Default shelden williams says he never worked out for hawks

Williams a sliding factor

NEW YORK - If the Celtics end up landing a slider with the seventh pick in tonight’s draft, they may have to thank Duke’s Shelden Williams for displacing that player.


The 6-foot-9 power forward, who has always had a fan in Danny Ainge, continues to be paired with Atlanta and the No. 5 pick.

Ainge, for one, is giving the report credence.

“I’ve believed that one for a while,” Ainge said yesterday. “He makes sense there.”

Williams isn’t about to discount the Atlanta talk, either. But considering that Williams has been through the same battery of workouts as every other player, there is one odd note about his connection with the Hawks. As he said, “I never worked out for them.”
Though a published report has paired Rudy Gay with Toronto and the No. 1 pick, the UConn forward is either in the dark or should play poker for a living.

“I have no idea where I’m going,” he said. “This draft is so unpredictable. Every one of us has heard we could go in the top two or the top five, but none of us really know.”

great, they promised him the 5th pick but didn't get a workout from him. GREAT JOB ATLANTA!
