Retired NBA star Jayson Williams could soon be released from prison after serving time in New York and New Jersey.

The Hunterdon County Democrat in New Jersey reported Monday that Williams is currently serving a one-year term at the Eric M. Taylor Center in East Elmhurst for driving while intoxicated. His projected release date is April 15.

Williams had already served an 18-month prison term in New Jersey for aggravated assault. The 44-year-old drove his SUV into a tree in Manhattan a week after accepting a plea deal stemming from the shotgun death of a limo driver in his New Jersey mansion in 2002.

The former New Jersey Net was a top player with a six-year, $86 million contract before a leg injury forced him to retire in 2000.
