Lou Williams had been previously reported as someone the Kings would be interested in, and Josh Smith has been connected to Sacramento in multiple rumors over the years. The Sacramento Kings will begin discussions with free agents Josh Smith and Lou Williams today, according to league sources. — Jake Fischer (@JakeLFischer)...

Lou Williams and Carlos Boozer reportedly interested in joining Heat

Carlos Boozer and Lou Williams could gain some interest from Miami this off-season. Read the details below! We've talked plenty on potential free agents Dwyane Wade, Goran Dragic, and Luol Deng while also writing about draft prospects Stanley Johnson, Kelly Oubre and other possible Miami Heat picks during the 2015 NBA Draft, but we've forgot to mention another important part of the off-season: free agents that are interested in coming to Miami. According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Miami should expect sharpshooter Lou Williams to reach out to the Heat, along with power forward...

Via Shams Charania of RealGM - Lou Williams is expected to receive strong interest from teams that include the Sacramento Kings, Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets, providing a clear competition for the Toronto Raptors to retain the NBA’s reigning Sixth Man of the Year, league sources told RealGM.

Lou Williams to the Nets? Highly Unlikely

Shams Charania, in a report for RealGM, listed the Nets as a possible suitor for Lou Williams, who will be an unrestricted free agent next month. Lou Williams is expected to receive strong interest from teams that include the Sacramento Kings, Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets, providing a clear competition for the Toronto Raptors to retain the NBA’s reigning Sixth Man of the Year, league sources told RealGM. Realistic? Hardly. After averaging 15.5 points a game in 25 minutes this season, Williams is likely to command a salary of $8 million or more over four. ...

Report: Kings, Lakers, Knicks, Nets Expected To Pursue Lou Williams

The Sixth Man of the Year might get up to four-year, $35 million on the open market. The alternate title to this post was "breaking: teams might be interested in Lou Williams." This shouldn't come as much of a surprise, but nonetheless, it's the start of free agency rumor season, so per Shams Charania of RealGM, Sacramento, the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks and New Jersey Nets are expected to pursue Lou in free agency. The more interesting tidbit in the article is the suggestion that Williams could receive a three-year, $27 million deal, or a four-year, $35 million deal in free...

Reigning Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams is an unrestricted free agent this summer and is could explore his options outside of Toronto. The Los Angeles Lakers are one of several teams that have "strong interest" in the scoring guard, according to Shams Charania of Real GM.

Poll: What should the Raptors do with Lou Williams?

He was the 6 Man, the actual Sixth Man of the Year, and he could shoot the Raptors into and out of games. Now, what do the Raptors want to do with Lou Williams? Flip a coin. Flip it again. And then flip it once more. (Sure, go for a fourth time and get that even total.) That's how to view Lou Williams' 2014-15 season with the Toronto Raptors. Before every game you could flip a coin and it would be Heads "Lou will shoot the lights out" or Tails "Lou will shoot the team in the foot". As anyone who's mathematically inclined will tell you, if you flip a coin enough times it eventually tilts...

Raptors Player Review: 6 Man Lou Williams

On the one hand Lou Williams could be the best scorer the Raptors had on any given night. But, on the other he could shoot the team right out of a close game. Before diving into the stats and conversation about Lou Williams on the 2014-15 Toronto Raptors, let's remember that Masai Ujiri made his best move of the offseason acquiring Williams and Bebe Nogueira for John Salmons. JOHN FREAKING SALMONS. Ujiri bought low on Williams, as he still didn't look like himself of old during the previous season in Atlanta, due to a mix of the offensive system of Coach Budenholzer as well as still trying...
