Williams started playing basketball early in his childhood. Williams played his high school basketball under Roger Fleetwood who is famous for nurturing raw talent.

He was also voted as the “Most Athletic” Senior Superlative in his school days. Williams led South Gwinnett High school the 5A Georgia State Championship. Lou Williams won many records for himself as well for his High-school team. Williams was destined to play at the University of Georgia but instead received a surprise call and got declared in the 2005 NBA draft. He was picked by the Philadelphia 76ers, with him being the 45th overall pick in the draft.
The Memphis Born guard found it hard in his early days in the league as he was unable to get enough time on the court. He was used as the sixth man by the 76ers. Lou gradually learned the art of coming off the bench and scoring crucial points for his team. And this art became the trademark of the rest of his career.

Lou Williams Relationships
When it comes to relationships, Lou Williams isn’t the best at manhandling these terms. Williams has been in a relationship with Rece Mitchell since 2014. The two have shared a fair love with each other and have three kids in between them, named Syx Williams, Jada Williams, Zoey Williams.
Williams has showered his love for Rece Mitchell several times in the media as well. But the relationship between the two is not very simple as it appears to be. Williams allegedly was involved with another girl, named Ashley Henderson in 2014 besides Mitchell. And this was not a very good sign for the relationship between Williams and Mitchell. Williams sneakingly dated Ashley Henderson during this time and when things got out of control, he ended his alliance with Henderson. Now Williams and Mitchell are happily living with each other and seemed to have developed trust that formed the beginning of this interconnection.
