More on CJ Williams Free Agency
Shams Charania: Sources: The Timberwolves and swingman C.J. Williams are finalizing a two-way NBA contract. Williams emerged as a rotation wing on a two-way deal with the Clippers last season.
Bobby Marks: CJ Williams fits the critieria for the perfect waiver claim candidate. Williams is on a 1.4M non-guarant. contract that has $125K in protection if not waived by the 1st reg. season game. $1.6M in 2019/20 with $200K in protect. if not waived by the 1st reg. season game.
Brad Turner: Sources: Clippers are expecting to waive forward CJ Williams soon. He joined the Clippers on 2-way contract last season. He played in 38 games, 18 starts. He should be able to find NBA job. Clippers roster will be at 17 after this move, but just 16 contracts are guaranteed
The signing of Sean Kilpatrick to a 10-Day Contract now has the Clippers $545K below the luxury tax. The Clippers still have $538K remaining of the full-mid level exception that could be used down the road for either Tyrone Wallace or CJ Williams. The Clippers can sign either player up to 4 years. Both players are on a Two-Way Contract that will expire on June 30. Williams and Wallace will be a restricted free agent if the Clippers give a qualifying offer by June 30.
The Dallas Mavericks have signed free agent guard C.J. Williams. Williams (6-5, 225) spent the 2015-16 season with JDA Dijon Bourgogne in France, where he averaged 11.9 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 steal per game in 34 games.
