Blazers Sign Guard Mo Williams

Mo Williams signs with Portland.



Portland continues to revamp their bench, which was one of the worst last season. Mo Williams has reached an agreement on a two-year contract with the Portland Trail Blazers, agent Mark Bartelstein told USA TODAY Sports’ Jeff Zillgitt on Wednesday.

The veteran point guard will receive $5.6 million over two years, with the second season being a player option.

Williams missed half the season last year due to a torn ligament in his right thumb. The 30-year old can still produce when healthy. He averaged 12.9 points and 6.2 assists a game in Utah.

Portland will likely have Williams backup the reigning Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard.
