Cavs News: Mo Williams to Play One More Season With Cleveland Cavaliers

Mo Williams Cavs

After much deliberation, it looks like Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Mo Williams has decided to play one more year with the Wine and Gold.

Williams, who signed a two-year, $4.3 million deal two seasons ago, exercised his player option for the 2015-16 season. There was some uncertainty over whether or not the Cavs would bring the veteran back, though.

According to Joe Vardon of, the Cavs decided against waiving the 33-year-old prior to the August 31 deadline in order to stretch the $2.2 million salary Williams is owed over the next five years. As a result, this lowers the team’s luxury tax penalties.

Williams averaged 8.2 points and 2.4 assists per game last season and will look to help the Cavs win back-to-back titles in 2016-17.
