Lou Williams Rumors
Basketball-Reference: Lou Williams averaged 22.6 PPG this season, 9th most by a player making fewer than 20 starts in a season since 1983-84, the first year we have starter data.

Tomer Azarly: Lou Williams (@TeamLou23) says there’s no debate as to who should win Sixth Man of the Year, and it’s hard to argue with him on that. Lou is averaging 22.6 points and 5.3 assists per game. #Clippers
“I put up with about 25 years worth of dismal Clipper seasons and have been thrilled to watch their success in recent years as one of the NBA’s top five teams. Maybe the loss of Chris Paul was unavoidable but the trade of Blake Griffin and attempted trades of DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams made no sense at all. “I don’t want to endure another long stretch of playoff misses in the hope that some future draft pick turns out to be a star. The Lakers have had top draft picks for three years and still can’t make the playoffs.”
Kyle Ratke: Doc Rivers before the game on Lou Williams and Jamal Crawford playing until their 50: “I think they’ve both figured it out. just play one end of the floor.” Said he was half-joking. lol. That’s funny.
Jimmy Butler chose to sit out of the thrilling All-Star Game last weekend to rest, which raised some eyebrows. One immediate response came from the Clippers’ Lou Williams, who felt he was snubbed from the game. He tweeted at Butler and wrote “u serious bruh?” Because this league is so much fun, we got to hear what Butler’s response to that tweet was before the Timberwolves-Rockets game on Friday night.
