Instead of shipping him out, the Clippers chose to re-up, with the third year of his contract a team option.

The 31-year-old Williams has scored 40 points or more four times in 2017-18, including a career-best 50 in the Clippers' victory January 10 over the defending National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors.

But now it appears as though Williams will be staying put- a move that makes sense given he provides fans with an exciting player to watch and a piece that could help bridge the new era Clippers while they reconfigure the rest of their roster.

Williams is averaging 23.3 points during the best season of his career and had been mentioned as a trade possibility in the final year of a contract that is paying him $7 million this season.

Maruti Suzuki India , India's top-selling vehicle maker, launched the new Swift on Thursday with prices starting at Rs 4.99 lakh. Both the engines get five speed manual transmission as standard, while AMT is optional on the Vxi/Vdi and the Zxi/Zdi variants.

Williams, 31, is in his first season with the Clippers. Memphis is trying to get a first-round pick for Evans, and Boston, Denver and Philadelphia are among the teams most interested in acquiring Evans.

It has been an extremely challenging season for the Clippers.

With the NBA's trade deadline rapidly approaching on Thursday and the Thunder entering Tuesday's game against the Warriors on a four-game losing streak, there is little doubt that the team could use a shot in the arm.

The 2014-15 Sixth Man of the Year has averaged 13.5 points in his 12-year career.

Ford Motor (NYSE:F) Lowered to Buy at Vetr
Barra's performance looks especially good next to arch-rival Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F), whose stock is down 16% just in 2018. In order to know the value of a stock, there is need to compare its current price to its likely trading price in the future.

The Clippers will continue to pursue trades for Avery Bradley and DeAndre Jordan as they look to clear cap space to pursue big name free agents this summer.

While Los Angeles isn't out of the playoff race, their Griffin deal was widely seen as a move towards rebuilding.

The agreement should silence rumors that the Clippers will part with Williams before this week's trade deadline.

Williams has been the subject of multiple trade rumors in the past few weeks, but he can not be dealt for six months after signing a contract extension.
