The newest member of the LA Clippers, Lou Williams, made his Drew League debut where he lit it up for 50 points.
Although the regular season is still months away, some current NBA players still find themselves on the court. For some, that’s in the summer league. Others, it means at home getting up some shots. For the LA Clippers’ Lou Williams, it means in the Drew League.
Williams, who was acquired from the Houston Rockets in the CP3 trade, made his Drew League debut this past weekend. It’s safe to say he didn’t disappoint.
Lou set a Drew League record, putting up 50 points.
Williams, who is one of the more prolific bench players in the NBA, will be a great addition to the Clippers’ bench. With Jamal Crawford gone, it appears as if he’ll be the perfect replacement.
Lou, who is a former Sixth Man of the Year, had a career year last season. He averaged 17.5 points per game, the most ever for him in a season. Before his trade to the Rockets, he was averaging 18.6 a game with the Lakers. Williams finished the season top-three in votes for Sixth Man of the Year.
Tomorrow, Williams will be one of six Clippers introduced at a press conference. Weeks after the trade was announced, it will finally be good to see him officially announced as a Clipper.
Clipper Nation is still excited to get a glimpse of Williams and see what he can do. If this past weekend is any representation, then there is definitely a lot to be excited about.
