Mo Williams, AGAIN, Claimed and Waived By Denver: The Timeline


It has been an embarrassing retirement tour for one-time NBA All-Star and champion Mo Williams.

Williams has yet to announce that he will retire, but looking at what has happened over the previous weeks, it’ll probably be very soon.

Williams, 34, who was once considered a marquee point guard in the league during his prime, has been a member of four different teams in 2016-17 and has yet to play a single minute. Since the beginning of the season, he has been apart of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Atlanta Hawks, Philadelphia 76ers, and Denver Nuggets… Twice.

On Monday, Mo Williams was claimed off waivers by the Denver Nuggets for the second time in one week and is looked to be waived again.
