Mo Williams said he's excited to play with the Cavaliers this season.
Williams is about to begin his second stint with the Cavs and is hoping to finish his career in Cleveland. "It feels home," Williams said. "There's just that team where you kind of feel like, 'You know what? I would never want to leave this organization.' At this point of my career now it's just playing winning basketball, playing for championships." The 32-year-old should see plenty of playing time backing up and alongside Kyrie Irving and fantasy owners should have him on their late-rounds draft list. Aug 11 - 1:05 PM

Cavaliers general manager David Griffin officially announced the signing of Mo Williams to a two-year, $4.3 million deal on Friday.

"We’re very excited to welcome Mo back to Cleveland and we feel he will be a great fit with our team," Griffin said. "Mo is a proven, high-caliber playmaker and his ability to space the floor at either guard position will be essential for us." The fact that Griffin expects Williams to see some time at shooting guard bodes well for his fantasy value, as that means he could play alongside Kyrie Irving for stretches of the game. Williams showed that he can still contribute at a high level during his time with the Hornets last season, but it will be tough to rely on him in fantasy leagues while the Cavs are at full strength.

Mo Williams has reached an agreement with the Cavs on a two-year, $4.3 million deal.

The second year of this contract is a player option. With the Cavs adding Williams, that could mean they aren't going to be able to get Jamal Crawford and Joe Johnson. Williams' minutes figure to be in the low 20s next season, so he's not a great fantasy option. He would be worth a pickup if Kyrie Irving (knee) isn't healthy for camp.
Jul 6 - 9:35 PM

Mo Williams could be used in a sign-and-trade deal.

The Hornets aren't going to be bringing Mo back. The Grizzlies have some interest in Mo and maybe they can somehow work a three-way deal with the Clippers and Hornets. The Cavs are also interested in Williams.
Jul 3 - 5:41 PM

The Grizzlies and Mo Williams have been in contact regarding a contract.

There are some reports that Williams is getting close to a three- or four-year deal with Memphis. The Cavs were reportedly close on Mo, but it sounds like the Grizzlies have a decent chance.
Jul 1 - 2:43 PM

Mo Williams reportedly anticipates a meeting with the Cavs, and the team is "very interested" in bringing him back to Cleveland.

Williams will be an unrestricted free agent, and with the Cavs said to be looking for a scoring point guard to come off the bench behind Kyrie Irving, Williams fits the bill. It'll be interesting to see where he lands as a free agent, but his value wouldn't be great in Cleveland.
Jun 30 - 4:07 PM

Mo Williams is "more than interested" in returning to the Cavs next season.

It'll be a little tough for the Cavs to add Mo because they can can only offer the mid-level exception at best, or the veteran minimum. Back in 2010, Williams took to Twitter to express how sad he was about LeBron James leaving for Miami, so he might be willing to let his heart be more involved than his wallet. Williams proved he could play last season and the Cavs do need shooting, so it makes sense.
Jun 19 - 3:57 PM

Mo Williams is not expected to play on Wednesday night against the Raptors.

The Hornets will continue to get a look at Troy Daniels. Williams played well, but it still wasn't enough to get the Hornets into the playoffs.
Apr 15 - 7:16 PM

Mo Williams was a DNP-CD again on Monday.

There was no word on why he's missing games, but the Hornets are probably just getting a look at Troy Daniels. Williams can be dropped in all leagues.
Apr 13 - 11:17 PM

Mo Williams did not leave the Hornets' bench on Sunday.

He played eight minutes on Friday and the Hornets have officially shifted into player-development mode, benching Williams to give more playing time to P.J. Hairston (14 minutes) and Troy Daniels (28 minutes). With two games left on the schedule and the playoffs out of reach, Williams can be cut in all fantasy formats.
Apr 12 - 6:22 PM

Mo Williams played just eight minutes on Friday against the Hawks.

Williams hit 1-of-3 shots for three points, one rebound, four assists and one trey, which is about as well as one can do in that type of outing. Still, the Hornets have nothing to play for and Williams is basically a risk-reward play going forward and nothing more.
Apr 10 - 10:58 PM

Mo Williams scored nine points on 4-of-11 shooting (including a three) with one rebound, two assists and two steals in 25 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Williams has consistently bounced back from bad outings but it's also possible that he has run himself down in the process. With the Hornets fading from playoff contention, watch to make sure he doesn't let up before the finish line.
Apr 3 - 10:45 PM

Mo Williams scored 18 points off the bench against the Hawks on Saturday with one rebound, four assists and four 3-pointers in 22 minutes.

He was technically questionable tonight for knee soreness, but it didn't seem to affect him. With the Hornets having some depth issues at the forward spots, Williams should have a little extra opportunity to score from both guard spots.
Mar 28 - 9:41 PM

Mo Williams (knee) is listed as questionable to play against the Heat on Saturday, according to the lineup sheet.

Coach Steve Clifford didn't say anything about an injury, but Williams has been dealing with knee soreness for a couple games. He should still play, but his owners will want to keep their eyes peeled. We'll have another update shortly.
Mar 28 - 6:28 PM

Mo Williams (sore knee) hit just 8-of-26 shots but everything else was golden on the stat sheet in Friday's double-overtime loss, finishing with 26 points, four treys, nine boards, 10 assists, two steals, two blocks and a 6-of-7 mark from the foul line.

Williams' injuries are both risky and sometimes overplayed in the media, making it hard to know which ones to worry about or not. If he somehow got dropped go and pick him up.
