Lou Williams, Kendrick Perkins trade barbs over Magic City trip

Lou Williams, Kendrick Perkins

Former NBA big man Kendrick Perkins ripped Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard Lou Williams on ESPN for his Magic City trip incident.

Perkins said it’s disturbing that a guy like New Orleans Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson can act more mature than Williams, who has been in the NBA since 2005.

Upon seeing Perkins’ comments about him, Williams went right back at Perkins and vice versa on Twitter.

After attending his grandfather’s funeral in Atlanta, Lou Williams stopped by the Magic City gentleman’s club for a short time on Thursday night to pick up some food.

Unfortunately for Williams, he was photographed by rapper Jack Harlow and the NBA opened up an investigation on the three-time Sixth Man of the Year because of that.

The NBA announced on Sunday that Williams will need to serve a 10-day quarantine period, meaning the scoring guard will miss the Clippers’ first two seeding games of the Orlando restart.

Before the 2019-20 season was suspended in March, Williams was averaging 18.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game for the Clippers while shooting 41.6 percent from the floor, 36.3 percent from beyond the arc and 86.3 percent from the free-throw line.

The Clippers have the second-best record in the Western Conference standings. The team is fortunate that the NBA didn’t suspend Williams for any postseason games.

His team will square off with the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday in the first official game for both teams in the Orlando bubble.

After that, the Clippers are set for a matchup with the Pelicans on Saturday.
