It's not as though they just had this notion to waive him today.
I'm guessing that they were taking their time evaluating him and just weren't sure at the time of the deadline, but it could be that Nelly didn't like him and so did this as a kind of punishment. Though the interest in him from playoff teams would probably have been weak. Maybe if the Hawks don't like Bibby's back-up they give him a look, but then again, Williams hasn't shown much himself.
