Kevin Williams wanted a call from the New England Patriots, and he got one.
Williams visited the Patriots on Thursday after spending his entire career in Minnesota.
The 33-year-old can still stuff the run up the middle, but he's simply not the player he once was and his pass-rushing skills have diminished. The Patriots will still probably get the most out of him which is something at which they excel. We'll wait to hear about an impending contract offer.ANALYST: Howard Bender
The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
