The assault case against former NBA player Jayson Williams has been continued until Aug. 27.
Williams, 41, was arrested in May after witnesses said he punched another man in the face in a Raleigh nightclub. He was scheduled to appear in Wake County District Court this morning.
He also is awaiting retrial for reckless manslaughter in the 2002 shooting death of his driver.
Williams retired in 2000 after playing nearly a decade for the New Jersey Nets and Philadelphia 76ers.
