Quantcast

via ESPN:
"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."
It's unlikely that Celtics fans will be surprised or bothered by the departure of Shelden Williams. While showing some good flashes during the regular season, he was an outright liability in the playoffs. Under the heightened pressure, he often seemed lost on both sides of the court. The Celtics would've been better off using the veteran minimum on Scal than Shelden.

During the 2009-10 season, Williams averaged 11.1 minutes per game, averaging 3.7 points and 2.7 rebounds.

One of Shelden's greatest contributions as a Celtic came during the NBA Finals, when he held a contest on Twitter with the prize being tickets to Game 5. Contestants were asked to submit videos of their impressions of KG and Nate and Big Baby.

    Shelden could see some PT in Denver as their bigs get injured like nobody's business. He did pretty well for us early in the year, but struggled in the Finals. Good guy though.

    Nice guy but need to develop his experience.

    Great picture Mike- that epitomizes his awful hands and his time with the Celtics. I'm not sure his 2 minute debacle in Game 2 will ever be matched by another player for an NBA Finals performance.

    Good-bye Len Bias ;)

    hey you know what, i think he was pretty good for not getting a lot of playing time. and at least he was a nice guy

  5. JR says:

    Agreed anonymous. He filled his role well while Baby was out and was very professional throughout the year. He didn't play well in the Finals, but can your really blame him entirely? he must of been somewhat rusty. At least he gave his all out there every game, which not everyone did.
