Williams is an unrestricted free agent, so he can sign with whoever he likes, but he seems to understand that if he wants to go to a winning franchise, he might have to be flexible.

This is good news for Lakers Fan, as Williams seems to be open to a sign and trade situation.

Williams, a likely free agent this summer and one of the NBA’s top point guards, was cognizant of the Lakers’ limited purchasing power. They have very little to spend on free agents because they are so far over the luxury-tax threshold. Their biggest tool is the $3-million “mini” mid-level exception.

“I know they don’t have any money to just go out and sign me. It’ll have to be some kind of [trade],” Williams said Wednesday at the E3 Expo, where he promoted the video game “NBA Baller Beats.”

A lot of things would have to do be done financially to make it happen, it is a long shot, but not impossible, so keep an eye out on it.

    Dude; you can either sign with a winner or sign with a team that can pay what you want and hope they become a winner. That’s the way it works.
