Cavs' Williams to return for another run

Sam Amico

Mo Williams will return to the Cavaliers for one more year, and that comes straight from the man himself.

Williams, 33, apparently had been contemplating retirement. But he brought an end to the speculation Wednesday night, when he broke his own news and posted the following to his Twitter account:

"Coming back. #onemoreyear."

Williams is a 6-foot-1 point guard who played 41 games last season -- his first year of his second stint with the NBA champion Cavs.

He averaged 8.2 points and 2.4 assists in 41 games, a bothersome knee limiting his minutes and effectiveness in the season's second half.

With training camp less than a week away, the Cavs are likely feeling a sense of relief to know Williams will return. Besides Williams, rookie Kay Felder is the only point guard in reserve behind Kyrie Irving.

Williams is entering his 14th year. He has played for six teams and previously ran with the Cavs from 2008-11.

He replaced Matthew Dellavedova as Irving's primary backup late in the playoffs. Dellavedova was shipped to Milwaukee in a sign-and-trade in July.

Williams exercised a player option worth about $2.2 million after the season.
