LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Clippers have waived guard C.J. Williams, who was a two-way player for them last season.

He averaged 5.5 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 38 games for the Clippers. Williams appeared in 16 games for the team’s G League affiliate in Ontario, California, averaging 16.5 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists.

The Clippers had 18 players on their roster and can only carry 15 into the season, making Williams’ non-guaranteed contract an easy call. He played well enough that other teams may well have interest.

Williams played in France, Greece and Italy and in the G League before signing with the Clippers last October. The 28-year-old guard played four years at North Carolina State.
