Clippers sign ex-Raptor G Williams to 10-day contract

LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Clippers signed former
Toronto Raptors guard Alvin Williams to a 10-day contract, the team
announced Saturday.

Williams, an eight-year NBA veteran who played with Portland and
Toronto, has averaged 9.1 points and 4.1 assists in 458 career
regular-season games.

He did well in Toronto until injuries sidelined him. He averaged
a career-high 13.2 points in the 2002-03 season, and is also the
Raptors' all-time assists leader with 1,791 and holds the team's
longest consecutive games streak.

Williams missed the 2004-05 season while recovering from knee
surgery and was released on July 25, 2006.

Williams was selected by Portland in the second round of the
1997 NBA draft with the 48th overall selection. Williams joined
Toronto in a trade midway through the 1997-98 season.
