Charles Gardner reports the Bucks could be close to a deal with Mo Williams. The latest word is that the Bucks have offered a six-year, $51 million deal, which works out to slightly more per season than the previous five-year, $42 million offer from a couple days ago. If the contract includes max raises then the longer deal would actually have a slightly lower starting salary, and it's possible there could be an early termination provision as well.
UPDATE (on the update): Gery Woelfel is also reporting Williams is closing in on a deal with the Bucks. He figures six years, $48 million, but doesn't mention the reported five year, $42 million offer the Bucks supposedly made on Thursday.
Mark Bartelstein, the agent for thetalented young point guard, said he expects a contract could be signed soon.
"We're geting close to doing something,'' Bartelstein said in a telephone interview Friday night. "It's been a process, but I think there's a good chance something could be done in the next couple of days.''
