NBA Free Agency: Grizzlies, Spurs and Heat After Mo Williams


It’s been a pretty slow market for free agent combo guard Mo Williams. It wasn’t until recently that the 10-year veteran began to garner interest from a few contenders — San Antonio, Miami and Memphis.

First, The Miami Herald‘s Barry Jackson wrote on Miami’s interest:

The Heat is among teams that has shown some interest in free agent point guard Mo Williams. And Williams is said to have interest in Miami if he doesn’t get an offer higher than the minimum.

Then, ESPN’s Marc Stein tweeted that the Grizzlies were definitely in the mix for Williams.

Hoopsworld’s Alex Kennedy officially added San Antonio’s interest as well, if Williams decides on signing for the minimum with a contender.

If Williams chooses, he can opt to re-unite with LeBron James in Miami after playing with him two years in Cleveland — before James left for South Beach.

Williams is a career 38 percent three-point shooter, averaging 13.8 points and 5 assists per game over his 10 seasons in the NBA, but averaged a career high 17.8 points and 44 percent from distance during his first year with James in Cleveland.
