Williams, a former All-Star who will be entering his 11th season in the NBA, has agreed to a two-year contract with the Blazers. The deal, first reported by Yahoo! Sports and confirmed by Bartelstein, will be worth $5.6 million that includes a player option in the second season. Though Williams -- who last played in Utah and averaged 12.9 points and 6.2 assists -- needed time this summer to test the market, Bartelstein said that the Blazers have been an option since July 1.

"Neil did a great job of staying in touch." Columbian
