Sean Williams returns to D-League

DALLAS – Center Sean Williams is headed north on the tollway to Frisco again.

Williams will return to the D-League Texas Legends now that Brendan Haywood and Brandan Wright are ready to return from injuries.

The 6-foot-11, 235-pound Williams, who has spent most of the season with the Legends, did a decent job under difficult circumstances while filling in for the Mavs over the last week. He averaged 3.8 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.0 block in 11.3 minutes per game in four losses.

The Legends, who are co-owned by Mavs president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson, have been red hot while the Mavs have struggled, winning their last eight games.
