   We're Adding A Little Something To This Month's Sales Contest. As You All Know, First Prize Is A Cadillac El Dorado.

In his rookie year, [Danny] Green played only 115 minutes. A large part of the reason why he sat was the presence of Jawad Williams, who took most of whatever available wing minutes there were behind Anthony Parker, Jamario Moon and the guy who left. Hot Wad played 742 minutes on the season, although he did not play them well, shooting below 40% from the field and rarely passing or rebounding. Yet the Cavs benched Green in favour of Williams at almost every possible opportunity, and have brought Williams back with a view to doing it again. Minutes, again, may be tough for Green to find. Even though that guy with the TV show has left, Joey Graham has been brought in to play small forward, and Christian Eyenga has been brought over to begin his transformation into the next Kirk Snyder. Cleveland's small forward and shooting guard rotations are not good, but there are nonetheless many options there. For Green to get any minutes - and for him to even make the roster - he'll need to show he belongs in a mix that already involves Parker, Moon, Graham, Eyenga, Williams and Boobs Gibson.

   15 More Ten Day Contract Candidates (Because Apparently 101 Wasn't Enough After All)

Jawad Williams - An accidental omission from the previous list, Williams re-signed with the Cavaliers this offseason and began the season in the team's rotation. Unfortunately, all this resulted in is the second worst PER of anyone to have played more than 200 minutes. Williams was waived to avoid his contract becoming guaranteed, and he remains unsigned. As he ages, Williams is becoming increasingly reliant (confident) in a jumpshot that just isn't brilliant, and his defensive intensity isn't trending upwards. However, on certain nights, he can be a useful bench scoring threat.

   The best of what's left

Jawad Williams - Williams has spent the last two years with the Cavaliers, playing only 20 minutes in his first season but getting 742 more last season. He developed his game in the Developmental League, becoming a versatile and polished offensive player with NBA size and athleticism. Williams is currently a restricted free agent of the Cavs, who might bring him back, even though he shot less than 40% last year and even though they just brought in Joey Graham.

   Chicago's Last Resort Offseason Plan That Still Manages To Avoid Signing Joe Johnson

Jawad Williams - Williams developed his game in the Developmental League, becoming a versatile and polished offensive player with NBA size and athleticism. It's a bit generous for me to list him as a "shooter" when his jumpshot is in fact rather average, but you can understand why I didn't think Jawad Williams deserved his own category.
