Mo Williams announces he'll return to Cavaliers for final season

Fear not, Mo Williams fans. The guard is returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers for one more season. He announced the news on Twitter:

This will be Williams' 14th season. After that, he will retire, he confirmed to ESPN's Chris Haynes. Earlier this offseason, he reportedly contemplated calling it quits.

Williams, 33, appeared in 41 games for the Cavs last season, averaging 8.2 points and 2.4 assists in 18.2 minutes. He could be in line for a bigger role this year, though, as Cleveland lost backup guard Matthew Dellavedova in the offseason.

At this point in his career, Williams is best when used primarily as a spot-up 3-point shooter, and that's a pretty easy role to play when you're on the court with LeBron James. He likely will battle rookie Kay Felder and perhaps training-camp invitee Markel Brown for minutes.
