INDIANAPOLIS: Shawne Williams is getting a new start in the NBA.
Dogged by three incidents involving police in the past 13 months, the 6-foot-9 forward has been traded by the Indiana Pacers to Dallas for future draft picks, cash and possibly another player, his agent said Friday.
Williams will be reunited with new Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle, who coached the Pacers when Indiana drafted him out of Memphis in the first round in 2006.
"He's excited to get to a team and get a new shot and kind of get reinvigorated," agent Happy Walters said. "He loves Larry (Bird), so he's sad to leave Larry and the Pacers because he has friends there, but he's excited with a new start."
