MILWAUKEE (AP) -The Cleveland Cavaliers are getting some help for LeBron James.
High-scoring Milwaukee point guard Mo Williams is headed to Cleveland to become James' new backcourt mate as part of a three-team trade involving Milwaukee and Oklahoma City.
Agents for Williams and Desmond Mason said Wednesday a six-player deal is being finalized that reshapes the rebuilding Bucks while giving Cleveland an additional scoring threat.
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.
Mark Bartelstein, Williams' agent, and Roger Montgomery, Mason's agent, confirmed the deal to The Associated Press. The trade was previously reported by ESPN.com and media outlets in all three markets.
