Rumor: Heat, Clippers, Cavaliers interested in Mo Williams
Mo Williams can shoot a team to an unexpected victory. Or, his misses on an off night combined with his unimpressive defense can take a team right out of a win. He’s scoring 12.5 a game for Minnesota but is shooting just 39.9 percent this season overall. To be fair he is doing a better job as a distributor. He’d make a decent reserve on a quality team.
And he’s available.
While logic might dictate that much of the Timberwolves roster would be available in a deal, that is not the case reports Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press.
And on Wolves trade front: Don't get any sense the Wolves have any desire to part with Kevin Martin, Pek, maybe even Young. Mo is available.— Jon Krawczynski (@JonKrawczynski) January 30, 2015
So who is interested in Williams? A few teams, according to Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities.
The Cavaliers and Clippers are both potential contenders looking for depth at the point guard spot behind their All-Star players. Williams would be an upgrade, at least on offense, over the guys they are using. Miami is not a contender but they have been looking for help at the point guard spot since LeBron James came to that city, let alone now.
But is anyone going to give up anything of value, really?
Not today, but as the trade deadline gets closer it’s something to monitor.
