Jayson Williams, acquitted in April of aggravated manslaughter in the shooting death of a limousine driver, worked out with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday.

The 6-foot-10 forward retired from the New Jersey Nets in 2000 following career-ending leg and knee injuries.

He wants to play,'' said Cavaliers coach Paul Silas, who spent three seasons with Williams when he was an assistant with the Nets. We worked him out a little bit, and he can still play. He can certainly help somebody.''

Silas said he did not know if Cleveland would sign Williams.

Williams, 36, was acquitted of aggravated manslaughter but found guilty of covering up the fatal shooting of a hired driver at his mansion in February 2002. The jury deadlocked on a reckless manslaughter count, and Williams is scheduled to be retried on Jan. 10.

It would be nice to see him play again. He made a huge mistake, and stupidly tried to cover it up, but my impression of him is still that he's a good person. Maybe he can comeback and then be involved in some gun safety programs or something.
