Reports: Utah Jazz free agent Mo Williams to sign 2-year deal with Portland Trail Blazers
According to Yahoo! Sports, Mo Williams will sign a two-year deal with the Trail Blazers worth just less than $3 million per year.
The agreement signifies the definitive end of Mo Williams' second stint with the Utah Jazz. During his first season with the Jazz since he was a rookie, Williams averaged 12.9 points and 6.2 assists. He was sidelined for more than 30 games of the season, however, with a thumb injury.
Originally drafted by Utah in the second round of the 2003 NBA Draft, Williams signed a free agent contract after Utah declined to renew his one-year rookie deal. From there, Williams went to Cleveland where he played with LeBron James and was named an NBA All-Star guard.
Since departing Cleveland, Williams has been an NBA journeyman. Portland will be the third team in three years for which he will have played, the other two being Utah and the L.A. Clippers.
According to Yahoo!, Williams will have the ability to opt out of the second year of his contract.
