 21 points and grabbed 14 rebounds after replacing Harrington. Four of his seven field goals came on mid-range jump shots and he was aggressive enough to get to the free-throw line 10 times. “With Birdman and Kenyon being out, I think this is a great opportunity for me to actually come in and play,” Williams said. “This is a great situation for me. I’ve just got to continue to play well and hopefully it’ll work out.”
“Denver is a great fit for Shelden because they need frontcourt help,” said Williams’ agent, Lee Melchionni. “He provides an element of toughness, rebounding and intangibles. . . . And being able to play in the playoffs is an experience that you take with you to any team that you go to.”
For the third consecutive offseason, Anthony Carter signed a one-year, league-minimum deal with the Nuggets, doing so Wednesday with power forward Shelden Williams, who comes to Denver by way of Boston. The 6-foot-9, 250-pound Williams, who played sparingly for the Eastern Conference champion Celtics, will make $915,852, as set by the minimum contract pay scale. Carter, who backed up Chauncey Billups and Ty Lawson last season, will make $1.352 million.
The Nuggets made two more moves on Wednesday to solidify their bench. A league source told ESPN.com’s John Hollinger that the team has agreed to terms with forward Shelden Williams and guard Anthony Carter and is expected to sign both later in the day. Both deals would be for the league’s veteran minimum salary.
The Nuggets bolstered their front court Wednesday by agreeing to terms with Al Harrington and Shelden Williams, while also bringing back one of their own free agents, guard Anthony Carter, people with knowledge of the deals confirmed to CBSSports.com. In giving the full mid-level exception to Harrington — five years, $34 million — the Nuggets are now out of the running to match the Raptors’ four-year. $18.8 million offer sheet for restricted free agent Linas Kleiza. Harrington, 29, is a good teammate and proven scorer whose presence will help the Nuggets survive the absence of injured big men Kenyon Martin and Chris “Birdman” Andersen at the start of the 2010-11 season. But Harrington’s erratic, often puzzling offensive play could present a problem for a Denver team that already has its share of free spirits.
