Warriors Adding Another D-Leaguer

It’s looking like Warriors coach Don Nelson will get to use his “Golden State D-Leaguers” like again.
The Warriors got another exemption from the league and plan on using it to add Reggie Williams of the D-League. The move hasn’t happened yet and wouldn’t until Tuesday, so the Warriors can maximize his 10-day contract.
Williams, 23, would be the 16th player on the roster. So, in order to keep him past 20 days (the Warriors could sign him to a second 10-day contract after the first expires), they would have to cut someone. That would almost assuredly be forward Devean George, should it get that far.
Williams is averaging 26.4 on 57.6 percent shooting. He also shoots 41 percent from 3 and 82.4 percent from the free throw line. In 40 minutes of action, averages 5.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists.
Nelson has said on several occasions that he needs a small forward, and that was before starter Corey Maggette went down with a hamstring injury. Guard Anthony Morrow has been starting at SF, which Nelson desnt like.
The Warriors have had SFs Cartier Martin and Coby Karl from th D-League.
