The music is still playing in the NBA's annual summer session of musical chairs, but Lou Williams has yet to find a comfortable seat.

Not that he won't, eventually, though he may have to wait for some of his fellow free agents to take their places first.

Williams announced via Twitter on Friday that the Philadelphia 76ers had pulled the chair out from under him:

 

They've since replaced Williams, their leading scorer last season, with former Washington Wizards and Los Angeles Clippers swingman Nick Young on a one-year pact. The exact cause of the split remains somewhat murky, though it's within reason to suggest that money (and Lou's likely demands for a truckload of it) had something to do with it.

Still, Williams shouldn't have too much trouble in his search for employment. After all, he's young (26 in October), he's quick, he's capable of getting his own shot and he knows full well how to put the ball in the basket.

And, after spending seven years on the bench in Philly, Williams might yet grow into an even more productive player in a starting role.

With his particular talents, Williams would do well to wind up with any of these teams.
