Mo Williams wants a contract extension with Clippers

Hello, Clippers, welcome to the price of success. I know this is all new to you, but you’re going to be getting a lot of this kind of stuff now.

Mo Williams wants a contract extension. Pretty much that’s what you can read into this comment from the Los Angeles Times.

“I just want to know where I stand with the Clippers.”

Where he stands is that he’s making $8.5 million this year with a player option for the same amount next year. Beyond that the Clippers are going to have to give max extensions to Chris Paul and Blake Griffin for the 2013-14 season (not to mention the nearly $11 million DeAndre Jordan will make that year), so they may be looking to keep the price of backup guards down a little bit.

It’s not that they don’t like Mo Williams or think he’s a quality player, but with the payroll hits for the big stars coming, the Clippers are going to be looking for value pricing in role players. Which may rule out extensions of $8.5 million deals.

    Want to be a Cllipper? Take a pay cut

    Lol, Clippers aren’t going to have to worry about giving CP a max extension. Once they get knocked out of the playoffs, he’ll start his “I don’t want to sign an extension, I just want to win” deal, so he can go play in NY/MIA

    Leave the Clippers so he can go to NY to win? Hmmmmm.

    Hahah leave the clippers to go to new York? Oh yeah cause the Knicks are doing so well right now.

    This is ridiculous … in every interview so far Mo Williams has been team 1st, anything and everything to help the team … not disgruntled whatsoever. And now, with Billups done, his time has come to play more minute — and he chooses NOW to bitch about his contract and playing time? that’s ridiculous.
