After Brooklyn renounced its rights to Williams earlier this month, the center was believed to have agreed to a contract with Shaanxi Xinda of the Chinese National Basketball League, per Asia-Basket.com
. That deal apparently fell though, as Williams is now poised to take his talents to Eastern Europe in the VTB United League. Williams' deal likely contains an opt-out clause that would allow him to pursue any opportunities in the NBA that might arise at a later time. Williams saw most of his action in 2018-19 at the G League level but appeared in five games for the Nets, averaging 3.6 points and 3.8 boards in 5.2 minutes.
