Mo Williams apparently decided to play one more season after all. Williams, 33, who strongly considered retiring after 13 pro seasons, announced on Twitter Wednesday night that he was “coming back #onemoreyear.” He’s under contract with the Cavs for this season at $2.2 million. Williams had told people close to him over the summer that he would retire, but the Cavs said they never heard that from him and were unsure if he would return.
Storyline: Maurice Williams Retirement?

Sources close to the 33-year-old reserve guard say Williams has had multiple changes of heart this summer over whether or not to retire after 13 pro seasons. The latest indication he had made, according to one source, was that he was leaning again toward playing. As of late August and early September, the feeling of multiple friends and associates of Williams believed he would retire. His missing of James’ workouts, though not necessarily a signal he has again reversed course, clouds the picture.

Revisiting the Williams scenario, the other potential backup to Kyrie Irving at point guard on the roster is rookie Kay Felder. A source confirmed Cleveland’s interest in free agent point guard Norris Cole, among others, but said the Cavs likely wouldn’t bring in a veteran free agent until Williams’ status — and capability — was determined. Williams played on a bad left knee last season.
