While Toronto Raptors fans knew there was every possibility it would happen, the news that Lou Williams is leaving still comes as a slight shock. As reported by thescore.com, he has signed a three-year, $21 million deal with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Williams may have only spent one season with the Raptors, but what a season it was. He averaged a career-high 15.5 points per game, with all 80 of his appearances coming off the bench.

The 28-year old set a career-high with 152 three-pointers, and led or tied for the team lead in scoring 18 times. His influence on the Raptors was invaluable, as he led Toronto with a 86.1 free throw percentage.

To top off a remarkable season, Williams became the first Raptors players to be named NBA sixth man of the year. In honor of “Sweet Lou”, here are five highlights* from his time in Southern Ontario.
