Lou Williams became one of the surprising names that changed team during the trade deadline on Thursday. The former Clipper revealed he considered retiring after the Clippers shipped him to the Hawks for Rojon Rondo.
The 2-time Sixth Man of the Year took to Instagram and he admitted that he thought of stop playing basketball. However, he thought about it more and ended up making the decision to continue having plenty left in the tank.
Williams is on the midst of a mediocre season as he’s averaging 21.9 minutes (lowest since his sophomore season) scoring 12.1 points per contest.
He’s shooting 37 percent from deep and nearly 42 percent from the field adding 3.4 assists and 2.1 rebounds per game. The Hawks are expecting Williams to cover a huge need.
They’re hopeful that the veteran guard will provide much-needed spark coming off the bench for the Hawks, who are among the worst teams in second unit scoring effieciency.
