The LA Clippers have signed swingman C.J. Williams to a multi-year contract, the team has announced. Williams split time this season with the Agua Caliente Clippers of the G League and the parent club.
Playing on a two-way contract, Williams was limited to how much service time he had in the NBA. The deal will give Williams the opportunity to stick with the Clippers long-term, as the LA Times is reporting a three-year pact.
The deal, however, is not guaranteed, so the Clippers can waive him prior to the expiration of the three season. As part of the signing, Williams will receive compensation for the 2018-'19 and '19-'20 seasons.
Williams received valuable NBA minutes during the 2017-18 season. The 28-year-old, who has played basketball all over the world, started 17 games for the Clippers and appeared in 36 total contests.
Williams’ shining moment came in a Jan. 8 win over the Atlanta Hawks, when he sank a game-winning three-pointer with nine seconds remaining in the game. A solid defensive player, Williams shot 44.6 percent from the field and averaged 5.3 PPG.
