Three-time Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams has agreed to a one-year, $5 million deal with the Atlanta Hawks, agent Wallace Prather of Par-Lay Sports and Entertainment told HoopsHype.
Williams had significant interest from several contenders, including the Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors, and Milwaukee Bucks, league sources told HoopsHype.
Though the three-time Sixth Man of the Year has declined from his peak, Williams still offers scoring punch off the bench at age 34.
The Hawks won’t overextend him. They also traded for Delon Wright, another solid backup point guard. Williams and Wright can play together, though Atlanta also has strong depth at shooting guard with Bogdan Bogdanovic, Kevin Huerter and Cam Reddish.
