EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New Jersey Nets have waived recently acquired forward Shawne Williams.

Nets president Rod Thorn announced the move on Friday, just four days after Williams was acquired from Dallas along with Kris Humphries for veteran forward Eduardo Najera.

Williams averaged 5.2 points and 2.4 rebounds in his four seasons with Indiana and Dallas. The former first-round draft pick of the Pacers in 2006 has not played in a game this season.
