Mavs trade Jones

LOL. I would have been happy if they said they waived him. Instead they got a younger player with potential, 2 second round draft picks and cash.
Although Williams seems to be a trouble maker, this is Dallas...the city that is apparently a rehab for trouble makers.



DALLAS- The Dallas Mavericks announced today that they acquired forward Shawne Williams from the Indiana Pacers in exchange for guard Eddie Jones and two future second-round draft picks.

Williams (6-9, 225) was selected by Indiana with the 17th overall pick in the 2006 draft. The third-year forward averaged 6.7 points and 2.7 rebounds in 65 games (3 starts) last season with the Pacers improving on his rookie numbers of 3.9 points and 1.8 rebounds per game in 2006-07.

A native of Memphis, Tenn., Williams played one year of college basketball at the University of Memphis before declaring himself eligible for the 2006 NBA Draft. As a Tiger, Williams helped lead Memphis to a 33-4 record while averaging 13.2 points and 6.2 rebounds and being named Conference USA Freshman of the Year. In his lone collegiate postseason, Williams was named Most Valuable Player of the Conference USA Tournament after averaging 18.0 points and 6.7 rebounds.

"On behalf of the Mavericks organization, we would like to thank Eddie Jones for the valuable contributions he has brought to our team," President of Basketball Operations/General Manager Donnie Nelson said. "We appreciated his professionalism both on and off the court as a Maverick. Shawne Williams is an exciting young prospect with a bright future. We look forward to developing him into the player he aspires to be."

Cool deal, trade one player that sits on the bench for another and get some free draft picks in return.

I've given up on the mavs. They are so frustrating. Getting rid of Jones is a good start though.

I'll show your president the same respect you showed mine.

I did too, but I can tell you Carlisle it the shit and knows how to use players strong points. Besides the players had an attitude towards Avery. This guy will actually use Kidd as an advantage.
