He may end up staying with Portland, who knows.

But there are a few teams who could use him.


If he doesn't mind coming off the bench, I think the Thunder, the Spurs and the Pacers could all use a guy like him, and the Heat as well (he loves James).

If he wants to start, I think his best option is Detroit. He may be able to start in Miami, granted, but it would be a small role. In Detroit he'd be the primary ball handler.


The Knicks could also use him.

He's a decent ball handler with a good 3pt shot.

Thoughts?

No thanks from Detroit. I would bring him in as a hired gun, but certainly not as a primary ball handler.

He is a former all-star who posted 14 points and 6 assists per36 this year, has a .385 career 3pt percentage and was a key player off the bench for the Trailblazers.

Why not?

There may not be a lot of options at the point.

If we'd had him instead of Jennings, the Pistons would have likely made the playoffs this year.

He would certainly be an improvement over what we got.

What? Youīre saying that swapping him and Jennings would make us better by 9 wins? Iīm not saying that Mo is trash or nothing like that but i just want him on the Pistons roster with big role.

I agree, just go rejoin his Cavs buddy in Miami and ring chase.

Could def see that, he's also a good triangle fit with his shooting ability. So if he wants to play big minutes again and start I could see him going to NY.

Wow if he leaves the Blazers their bench goes from awful to deplorable.

Maybe Portland would be open to taking Jamal Crawford with Mo gone.

Did something change, because last I remember of them to interacting was James going up to shake Mo's hand and Mo gave him the cold shoulder.

I doubt McCollum is a big dropoff. Mo Williams has been pretty worthless for a few years. He can shoot but that's it, and he's 6 foot nothing.

Why not?

He's moderately above average on 3's but significantly below average on 2's, and he doesn't shoot a large proportion of 3's to compensate (just about average for a guard). He gets to the free throw line at approximately half the rate of an average guard. He's also turnover prone and foul prone, and does not generate much in the way of possessions. Granted I didn't see him play a lot this year, but given his previous years he's a guy who gets overrated because he does everything slightly below average, but takes a crap ton of shots. Pass.

All star? Lmaooooo he made it as a replacement for Jameer Nelson and then Chris Bosh. Stop that.

He can be a good fit in Miami. If he wants to join Lebron he doesn't have to run the point.

No way Miami signs him, Chalmers is better than him first of all, he is a bad defender, and he has a tendency to choke in the playoffs as I remember, he doesn't fit Miami at all.

I would love to have him as Curry's backup

Could def see him suiting up for NYK. Not a lot of teams come to mind as needing a PG as bad as them.

He'll change his tune real quick if LeBron sees him again.


We don't need a thread on Mo ****ing Williams. Stop making stupid posts.

he's a nice sparkplug, but the market for him could be very small

I'd like to see him in Brooklyn if we are unable to re-sign Livingston
