Former Lakers forward Shawne Williams on Monday was named NBA Development League performer of the week.
Playing for the Lakers' D-League affiliate, Williams is the third D-Fender to win the honor this season, joining Manny Harris, who also played with the Lakers this season, and Terrence Williams.
At 25-15, the D-Fenders are in first place in the West Division, having a better season than the 22-44 Lakers.
Williams signed with the Lakers last summer on a partially guaranteed contract. He was cut in January but later rejoined the team on a pair of 10-day contracts.
Through 36 appearances with the Lakers, Williams averaged 5.6 points and 4.6 rebounds a game.
