Mo Williams has decided to remain with the Cleveland Cavaliers for one more season.

Having played just 41 times for the franchise last season, many expected the point guard to call it a day on his career after 13 years in the NBA.

However, after Matthew Dellavedova opted to leave the Q Arena for the Milwaukee Bucks, Williams believes he can offer the franchise something as backup to Kyrie Irving.

With the only two options Jordan McRae and Kay Felder, Williams can be a perfect medium as he offers valuable minutes and helps the youngers mature into their future roles with the organisation.

He told "Just talking with my family, that was the most important thing. And also, just the fact that they didn't have anybody experienced enough behind Kyrie [Irving]. We have Jordan [McRae] and we have Kay [Felder], and those guys are going to develop and they're going to be really good, but they need some experience.

"I just thought about repeating, thought about another championship, and I didn't want to put the Cavs in a situation where [they didn't have a] guy [who] could come in and play 5-10 minutes that could help them win and be a difference. I didn't want to put the Cavs in that situation at the end of the day."
