Report: Williams, Clippers agree to 3-year, $24M extension
Lou Williams appears to be staying put with the Los Angeles Clippers.
The shooting guard and the team have agreed to terms on a three-year, $24-million contract extension, league sources told The Vertical's Shams Charania. It includes a reported $1.5-million partial guarantee in year three, although that season is a team option, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
The deal ends any chance of the gunner being dealt prior to Thursday's NBA trade deadline. The 31-year-old is in the midst of a career season, averaging 23.3 points on 38 percent 3-point shooting.
The reported deal also perhaps sheds some light on the Clippers' intentions. By locking up Williams, it seems unlikely a full rebuild is in the cards. However, center DeAndre Jordan can opt out of his contract to become a free agent this summer.
