Enter Lou Williams.
Williams, the 76ers leading scorer last season despite coming off the bench, has reached an agreement to join the Atlanta Hawks, reports Brian Windhorst of ESPN (and confirmed by the Atlanta Journal Constitution). Terms of the deal are not yet known.
Williams gave the Sixers 14.9 points per game but on 40 percent shooting last season — he scores but he’s not terribly efficient at it. He can knock down threes (36.2 percent last year) and he shot 41 percent on long twos more than 16 feet) last season, but he struggled to finish at the rim. Still, he scores. He had a PER of 20.3, he can create his own shot (the Hawks will need that next season) he’s not afraid of late games (he was the 76ers creating and taking late shots last season).
