NBA • Former Jazz point guard Mo Williams will sign a contract with the Portland Trail Blazers worth $5.6 million over two years, with a player option the second year, according to multiple reports.
Williams, 30, was drafted No. 47 overall by the Jazz in 2003 and later went on to be an All-Star with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He returned to the Jazz last season via a trade with the Clippers and averaged 12.9 points and 6.2 assists per game. However, he missed 32 games with a torn ligament in his right thumb, and 36 overall.
• Minnesota Timberwolves President Flip Saunders says the team "fully supports" the decision to send first-round draft Shabazz Muhammad home from the NBA's rookie transition program due to a rules violation.
