Former 76ers guard Lou Williams is expected to sign with the Atlanta Hawks, according to reports.

ESPN.com reported Wednesday that Williams has agreed to a multi-year deal with Atlanta. That came after Williams posted on Twitter that he is headed to the Hawks:

ATL... LOUWILLVILLE.. happy to be apart of a team thats similar to the Sixers.. Young, athletic, and hardworking.. ‪#highlightfactory‬

Hawks general manager Danny Ferry - who at one point was a leading candidate to take that position with the 76ers - only told the Associated Press that "we're still involved in talks."
