ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Hawks have signed former UNLV and Texas guard Donovan Williams to a two-way contract. The 21-year-old Williams averaged 15.5 points in 26 games, including 19 starts, for the Long Island Nets of the NBA G League this season. Williams was undrafted out of UNLV after playing two years at Texas. Williams replaces Jarrett Culver, who was placed on waivers on Saturday after playing in 10 games, including one start, with Atlanta. The 6-foot-6 Williams was signed by the Brooklyn Nets on Oct. 12 and was waived on Oct. 16. Williams is a native of Houston.
