Shelden Williams Signs With French Team Elan Chalon


Forward Shelden Williams, who averaged 4.6 points and 6 rebounds in 58 games with the New Jersey Nets last season, has agreed to a contract with French team Elan Chalon. Over the course of six NBA seasons, the former Duke University standout has played with seven teams. Via Euroleague.net: “Elan Chalon fortified its frontcourt with the signing of big man Shelden Williams. Though this will be his first season playing in Europe, Williams has the right people to fall back on for knowledge; His brother-in-law is three-time European champion and two-time Euroleague MVP Anthony Parker. He was a college basketball star at Duke University, where Williams remains the Blue Devils’ career leader in rebounds (1,262) and blocked shots (422). Williams will not join the club at its training camp this week, but should travel to France over the weekend.”

    I’m still trying to figure out how he pulled Candice Parker.

  • LakeShow

    He averaged 6 boards last year?
    I’m floored…
    Although, I guess that’s bad when Rashard Lewis rebounding numbers are impressive from your PF/C.

    You know they met at young ages right? That’s the difference. They didn’t just meet in the last 2/3 years. They were dating since her Junior year and his senior year. So that would be about a 7 years relationship.

    When the Hawks drafted this guy, was there anyone who actually thought he’d pan out to ANYTHING?

  • Twinparadox

    Maybe they needed a landlord.

    I Thought AT LEAST when he got drafted he could be a 10/10 and 2 blocks a game kinda like what emeka is now to be honest.. but now even that’s a stretch :S

  • Caboose

    Haha I love optimism! Yeah, it could have been possible, but when I watched Paul Millsap wreck him in college, it was kind of a death knell for his NBA stock.

  • Caboose

    It’s easy to get rebounds when your forehead has its own gravitational pull.

  • RKJ92

    Ya.. you can’t really call yourself the landlord when you get wrecked by a 6’8 extremely undersized PF and your 6’10-6’11 Lol!

  • LakeShow

    LMAO
