Lou Williams said his intention is to finish his career with his current team, the Los Angeles Clippers.

Williams joined the Clippers in 2017 and has one year and $8 million remaining on his current contract. The versatile guard is set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2021.

“Never give up. That’s my Clippers story, never give up. I was at a place in my career where I thought that I was done, and [head coach] Doc [Rivers] and the rest of the guys rejuvenated me again and gave me that confidence that I needed to move forward in my career. And I’ve had the best years of my career with the Clippers.

This is it. Listen, all teams out there, I’m not playing for anybody else after this … That’s my leverage. This is my last stop. I identify with this group of guys, I identify with this organization. I don’t see me finding that somewhere else,” Williams said in a recent interview with ESPN’s Ros Gold-Onwude, via Sports Illustrated.
