The Charlotte Hornets are finalizing a buyout with Marvin Williams, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Williams will go unclaimed on waivers, freeing him to sign any contract with any team within the next few days.

He’s been a steady for the presence since he signed on with the team back in 2014. He was a regular starter for the middle four years he was here, while he played the role of a key reserve in his first and last seasons in Charlotte. He was always the consummate professional and a quintessential teammate.

Williams will be a coveted free agent among contending teams. He’s a low maintenance player that can guard bigger wings on the perimeter and protect the rim against forwards and centers. His three-and-D skill set is always in high demand around the NBA, especially among teams that have dominant ball handlers like the Bucks, Rockets, Lakers, etc.

Update: Marvin Williams will be signing with the Milwaukee Bucks once he clears waiver.
