25-year old guard Lou Williams has an Early Termination Option in his contract or he could play for the Sixers for $5.35 million bucks in 2012-13. The Sixers hope that Williams will stay, as he was the leading scorer for them despite coming off the bench. He could get a higher offer from another team and a chance to start, which would have to appeal to him. Williams played in 64 games (0 starts) for the 76ers last year and he averaged 26.3 minutes, 14.9 points, 2.4 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game. He has now played in 455 games (38 starts) in his seven years with the Sixers and he is averaging 21.9 minutes, 11.3 points, 2.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game. Williams is #5 now in Sixers’ history with 373 three pointers made.
UPDATE: (6/17/2012) – Lou Williams has opted out of his contract with the Sixers. He wouldn’t mind re-signing with them, but not at a discount.
