Lou Williams    G  Clippers

 

 

Lou Williams scored 35 points with three rebounds, four assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in a 128-117 win over the Suns on Friday. He's a lock for Sixth Man of the Year at this point and he should probably be unanimous. The Clippers are just 1.0 games behind the Pelicans for the No. 8 spot, but both teams do have a really tough schedule coming up. Either way, it's looking like Williams won't get much rest as he looks to put a bow on one of the best sixth-man seasons in recent memory.

Lou Williams posted a 21-point, 12-assist double-double during Thursday's loss to the Warriors, adding two 3-pointers, one rebound, one steal and three turnovers in 34 minutes. Williams struggled to get his shot to drop for much of the game, but he got hot during crunch time, hitting a plethora of ridiculous shots for the Clippers to keep the game close. This was also Sweet Lou's fourth 10+ assist game of the season, which is a feat he had accomplished just once through his first 12 years in the league.

Lou Williams hit 8-of-16 shots for 20 points, two rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in 30 minutes of Monday's win over the Nets. He didn't hit a 3-pointer after hitting four in each of his previous two games, but the minutes are there, he's happy in L.A. and he should continue to be a big part of what they do going forward. Make sure he's not available in your league.

Fresh off a new contract extension, Lou Williams dropped 26 points on 7-of-12 shots in Friday's 108-95 win over the Pistons. Williams also hit 8-of-9 free throws, adding six assists, four rebounds, two steals, four triples and four turnovers in 31 minutes. Williams just recently signed a three-year extension worth $24 million that includes a team option for a third season, an absolute bargain for a player that could've easily been selected to the All-Star game. "It was nice for the organization to commit to me the same way I've committed to these guys this year," Williams said. He has top-20 value in 9-category leagues for the past month and could hold early-round value the rest of the way unless the Clippers start to slide in the standings. His fantasy owners should be thrilled he wasn't traded.

Lou Williams has reportedly agreed to a three-year extension with the Clippers. This move would support the narrative that the Clippers were "retooling" and not "rebuilding" with the Blake Griffin trade, so at this point, it seems somewhat less likely that DeAndre Jordan will be dealt at the deadline. This also will ramp up Boston and Denver's efforts to swing a deal for Tyreke Evans, as both Evans and Williams were on their radar. With Sweet Lou locked up in Los Angeles, he should easily finish the season as a top-30 guy.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst of ESPN, extension talks between Lou Williams and the Clippers "have gathered significant momentum." His fantasy owners should be thrilled if Williams agrees to an extension, as a move to a contender could've really hurt his value. The report adds that rival teams have accepted the fact that Williams is no longer on the market, and it looks like Williams is close to signing a multi-year extension to stay in Los Angeles. He's enjoying the best season of his career, averaging 23.3 points, 5.3 assists, 2.5 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 2.8 triples, returning top-30 value in standard leagues.

Williams scored 21 points (5-16 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 11-11 FT) while adding six assists and a rebound in 33 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 113-103 win over the Bulls. It was the first time since mid-November -- a stretch of 35 games -- that Williams failed to sink at least one three-pointer, but his ability to get to the free-throw line kept his streak of games with 20 or more points alive at seven. The Blake Griffin trade gives the Clippers a more balanced offense that lacks a go-to superstar in the clutch, so don't be surprised if Williams takes on that role late in games and continues his surprising career-best campaign through the second half.

Lou Williams scored 21 points with one rebound, six assists and two turnovers in 33 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday. He will always get his shots on the Clippers, but the question is where he will get shots after Feb. 8. Williams appears to be one of the top trade targets and he will almost certainly be taking a massive hit to his fantasy value.

Williams contributed 20 points (5-26 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 8-9 FT), five assists, a rebound, a steal and a blocked shot in 39 minutes during Tuesday's 104-96 loss to the Trail Blazers. Williams has now scored 20 or more points off the bench in 13 straight games, which ties the record for the second-longest streak of that kind since bench scores were recorded. It feels like business as usual for Williams, who's made a career of being an excellent sixth-man at every stop he's made in his 12-year sojourn in the NBA. There's no telling what will happen to Williams in a week, as he's been mentioned as one of the many possible trade pieces to exit LA, although that probability has shrunk a bit after the unexpected Blake Griffin trade.

Lou Williams hit just 5-of-26 shots and 8-of-9 free throws for 20 points, five assists, one rebound, one steal, one block and two triples in 39 minutes vs. the Blazers on Tuesday. Williams struggled with his shot tonight, but the All-Star snub has been a top-12 player in 9-category leagues for the past month. The Clippers just moved Blake Griffin on Monday and ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Williams and DeAndre Jordan could follow him out the door in exchange for young talent and draft picks, and it's hard to imagine a trade not hurting his value. His fantasy owners should be hoping for a quiet trade deadline.
