The 76ers agreed to terms today with restricted free agent guard Louis Williams on a 5-year contract.
Additional terms of the deal were not immediately known.
"It's a good deal for Louis," Merle Scott, Williams' agent, told the Daily News. "It gives him a chance to grow with a team that's building and allows him to stay with the team he came into the league with."
Sixers president/general manager Ed Stefanski declined comment.
Williams, the 45th pick in the 2005 NBA draft as a high school senior out of South Gwinnett High School in Snelville, Ga., appeared in 80 games last season and averaged 11.3 points in 23 minutes.
