Mo Williams Signs a Two-Year Deal With the Blazers for $5.6 Million
The Portland Trailblazers have had a wonderful offseason thus far. They drafted a stud rookie in C.J. McCollum, signed veteran point guard Earl Watson, picked up a starting center in Robin Lopez, and have now signed Mo Williams on a cheap two-year deal worth $5.6 million, with a player option for his second year.
There were reports that Williams was thinking about the Heat and the Grizzlies, but the veteran 31-year-old ultimately decided to sign with the Blazers. Last year, Williams averaged 12.9 ppg and 6.2 apg, but those number are likely to come down, since he will probably be coming off the bench for Wes Matthews.
This is a coup for the Portland Trailblazers however. The Blazers now have a solid backcourt that can help them score, whenever LaMarcus Aldridge goes to the bench for a rest. And if the Mo Williams experiment fails, the deal was only for two-years at a very cost efficient price.
