Williams played with the Cavaliers from 2008 until 2011 and was named to his only All-Star team during the 2008-09 season. Williams paired up with LeBron James to lead Cleveland to a franchise single-season record 66 wins during that season.
While his best years are behind him, he remains an effective scoring option off the bench provided he plays limited minutes. In stints with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Charlotte Hornets last season, the veteran guard averaged 14.2 points per game on 39.7 percent from the field and 34.2 percent from beyond the arc. He is a career 13.4 PPG scorer, while shooting 43.4 percent from the field and 37.9 percent from three-point range over his 12-year NBA career.
With the Williams signing, he is now expected to be the primary backup at point guard.
