Williams, who grew up in the Dallas suburb of The Colony, signed a two-year, $10 million deal Tuesday. He has a player option in the second year.
Analysis: Dallas had a deal with Williams on Friday and had to wait for him to clear waivers. It was a boost for the Mavericks soon after free agent center DeAndre Jordan reneged on a deal to sign with them. The Nets bought out the 31-year-old Williams to lower their payroll. They owed him $43 million in the final two years of the contract.

The team and Williams came to a buyout agreement Friday, and the Nets made the announcement Saturday. General manager Billy King thanked the point guard for ''everything he gave the organization over the past 4 1/2 years.''
Analysis: Williams grew up in a Dallas suburb and nearly signed with the Mavericks three years ago. Two people with knowledge of the arrangement told The Associated Press on Friday that he will join them this time once he passes through waivers. Williams averaged 13 points last season, the lowest since he was a rookie, and has struggled with injuries since signing a five-year, $98.5 million contract in 2012.
