Report: Clippers, Lou Williams talking contract extension

Lou Williams

Lou Williams’ name has come up in trade rumors, but that apparently has not stopped him and the Los Angeles Clippers from talking about a contract extension.

While appearing during ESPN’s broadcast of the Knicks-Celtics game Wednesday, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Clippers are negotiating with Williams on a contract extension.

This is actually not the first we’ve heard that, as The Vertical’s Shams Charania reported the same on Jan. 11.

Williams is on a one-year, $7 million deal with the Clippers and set to become a free agent after the season. He’s been a statistical stud this season, averaging 23.5 points while making 39 percent of this threes — both career-best marks.

If Williams is able to negotiate a contract extension with the Clippers, that wouldn’t necessarily mean he couldn’t be traded. Teams would then know how long they’d have Williams under contract for rather than be worried about losing him after the season.

After the Clippers traded Blake Griffin to Detroit on Monday, Woj reported that the team could also look to trade Williams and DeAndre Jordan.
