Los Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams insinuated that he may retire if he is traded from the Clippers.
A troll on Instagram suggested that Williams could be traded, to which he responded with “this is my last stop champ.”

Williams, 34, has spent the last four seasons with the Clippers.
After a slow start to the 2020-21 campaign, Williams has come on as of late to boost his averages this season to 12.4 points, 2.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game.
He is shooting 42.1 percent from the field and 39.6 percent from 3-point range in 22.6 minutes per night.
The Clippers are looking to make a playoff run after they blew a 3-1 lead against the Denver Nuggets in last season’s Western Conference semifinals.
If Williams does threaten to retire, it could put the Clippers in a tough spot if they do want to trade the three-time NBA Sixth Man of the Year at the March 25th deadline.
