Mo Williams

PG,

  • 4 seasons with Cavaliers (2008-11, 2015-16)
  • Averaged 14.8 points and 4.6 assists per game
  • 1x All-Star, 1x NBA champion with Cavs

Mo Williams was the first All-Star that LeBron James played with on a team that reached the playoffs. (Both James and Zydrunas Ilgauskas were named to the Eastern Conference All-Star team in 2004-05, but the Cavaliers went just 42-40 and missed the playoffs.)

Williams was 26 years old when acquired via trade from the Milwaukee Bucks prior to the 2008-09 season and proceeded to have the best season of his career. He averaged 17.8 points and 4.1 assists per game in 81 starts, shooting 43.6 percent from beyond the arc.

The Cavaliers made it to the Eastern Conference Finals before losing to Dwight Howard‘s Orlando Magic in six games. The next year, Williams came back down to earth somewhat and had a less efficient season, but still managed to put up 15.8 points and 5.3 assists per contest.

Williams was traded to the Clippers midway through the 2010-11 season and after bouncing back to Utah, where he started his NBA career, and then to Portland, Minnesota, and Charlotte, finished his career with a 41-game swan song in 2015-16 as the Cavs won the championship.
