Mo Williams has officially signed with the Portland Trail Blazers. The former Utah Jazz guard has agreed to terms on a two-year deal with a reported $5.4 million.

“As a player, Mo is an explosive scorer and willing facilitator,” General Manager Neil Olshey said in a release. “As a person, his character and professionalism will set an outstanding example for our young players on the court, in the locker room and in the Portland community.”

Williams joins an incredibly deep and talented point guard position for the Blazers. Along with superstar Damian Lillard, the Blazers have rookie C.J. McCollum and Earl Watson.

Williams has had an up-and-down career. After earning a spot in the 2009 All-Star game with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Williams has not played a complete season averaging just 37.5 games per season and 28.5 starts per season. Williams made 46 appearances for the Milwaukee Bucks last season, starting each one and averaging 12.9 PPG and 6.2 APG.

“I’m very excited to be back with Mo again,” Head Coach Terry Stotts said. “He adds versatility, scoring and veteran leadership to the team.”
