Shawne Williams' contract with the Heat is fully guaranteed for the first season and has a team option for the second.
That means he's expected to make the team this season, which seemed questionable on Friday when the team announced the deal. Williams will give the Heat some range from the 3-point line while he'll also provide some decent size. He is not a lock for consistent minutes. Aug 2 - 9:38 AM

Heat sign F Shawne Williams.

The terms of the deal have not been disclosed and it's probably not guaranteed. Williams drew 13 starts with the Lakers last season and even had a 20-point effort on Nov. 29, but he may have just been a system guy with Mike D'Antoni. The Heat have some depth concerns at small forward, so Williams has a chance to make the team.

Shawne Williams' 10-day contract with the Lakers will expire on Sunday.

He logged 35 minutes in a start at PF vs. the Thunder on Thursday and it wouldn't be surprising to see him re-signed, though L.A. may wait until their next game on Wednesday or until the Feb. 20 deadline to maximize their roster flexibility.

Shawne Williams played 35 minutes and had 15 points, nine boards, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers against the Thunder on Thursday.

He started out hot with 13 points in the first half and the Lakers really counted on him tonight. Williams fizzled out back in the 2013 part of the season and he's far from a reliable asset, but it's not a bad idea to pick him up and see what happens in deeper leagues.

Shawne Williams started over Ryan Kelly on Tuesday and hit 4-of-8 shots and two 3-pointers for 11 points, six rebounds and two blocks in a loss to the Jazz.

Kelly had just three points in 18 minutes, but it's hard to say who Mike D'Antoni will start from night to night. If Williams happens to keep the job, he might be worth a pick up. But as of now, he's just another Laker no-name who had a decent night on Tuesday.
Feb 12 - 1:51 AM

Mike D'Antoni will send out a new starting lineup with Shawne Williams at PF for Tuesday's game vs. the Jazz.

Williams has started 11 games this season and the results have been unimpressive, with averages of 4.5 points on 38.8 percent shooting, 4.9 rebounds and 0.9 blocks per game. He may chip in a few 3-pointers and blocks but there's too much risk to use him in 12-team leagues.
Feb 11 - 2:19 PM

Shawne Williams scored four points with three rebounds and two steals in 13 minutes on Friday against the Sixers.

Williams is in his second stint with the Lakers this season and this was his first game since returning to the team. As you can see he didn't do much and we'll let you know if that changes.

Lakers sign F Shawne Williams.

L.A. waived him in early January but they're dusting him off with Jodie Meeks (ankle) and Nick Young (knee) joining the parade of injured Lakers players. Williams even started 11 games earlier this season, but overall he averaged just 5.2 points on 37.7 percent shooting, 4.5 rebounds and 0.8 blocks.
Feb 6 - 4:40 PM

Shawne Williams agreed to terms on a deal with the Los Angeles Defenders on Monday.

The Lakers waived him back on Jan. 7 and apparently he couldn't get any other interest from another team. Williams will likely come up with the Lakers at some point, but he won't have much fantasy value.
Jan 27 - 3:25 PM

Lakers waived F Shawne Williams.

It's a bit of a surprise considering Williams has played 20.2 minutes per game this season and started 11 times, averaging 5.2 points and 4.5 boards. But the Lakers didn't want to guarantee his contract for the whole season, so they'll lean more on Robert Sacre, Jordan Hill and Ryan Kelly. Williams was shooting just 37.7 percent from the field.
Jan 7 - 1:44 PM

Shawne Williams scored 10 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 3-of-4 shots (including three treys) with one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block in 17 minutes.

This is a great line given the playing time but there are way too many 'ifs' here for owners to get too excited about. He's a 14-team value over the past two weeks and that's a good spot to draw the line on where owners should be paying attention to him.
Jan 4 - 2:54 AM

Shawne Williams played 36 minutes against the Bucks on Tuesday with five points, 11 boards, one assist, five blocks and one 3-pointer.

His five blocks set a career high and his 11 boards were just one off his career best from back in 2008 with the Mavericks. The Lakers were down big most of this game and really needed some bodies, so that explains the high minutes. He's not really worth picking up in almost any league despite the outburst to close out 2013.
Jan 1 - 1:21 AM

Shawne Williams double-doubled in 35 minutes of action vs. the Sixers, finishing a disappointing loss with 11 points, three 3-pointers, 10 rebounds, two assists and one block.

This was Williams' third double-digit scoring game of the season. He was averaging a paltry 3.8 points in nine starts prior to this solid outing, and fantasy owners should dismiss this as the result of L.A.'s injury woes and a matchup with the league's worst perimeter defense.

Shawne Williams made his second start in a row against the Heat on Wednesday with three points, five boards and one 3-pointer in 16 minutes.

He's another example to support to claim that minutes and stats clearly trump being in the starting lineup. In his seven previous starts, Williams averaged just 3.9 points, 3.6 boards and 0.6 triples. He's not worth owning in almost any league.

Shawne Williams started against the Suns on Monday and had seven points, six boards and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

Coach Mike D'Antoni has been shuffling his lineup through the year, especially at power forward. Williams only has one game above 10 points on the year, but his minutes have risen to 22 per game this month. It's unclear if the Lakers will continue to start Williams, but he's only scored four points per game in his eight starts this year, so it won't send shockwaves through the fantasy community or anything.
