2012 NBA Free Agency Rumors: Lou Williams Says He's Leaving Philadelphia 76ers

Free agent guard Lou Williams took to twitter on Friday to say that he won't be returning to the Philadelphia 76ers next season.

The 76ers have had an active Friday, acquiring Nick Young on a reported one-year, $6-million deal and using the amnesty clause on Elton Brand.

Williams came off the bench to average a team-leading 14.9 points last season to go along with 3.5 assists and 2.8 rebounds. During Philadelphia's surprise playoff run to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, Williams averaged 11.5 points, 3.0 assists and 2.1 rebounds. As a 25-year-old with a real ability to score, he is likely to generate significant interest around the league.
