Lou Williams did not have much fun in Atlanta after signing as a free agent.

He expects that to change now that he is a Raptor, having been acquired recently in a deal with the Hawks, along with rookie centre Lucas Nogueira in a cost-cutting move by Atlanta.

“For both sides, moving forward, it wasn’t going to work,” Williams told a small contingent of media in Toronto on Friday.

“It’s been very delightful just being around these guys. We had (a Raptors team) dinner in Vegas. They are hungry, they want to be respected, they want people to take them seriously. I love a great challenge, I love playing with guys who want to be challenged, who want to be great.

“I’ve never played with any of these guys, so I’m just excited to be around all of them.”
