Mo Williams will not play on Wednesday.
He's likely just getting rest and we'll let you know if anything comes up on the injury front. Williams might actually have some low-end fantasy value and compare to Jamal Crawford, but fantasy owners in standard leagues might want to swing for the fences instead. Oct 22 - 6:56 PM

Mo Williams nearly double-doubled off the bench on Tuesday with 13 points, nine assists, two steals and a 3-pointer on 5-of-9 shooting Tuesday.

This is a reminder that Williams can still play. He's going to have trouble getting a lot of run behind Ricky Rubio, but could be a source of instant offense off the Wolves bench. If you're desperate at point guard late in your draft, he might be worth a look.

Mo Williams turned back the clock on Friday with a vintage performance, scoring 19 points to go along with six boards, seven assists, and three steals.

While Williams came off the bench, head coach Flip Saunders has stated that the guard will likely see a lot of first team run alongside Ricky Rubio. Williams is certainly worth a late-round flier in most leagues.

The Wolves will rest veteran G Mo Williams on Tuesday.

Kevin Martin (strained adductor) has already been ruled out for this game, so coach Flip Saunders should get an extended look at rookie Zach LaVine, as well as veterans J.J. Barea, Corey Brewer and Chase Budinger.

Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders said that he envisions Mo Williams playing alongside Ricky Rubio down the stretch.

Saunders added that he likes the idea of having Williams' experience and leadership on the floor alongside Rubio in the fourth quarter. The 31-year-old doesn't hold a ton of fantasy value after averaging 9.7 point, 4.3 assists, and 1.1 three-pointers with Portland last season, but a potential fourth quarter role should help keep him relevant in deeper leagues.

Timberwolves sign G Mo Williams.

"We are excited to bring Mo into the fold this season," head coach Flip Saunders said. "His veteran leadership and excellent three-point shooting ability will be a valuable addition to our team." He will likely run the point for the second unit, which means rookie Zach LaVine may have to play off the ball more in his rookie campaign. Williams isn't worth a draft pick in standard leagues.

Mo Williams said on Tuesday that all the Blazers fans who are bashing him for leaving "don't have a clue what's going on."

"If [the] Portland Trailblazers wanted to sign Mo Williams, in all retrospect, they could have," Williams said on Twitter. "That's [going to] be my first [and] last [time] addressing that. It's a business." Speaking in the third person aside, there was little reason to bring Williams back and he was clearly not part of their plans, especially after C.J. McCollum looked great in Las Vegas. Williams was a phenomenal pickup last season for the Blazers and he'll have similar chance to perform with the Wolves in 2014-15.

Mo Williams has reportedly agreed to a one-year, $3.75 million deal with the Timberwolves.

Williams won't have much value in the Timberwolves crowded backcourt, but things could change depending on how the pieces are moved in a Kevin Love deal. It's an interesting move for Williams as he had previously stated he was looking for a long-term deal, but perhaps the market did not present such an opportunity for Mo.

The Dallas Mavericks are still hoping to land unrestricted free agent Mo Williams.

While the Mavericks would like to sign Williams, there isn't much money or playing time to go around in Dallas. Mavericks president Donnie Nelson admitted that Williams would likely have to take a pay cut as compared to what other teams are offering him and would be fighting for playing time behind Monta Ellis, Raymond Felton, and Devin Harris. "We’ve been trying to figure out a way to get Mo in a Maverick uniform for years now. He’s a Dallas guy, from Memphis but live in Dallas with his family, so we’re hopeful that we can work something out," Nelson said. It’s just how much of a pay cut are guys willing to look at and we’re understanding and respectful of the market place and there’s other places that may have more playing time and more financial flexibility that we do."

The Dallas Mavericks are hoping ton sign Mo Williams at the veteran's minimum.

The Mavericks would seem to have a better chance of signing LeBron James than Williams at the minimum at first glance, but the team is hoping Williams' desire to be closer to his family will play into his decision-making process. Williams wouldn't bring much fantasy value to the table in Dallas, but he would provide a solid bench option for the Mavs after averaging 9.7 points and 4.3 assists with the Blazers in 2013-14.

While Mo Williams has met with the Mavericks, there remains mutual interest between him and the Trail Blazers, according to his agent.

"The doors aren’t closed with Portland," Williams’ agent Mark Bartelstein told CSNNW.com. "We’re still in constant communication with [general manager] Neil [Olshey] everyday. We’re just weighing all of our options at this point. We’ll continue to talk with [owner] Paul Allen and Neil to see if something can be worked out. Mo loves it in Portland and they want him back. It’s still an option." Williams reportedly is more interested in a long-term deal, than a big-money deal.

Mo Williams met with the Mavericks on Thursday.

The Mavericks won't be too eager to make an offer to Williams with their eyes on bigger free agents. Williams is expected to re-sign with the Blazers and there seems to be mutual interest between the two.
Jul 3 - 3:10 PM

Unrestricted free agent Mo Williams has reportedly not scheduled any meetings with any other teams, and his only goal is to "get something done with the Blazers."

Williams knows that this is likely the last time in his career he's going to be able to sign a multi-year deal, which was the logic behind him opting out of his contract with the Blazers. "I’m going into my 12th year, so I’d love to get a contract," Williams said. "This is, in my opinion, my last [mult-year contract]. After that, I’ll be a guy that’s hanging on by the last string, getting my one-year deal in... So this is my last time to get a three-year deal. I’ve got three good years left in me." Williams’ numbers last season were serviceable at 9.7 points and 4.3 assists, but asking for three more years may be a bit much. He's only a fantasy option in deep leagues.

Mo Williams is going to opt out of his contract with the Blazers, according to his agent, Mark Bartelstein.

Williams might still have a little gas left in the tank, but injuries are a concern and at this point, he might not be more than a good guy to have in the locker room for a team interested in winning a title. He had a groin injury in the playoffs, and averaged 9.7 points and 4.3 assists off the Blazers bench last season.
Jun 24 - 1:25 AM

Mo Williams (groin) will miss Game 5 vs. the Spurs on Wednesday night.

He's aggravated his groin strain multiple times in the playoffs and will miss his third consecutive game. The Blazers fared well without Williams in their Game 4 win on Monday and will look to extend their season in San Antonio tonight. Will Barton logged 30 minutes and was excellent off the bench, so he should be a key piece in the second unit again.
