Ex-NBA players and current ESPN analysts Jay Williams and Kendrick Perkins discuss the possibility of 3x Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams sitting out the NBA’s restart of the 2019-20 season, and what that would do to the championship prospects of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and the rest of the Los Angeles Clippers.

They also (4:31) talk about the Utah Jazz big man Rudy Gobert saying he still doesn’t have his sense of smell entirely back months after testing positive for COVID-19.

In 60 games so far this season, Lou Williams is averaging 18.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, 0.7 steals, 0.2 blocks and 5.7 assists per game, while shooting at 41.6 percent from the floor and 36.3 percent from deep.
