The New Jersey Nets have waived Travis Outlaw using the league’s new amnesty clause.  The team has also signed free agent Shawne Williams for a two-year, $6 million deal, ESPN reports.

Outlaw, an eight-year veteran, averaged 9.2 points and four rebounds per game, playing in all 82 games last season.  The forward has four years and $28 million remaining on his contract.  By waiving Outlaw under the amnesty clause, the club will receive salary cap relief. Williams, 25, played with the New York Knicks last season averaging 7.1 points and 3.7 rebounds per game last season.
