However, Williams, 34, a 12-year veteran, said the record of a second straight deep playoff series that culminated in a 20-game season had taken a toll on him. In fact, Williams declined to say he would be back in 2023 when asked if he was planning to retire.

“It’s been a long season,” Williams said. “And after two long seasons in a row, it’s getting pretty grueling for a 34-year-old guy like me. I will be 35 at the start of the season (2023).
