Rockets' Lou Williams: Traded to Clips
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was traded to the Clippers on Wednesday as part of a deal that brings Chris Paul to Houston, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.

The Rockets added Williams at the trade deadline, and the former-Laker went on to be a finalist for the Sixth Man of the Year Award after finishing the year with averages of 17.5 points, 3.0 assists and 2.5 rebounds in 24.6 minutes per game. With one year remaining on his contract, Williams may not be included in the Clippers' long-term plans, but he'll provide immediate scoring and playmaking to a roster that could struggle to replace Chris Paul's contributions. Williams has spent the bulk of his career as a bench player, but he may have a chance to start next season with J.J. Redick set to be an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Rockets' Lou Williams: Bounces back with double-digit points in Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams tallied 13 points (6-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists over 32 minutes during Sunday's 125-104 win over the Spurs in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals.

The veteran sharpshooter hadn't looked like himself over the last two games, going scoreless over 11 minutes in Game 3 and posting just four points in 18 minutes in Game 2. Sunday's effort was therefore a welcome sight, as Williams equaled his Game 1 scoring total while taking a series-high amount of shot attempts. The fact that the 30-year-old guard his highest allotment of minutes in the series certainly helped his cause, and he'll look to remain similarly involved when the Rockets travel to San Antonio for a pivotal Game 5.

Rockets' Lou Williams: Leads bench with 16 points in series-clinching win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams scored 22 points (7-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT) and added five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 33 minutes during Tuesday's Game 5 105-99 win over the Thunder.

Williams was the Rockets' second leading scorer on a night when James Harden struggled to connect from anywhere other than the free-throw line. Williams has played at least 30 minutes in three games straight, and has scored double-digit points in every game during the playoffs. As long as his minutes stay elevated, he is a strong option in daily formats.

Rockets' Lou Williams: Lights out from three Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams scored 21 points (8-14 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding two assists, one rebound and one steal across 21 minutes in Wednesday's 115-111 victory over the Thunder in Game 2.

Williams' efficiency resulted in the third-highest point total on the team in just over 20 minutes of action Wednesday night. He has made just six of his last 45 threes over his last nine appearances, so his 75 percent accuracy in Game 2 definitely was a good sign for Rockets fans. If Williams can find his shot, he should see a plethora of opportunities with most of the attention being put towards stopping James Harden.

Rockets' Lou Williams: Will play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams will play in Wednesday's regular season finale against the Timberwolves, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Williams was one of several regulars held out of Monday's game against the Clippers, but the Rockets will have nearly their entire roster for the regular season finale, which they'll treat as a final tuneup for the postseason. Expect Williams to play his usual role of 25-30 minutes off the bench.
