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.
May 14 - 2:37 PM

Mo Williams (groin) did not play in Monday's must-win Game 4 in Portland.

The Blazers will likely be without their sixth-man for the second straight game, though the veteran guard hasn't yet been ruled out. If there's any chance Williams could be productive he'll certainly suit up with his season hanging in the balance, but Stotts' statements at shootaround give no cause for optimism.

Mo Williams (groin) is not expected to play in Game 4 vs. the Spurs on Monday.

Blazers coach Terry Stotts said on Sunday that there was "no update" on Williams' status, which means he's likely to pick up a second straight DNP. The Blazers bench combined for six points without Mo available in Game 3, and they'll need to find some reserve production to avoid being swept away on their home court.

Mo Williams (groin) has officially been ruled out for Saturday's Game 3 in Portland.

Blazers coach Terry Stotts said that Earl Watson and Will Barton will assume bigger roles with Williams sidelined. Mo aggravated his injury a few times before finally missing a game, and he's iffy to return for Game 4 on Monday. The Blazers' thin bench just got even thinner.
May 10 - 2:21 PM

Mo Williams (groin) is not expected to play against the Spurs in Game 3 on Saturday.

He has aggravated his groin injury in each of the last three games, which is certainly enough evidence to sit him down. Williams has battled injuries for much of his career and the Blazers are already playing with house money a bit. If he sits, expect starters Damian Lillard and Wesley Matthews to get a couple more minutes while Earl Watson and Will Barton could get more run.
May 9 - 5:40 PM

Mo Williams said he originally hurt his groin during Game 6 against the Rockets.

That means Williams has been nursing the strain for more than a week now. He aggravated it during Game 1 against the Spurs and probably shouldn't have even tried to play in Game 2 as he lasted just nine ineffective minutes. Williams may try to gut it out in Saturday night's Game 3, but the Blazers can't count on their sixth man for a real spark.
May 9 - 9:26 AM

Mo Williams aggravated his groin injury on Thursday vs. the Spurs and will not return.

He aggravated his groin issue in Game 1 and there's a decent chance the Blazers might have to sit him down for Game 3. Williams finished with four points and one turnover in nine minutes of action. Will Barton and Earl Watson could pick up some extra minutes.
May 8 - 11:48 PM

Mo Williams (groin) will play in Game 2 Thursday night against the Spurs.

Williams aggravated an existing groin pull during Tuesday's Game 1 loss and sat out Wednesday's practice, but will be ready to go Thursday night. "It’s the playoffs, man," Williams said. "I got to grind it out. The [expletive] hurts, but I’m going to do what I can. It’s tough. You need your groin. Running off them damn screens. It’s tough, you know. But I wouldn’t miss this for nothing." Williams is Portland's highest bench scorer, so they'll need him on the court to counter the Spurs deep bench, which is arguably the league's best.

Mo Williams scored three points on 1-of-6 shooting in Sunday's comeback, as the Blazers won in OT despite their bench combining for seven points on 14.3 percent shooting.

Portland's bench averaged a league-low 24.7 points per game during the regular season, so the lack of production is nothing new, but to come back in the series they'll need to get some production from Williams, Thomas Robinson, Dorell Wright and Joel Freeland.
Apr 21 - 1:21 AM

Mo Williams will rest in Wednesday's finale.

He's been dealing with some knee issues and is no spring chicken, so it makes sense for the Blazers to give him a rest. LaMarcus Aldridge will join him in street clothes.
