Jazz free agent Maurice Williams signs offer sheet with Bucks

RACINE, Wis. (AP) -- Utah Jazz restricted free agent Maurice ``Mo'' Williams has signed an offer sheet from the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Jazz have 15 days to decide whether to match the Bucks' offer and keep the guard in Salt Lake City.

A Bucks spokesman confirmed Saturday that Williams signed the offer sheet Friday.

Williams' agent, Mark Bartelstein, told The Journal Times of Racine the offer was worth $5.5 million over three years. Williams earned $770,000 last season.

``At this point, there's not much he can do but sit back and wait,'' Bartelstein was quoted as telling the newspaper. ``He likes Utah very much, but they have two other point guards, so it's tough getting playing time there.''

The 6-foot-1 Williams was selected in the second round, 47th overall, of the 2003 draft. He averaged five points, 1.3 assists in 57 games last season.
