Trail Blazers sixth man Mo Williams said he will opt out of the final year of his contract to become a free agent. Williams has a $2.77 million option for next season with the Blazers but is looking for a long-term deal. From the Oregonian:
Trail Blazers sixth man Mo Williams said he will opt out of the final year of his two-year contract with the Blazers and become a free agent this summer.
Williams said his goal this summer is to land a “good contract” that lasts at least three years.
“I’m going into my 12th year, so I’d love to get a contract,” Williams said. “This is, in my opinion, my last one. After that, I’ll be a guy that’s hanging on by the last string, getting my one-year deal in, trying to get as many of those as I can. So this is my last time to get a three-year deal. I’ve got three good years left in me.”
