Hawks acquire Lou Williams in exchange for Rajon Rondo

The Atlanta Hawks have traded Rajon Rondo to the Clippers in exchange for Lou Williams. It seems Atlanta felt they needed a more reliable scoring option off the bench, as the second unit has not yielded good offensive results. This will be Williams’ second stint in Atlanta, the first being from 2012-2014, where he averaged 12.2 PPG. In the past four seasons, Williams has averaged 22, 20, 18, and now 12 PPG, as the former sixth man has been a lightning rod off the bench for the Clippers.

Rondo was met with high expectations in Atlanta this offseason; however, he hasn’t quite lived up to the $15 million contract he signed, so perhaps both parties will be pleased to move on. For the Hawks, the thought process is clear. They will be all-in on offense for the remainder of the year, as there aren’t many players in the league better at getting a bucket than Sweet Lou. The Atlanta native is hopefully excited to be coming home, and Hawks fans will welcome his scoring with open arms.
