Mo Williams could play heavy minutes for Cavaliers

Mo Williams is back with the Cavaliers, after playing for five different teams since leaving Cleveland during the 2011 season.

But the 12-year veteran can still play, as evidenced by the 17.2 points per game he averaged for the Hornets in the second part of last season while playing in 30.8 minutes per contest.

The fact that Williams showed he can handle those types of minutes is the likely reason that Cleveland chose to sign him. With Kyrie Irving expected to miss the first chunk of the season as he recovers from knee Surgery, Williams could very well be expected to play a starter's share of the point guard minutes.
