Jordan Williams assigned to the Springfield Armor

Nets General Manager Billy King announced today that Jordan Williams has been assigned to the D-League affiliate Springfield Armor. This is the first player assigned to the Armor this season.

Williams, a Torrington, Conn. native, played two seasons at the University of Maryland before being drafted by New Jersey with the 36th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. The 6-foot-10 forward averaged 1.0 point and 1.5 rebounds per game in six games with the Nets.

Williams is expected to play for the Armor Thursday night at home against the Maine Red Claws.
