Warriors Express Interest in Lou Will

According to an ESPN.com report, the Warriors may be considering making an offer to 76ers restricted free agent Louis Williams.

The ESPN story quoted one “plugged-in” source as believing the Warriors “are planning to make a “big run’ at (Williams).”

Golden State is roughly $4.5 million under the salary cap after the Lakers declined to match the Warriors’ offer sheet to Ronny Turiaf, meaning it could offer Williams as much as $26 million over five years.

The Sixers would have seven days to match a signed offer sheet for Williams or Andre Iguodala, who is also a restricted free agent.  Golden State is looking for another point/combo guard to help Monta Ellis share the load after Baron Davis signed with the LA Clippers.

In other Sixer News: The Sixers inked Marreese Speights, the 16th overall pick in June’s NBA draft on Friday.

Speights, a 6-foot-10 PF from Florida, will earn about $2.6 million in the first two years of the contract. The team holds an option for two additional years.
