Warriors Release PG Williams

Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors released seldom-used guard Marcus Williams on Tuesday.

Williams played in nine games with the Warriors, averaging 1.3
points and 1.4 assists after Golden State acquired him in a summer
trade with New Jersey. The club hoped he would win their starting
point guard job, but the former first-round pick never gained the
favor of coach Don Nelson.

Williams hadn't played in a game since Jan. 25.
