Report: Veteran Guard Mo Williams ‘Strongly Considering’ Retirement

1 Min Read

After winning a championship, what else is there to accomplish in the NBA?

Apparently not much more for Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Mo Williams.

The 13-year veteran is strongly considering retirement, according to Joe Vardon of

Williams, 33, holds career averages of 8.2 points and 2.4 assists. The guard has played for seven different teams, including the Utah Jazz, Milwaukee Bucks, Cavaliers, Los Angeles Clippers, Portland Trail Blazers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Charlotte Hornets.

In just the last five seasons, Williams has played for a different team each year. The constant shuffling around may have pushed the guard to the idea of retiring, especially after capturing a championship in June.

The veteran exercised his player option in the two-year, $4.3 million contract he signed before the start of last season, so the Cavs would owe him $2.2 million in ’16-17. If the team waives Williams before Aug. 31, they have the ability to pay the guard the owed $2.2 million over the next three years.
