MILWAUKEE (AP) -Milwaukee Bucks point guard Mo Williams reportedly agreed to a six-year, $52 million deal, rejecting an offer from the Miami Heat.
``The entire organization made it clear how important Mo was to them and their future,'' Williams' agent, Mark Bartelstein said in Saturday editions of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Bucks' spokesman Dan Smyczek wouldn't comment on the report, but said they were making progress.
``We're optimistic on signing the contract but there are still details to work out,'' he said.
The Miami Heat had offered Williams a five-year, $31.4 million deal, the maximum it could give under salary cap guidelines, the newspaper reported.
``Obviously, it's a great organization, with Dwyane Wade and Shaq (Shaquille O'Neal),'' Bartelstein said. ``They just won a championship a year ago.''
Williams averaged 17.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 6.1 assists last year.
Several contract options were still being discussed regarding the fifth and sixth contract years. Williams could have player options for those years.
Bartelstein didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press on Saturday.
