I want to say thanks to all the fans, coaches [and] staff in rip city. I been a fun [and] successful [year and] I will always be grateful for the opportunity to play for such a classy organization. Thx
With that being said I couldnt be more happy to put on a Twolves jersey. Looking forward to playing with some good young talent and help the maturation process take place.
Williams, who spent the 2013-14 season with the Portland Trail Blazers, was also linked to the Dallas Mavericks in recent rumors. Dallas wound up agreeing to sign veteran point guard Jameer Nelson, while also re-signing Devin Harris and trading for Raymond Felton.
Williams, 31, averaged 9.7 points and 4.3 assists while shooting 41.7 percent from the field last season.
Williams told reporters during his exit interview that he wanted to sign a three-year contract. Rather than re-signing Williams, Portland elected to sign unrestricted free agent Steve Blake to a two-year deal worth $4.2 million. Blake spent last season with the Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors.
