Lou Williams reportedly will re-sign with the Atlanta Hawks on a one-year, $5 million contract.

Were the Warriors interested in adding the three-time NBA Sixth Man of the Year?

"Williams had significant interest from several contenders, including the Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors, and Milwaukee Bucks," HoopsHype's Michael Scotto reported Thursday afternoon, citing league sources.

If the Warriors officially offered Williams a contract, it's safe to assume it was for the veteran's minimum (a little over $2.6 million) and not the $5.9 million taxpayer mid-level exception.

The 34-year-old was traded by the LA Clippers to the Hawks in late March.

Williams averaged 13.0 minutes over Atlanta's first 15 playoff games, but was thrust into a much bigger role in the Eastern Conference finals when Trae Young got hurt.

He registered 21 points and eight assists in the Hawks' Game 4 win, and 17 points and five assists in their Game 5 loss.

The Warriors currently have 12 players under guaranteed contracts for next season, and presumably will add one or two more free agents in the coming days.
