Former Tide Star Mo Williams Traded to Cleveland

MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Cleveland Cavaliers are getting some help for LeBron James. High-scoring Milwaukee point guard and former Alabama standout Mo Williams is headed to Cleveland.

Williams becomes James' new backcourt mate as part of a three-team trade involving the Bucks and Oklahoma City.

In exchange for Williams, who averaged 17.2 points per game last season, the Bucks will receive Damon Jones from Cleveland along with guard Luke Ridnour and forward Adrian Griffin from Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City will get veteran forward Joe Smith from Cleveland.
