Lakers Sign Shammond Williams

Seeking defensive help in the backcourt, the Lakers signed free-agent Shammond Williams, a 6-1 guard who has played with six NBA teams and most recently played in Spain. Williams, 31, snapped up the Lakers' biannual exception and will receive a one-year contract for $1.75 million. The Lakers hope Williams can defend such smaller guards as Steve Nash and Allen Iverson. Williams, 31, has career averages of 6.1 points and 2.5 assists. He last played in the NBA in the 2003-04 season. (Los Angeles Times)
