Lou Williams is drawing “significant” interest around the NBA, with one source pegging Williams’ worth "in the Thaddeus Young range."

Young signed a five-year, $43 million deal last December.

"It's impossible to gauge [how much a team would be willing to pay] because there are so many teams who have money and Lou certainly is a good player," Sixers president Rod Thorn said. "The natural inclination is for teams who have money to spend some of it, of course. The last couple of years, there are a lot of teams that have gotten way under the salary cap and I'm sure that Lou will get some interest from teams."

Williams plans to opt out of the final $5.176 million of his deal.
