08:45 AM ET 06.29 | Mo Williams will re-sign as a free agent with the Utah Jazz only if he remains the starting point guard next season, a source told Yahoo! Sports on Friday. The demand comes a day after the Jazz traded up in the draft to get University of Michigan star Trey Burke, who was selected ninth on Thursday night. "He's not going to come back as a backup," the source said of Williams. As for Burke, he told reporters Thursday, "My goal is to come in and start right away. I look forward to coming in and helping the team win." Williams, a 10-year NBA veteran, averaged 12.9 points and 6.2 assists during his injury-plagued 2012-13 season in which he played 46 games. The Jazz were adamant in stating their need for a point guard in this year's draft class.

Williams could start next to Burke at SG. If Utah wants to re-sign him. They might decide to go with a youth movement.

Just cut this guy already. Mo talks like he's some kindof a franchise guy. He got 1 Al star nod thanks to Lebron and since then he thinks he's an elite PG.
Burke needs to start, and needs to be thrown in the ocean to fast track his learning. They don't need Mo.

Mo thinks too much of himself. He's always been like that since his Bucks days.
