“I don’t want to tell y’all that because y’all think I’ll retire after this year, man,” Williams said. “I’ve got some years left in me. But absolutely, they know that, a lot of coaches know it just because of my personality. In the summertime, I coach my AAU teams personally. I practice them personally. It’s a passion. It’s something when my legs say I can’t do it no more and guys like Zach and Andrew keep coming into the league, I’ll probably have to start coaching.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune

On Mo Williams potentially coming to the Mavericks: Nelson: “Yeah we’ve been trying to figure out a way to get Mo in a Maverick uniform for years now. He’s a Dallas guy, from Memphis but live in Dallas with his family, so we’re hopeful that we can work something out but again our hands are tied right now because of the Parsons thing of what we can do financially. All these guys, whether it’s Mo, whether it’s ‘Trix, in all reality they’re going to have to take a payout to come here. It’s just how much of a pay cut are guys willing to look at and we’re understanding and respectful of the market place and there’s other places that may have more playing time and more financial flexibility that we do, but we would love for both of those guys to continue to consider us.” Dallas Morning News

Lillard says the pickup of Steve Blake was “big” and added that he’s looking forward to playing alongside him. But he admitted that it was a bit difficult to wrap his mind around the fact that his “brother” wouldn’t be around anymore. “I was disappointed because that’s my brother,” Lillard told CSNNW.com. “He’s always been there for me. When I did something wrong, he was the first one showing showing me how I should have done it. “When I did something good, he was the first person telling me how proud he was of me. When I’m alone on the road, he’s the one that’ll come hang with me. That’s my guy. I thought he would be coming back, but I understand this is a business.” CSNNW.com

This addition likely ends the pursuit of free agent Mo Williams, who was the team’s leading scorer off the bench. Williams’ agent told CSNNW.com with the acquisition of Blake, the chances of Mo returning are slimmer, but not completely shut. “There is a strong market for Mo and Portland knows that,” Mark Bartelstein said. They had to protect themselves by picking up Blake. We still have interest but we’re still looking over our options at this time.” CSNNW.com
