Jordan Williams Will Play in Poland with Zastal

Jordan Williams (2009-11), locked out from playing his rookie season with the New Jersey Nets, is headed to Europe to play for Zastal Zielona Gora of the Polish PLK league (the top league in that country). Zastal is currently in second place in the league at 7-2. The news was broken on Twitter by Williams's agent, then confirmed over the weekend by Jordan Williams (@Jwilliams20) himself.

While it seems that the deal may not be finalized (translation) until Williams arrives in Poland, the team's coach is already talking about Williams (translation) like he's on the team. The team expects him to be there in time to watch their next game on Saturday, and play in his first game next Wednesday. Excerpts from the two stories:
"We are close to the formal settlement of all issues on Jordan Williams. You could say that we are on the final straight. We will also organize as soon as possible Jordan's arrival in Poland. This will happen probably at the end of this week. Therefore, I have to deny information about Williams' involvement in Saturday's match in Kolobrzeg. Jordan's debut in our uniform will probably come in the home game against Sopot, which will be held November 30," said team president Raphael Czarkowski.

As previously reported, Zastal strengthens its composition. Jordan Williams reaches Poland on Saturday and is to join the team, who await a duel with Kolobrzeg.

Coach Tomasz Jankowski says it is no secret that he hopes for a good game and the young American creates a significant strengthening of our team. According to the coach, Williams has good height and weight, and also has quite a repertoire of moves, can shoot with power, and is strong mentally. At the beginning of his adventure with Zielona, Jordan will fight for a place in the starting five. Tomasz Jankowski also wants to help the player's acclimatization, so if possible, Jordan Williams, shortly after landing in Berlin, will set off to Kolobrzeg, where he will watch his new team's next game.
