One of the league’s longest-tenured players will be in a new uniform soon.
The Charlotte Hornets are working on a buyout deal with veteran forward Marvin Williams, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports.
Bucks reportedly next stop for Williams
The 33-year-old 15-year NBA veteran has spent the last six seasons with the Charlotte Hornets. With the Hornets focusing on young players like Miles Bridges and P.J. Washington in the frontcourt, Williams doesn’t provide much value to a lottery-bound team.
Williams, a capable defender who shoots 37.6 percent from 3-point distance as a 6-8 forward, reportedly plans to sign with the Milwaukee Bucks, according to Shams Charania.
Williams hasn’t seen much playoff success during his career playing mostly with the Hornets and Atlanta Hawks, in addition to a two-year stint with the Utah Jazz. It makes sense that he wants to make a run with a playoff team.
Williams has averaged 6.7 points, 2.7 rebounds and one assist while seeing his playing time reduced from 28.4 minutes per game last season to 19.7 per game this season.
With reports that Williams has been mulling retirement, the Bucks could be his last stop.
