The Nets suspended Sean Williams for two games for conduct detrimental to the team.
It was reported here today the Nets probably would do something after Williams was arrested Monday in Denver following an altercation at a mall during which he allegedly threw a computer monitor and caused roughly $1,300 in damages. Williams was unavailable for Monday's game at the Nuggets because he was in jail.
It was Williams' second arrest in 30 days. He also was arrested for violating a trespass order at Boston College, but the charges were later dropped.
Williams is suspended for tonight's game at the Knicks and Friday's against the Heat. You also have to wonder if Williams, who rejoined the rotation on Feb. 23 and had been playing well, will ever play again for the Nets.
There is no word on whether they will waive Williams outright, which a source said yesterday they could at some point. But it might be hard for coach Lawrence Frank to play him after Williams let the team down the way he did in Denver in what was a very critical game.
Williams could be running out of strikes with the Nets anyway.
Earlier this season, Williams was sent down to the NBDL, but didn't want to be there and became too much of a distraction that the Colorado 14ers coaching staff requested the Nets recall him.
Williams also could face a league suspension if he is convicted. He pleaded not guilty at a hearing yesterday and is scheduled to appear in court May 1 for another hearing. Williams faces charges of felony criminal mischief and misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
