News: Williams and the Cavaliers agreed in principle to a two-year, $4.3 million deal Monday, Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reports.
Impact: The veteran was rumored to be interested in returning to Cleveland, where he played alongside LeBron James from 2008-10. Williams has bounced around since then, but he remains an excellent scorer and can play both guard spots. The Cavs remain intent on bringing back Matthew Dellavedova, but the signing of Williams could mean J.R. Smith's return may be in jeopardy.

News: Williams is heading back to Cleveland to team up with LeBron James again. Williams tweeted on Monday night that he is going back to the Cavaliers, where he was an All-Star playing alongside James in 2009. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.
Impact: Williams started last season with the Minnesota Timberwolves and was traded to the Charlotte Hornets, where he averaged 17.2 points in 27 games.

News: Williams is "more than interested" in making a return to Cleveland, Northeast Ohio Media Group reports.
Impact: Williams, who will be an unrestricted free agent come July 1, is apparently open to reuniting with LeBron James in Cleveland, where he played from 2008-10. The 32-year-old split last season between the Timberwolves and Hornets, averaging 12.2 points per game for Minnesota and 17.2 for Charlotte. While he's not the player he was five years ago, Williams remains a very serviceable point guard and would be a near-ideal option off the bench behind Kyrie Irving. However, Williams will likely seek a multi-year commitment, and the Cavaliers may not be in a position to be able to offer more than the taxpayer MLE or veteran's minimum. Ultimately, it may come down to whether Williams would be willing to sign on with the favorite in the East at a discount.
