    Williams' six-year deal reportedly worth $52 million

    Williams


    Mo Williams will be returning to the Milwaukee Bucks after agreeing in principle to a six-year, $52 million contract, ESPN.com's Chris Sheridan has learned.
    The breakthrough in negotiations came when the Bucks increased their original offer as Williams was being heavily courted by the Miami Heat. Williams will have a player opt-out clause after the fourth and fifth year of the deal, which has an average annual salary of $8.67 million.

    Williams was seeking a deal that would earn him similar money to what other starting point guards were making, but with money tight on this summer's free agent market, his leverage was limited. Miami and other teams could only offer Williams, who averaged career-bests of 17.3 points and 6.1 assists with the Bucks this past season, the mid-level exception of $5.3 million.
    Signing Williams had been a priority for the Heat largely because the Heat have concerns about the health of incumbent starter Jason Williams -- who has battled several injuries during his two seasons in Miami and is rehabbing this summer at his home in Central Florida.
    Agent Mark Bartlestein said the contract should be finalized early next week.

    Yeah - now I'm disappointed. This is the move I've been waiting on all summer and we don't get Mo. Mo will be an all star next year.

    This is the guy I truly think was Bird's shooter. Bird didn't want to part ways with Danny or Shawne I'm sure was the holdup. Now one of them are going to have to play SG minutes if we keep JO. Plus now we are stuck with Tins another year I'm afraid.

    Kegboy - now you have something to talk about at the forum party. Unfortunately it is about who we DIDN'T get rather than who we got.

    another free agent that used another team to drive up his price...

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
    Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005
    NBA Champions 1989, 1990, 2004

    Maybe Miami will be ready to do a Tinsley for Williams/some kind of draft pick so the P's can dump some salary.

    And this is wrong, how......? It's smart business.

    From what I've seen, Mo is worth his contract. He's a star in the making.

    I really wanted to see Williams in a Pacers uniform. But what he is getting is right, and we couldn't afford it.

    What I want to know is how Rashard Lewis' agent managed to drive up his price despite the fact that there were no other teams seriously bidding.
