NBA Free Agency 2012: Lou Williams Announces Departure From 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers' decision to sign Nick Young to a one-year contract already put the future of free-agent guard Louis Williams in jeopardy. Now, it has essentially become official, as Williams tweeted that he expects his tenure in Philadelphia to be over.

It's unclear whether Williams' tweet was due to him being told anything by the organization or just the news of Young's signing, but it's not a huge surprise either way. Despite leading the 76ers in scoring off the bench last year, Williams was a potential goner because of his likely price tag and his poor defense.

It remains to be seen where Williams ultimately ends up, but as one of the league's top sixth men, he will likely be valued by somebody.
