Celtics beat writer Gary Washburn believes Jordan Williams "will not be out of work (for) long."
Washburn is just speculating, but it would be surprising if another team wasn't willing to gamble on the big man who was just waived on Monday. He was the No. 36 pick in 2011 and is just 21 years old.

The Hawks waived big man Jordan Williams on Monday.
The Hawks have now waived two of the five players they acquired in the Joe Johnson trade, and the No. 36 pick from two years ago will likely find himself a camp invite. That the Hawks aren't interested in him, however, doesn't look good for Williams.

Jordan Williams double-doubled in the Nets' blowout loss to the Raptors on Thursday, scoring 10 points on 5-of-13 shooting with 10 rebounds and a block.
The Nets scored 67 points on the night and ensured that they will have the sixth-worst record heading into the draft. MarShon Brooks scored nine points on 4-of-17 shooting with four boards, one assist, and two steals, Gerald Green had 10 points on 4-of-13 shooting with five boards and a block, Johan Petro showed up to go for nine and 12, Armon Johnson (11 points, five assists) outplayed Sundiata Gaines (seven points, two assists), and Anthony Morrow hit three triples for 11 points.

Jordan Williams left Saturday's game with an upset stomach, finishing with four points, six rebounds and two steals in 21 minutes.
Williams didn't return and we'll call him iffy for Monday's game. Even with a starting job in hand, the Nets' rookie is not worth gambling on in fantasy leagues.

Jordan Williams started on Monday against the Heat, scoring two points on 1-of-5 shooting with four rebounds and a steal in 32 minutes.
It's highly disappointing to see the minutes come without production, but that's life as a relatively unheralded rookie in the NBA. Williams just put up 12 points, 14 boards, three steals, and a block on Saturday, so owners may want to be patient in advance of Wednesday's game against the Knicks -- though a matchup with Tyson Chandler doesn't sound all that appealing.

Jordan Williams will start at center in Monday's game against the Heat.
The Nets are finally giving in and getting a longer look at their young pieces, so Shelden Williams will come off the bench. Jordan Williams has averaged 7.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.0 blocks over the last seven games even though he's seen just 21.4 minutes. There's sleeper appeal here for deep-leaguers.

Jordan Williams caught fire for 12 points, a career-high 14 rebounds, three steals and a block off the Nets bench on Saturday.
Kris Humphries was rather quiet with six points and 10 boards, and Williams got it done. He also had 13 points and five boards on Friday, and should be in line for solid run down the stretch.
