The Lou Williams era in Toronto is over after just one season. The NBA’s reigning Sixth Man of the Year has reached an agreement on a three-year, $21 million deal with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Williams will be a key addition to a Lakers team that lacked depth last season. Via Yahoo Sports!:
Williams, 28, was the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year last season after averaging a career-high 15.5 points with 2.1 assists and 1.1 steals in 80 games for the Toronto Raptors. In 10 NBA seasons with the Philadelphia 76ers, Atlanta Hawks and Raptors, Williams has averaged 11.9 points while making 34.1 percent of his 3-point attempts.
Williams’ agent Wallace Prather completed the deal with Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak on Sunday.
