Mo Williams Not Being Shopped By Clippers
Despite their backload of talented point guards, the Los Angeles Clippers are not shopping Mo Williams, according to ESPN Los Angeles.
"Every day Mo comes in and does what he's doing, doesn't give us any impetus to want to trade him," Clippers general manager Neil Olshey told ESPNLosAngeles.com "I want him to be here and I want him to be happy. He's had so much of an impact on our win total at this point, that hopefully he's embracing (his new role)."
The Clippers acquired All-Star point guard Chris Paul as well as former All-Star point guard Chauncey Billups this offseason, two major moves aimed at taking the Clippers from a young developing squad into a legitimate NBA contender. Williams, however, is now competing for time with Paul, Billups, and Randy Foye.
Despite seeing his playing time drop, Williams is still averaging 14.8 points and 3.8 assists per game this season, leading some to believe that his production value may make him a good trade chip. The Clippers are currently 14-7, which ranks them first in the Pacific Division.
