Portland Trail Blazers guard Mo Williams said on Friday that he will be looking for a three-year deal when he opts out of the second year of his contract to become a free agent in July.

Williams said previously that he intended to opt out but wanted to return to Portland. The news here is the length of the contract he will be seeking. It is unclear whether or not the Blazers will be willing to offer him what he wants.

The point guard played a key role this season, averaging 9.7 points and 4.3 assists off the bench in 24.8 minutes per game. Portland appeared to miss him when he was out with a strained groin in its series against the San Antonio Spurs.
