As the Milwaukee Bucks season came to an end at the hands of Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat on Tuesday night, veteran forward Marvin Williams said it will be the last NBA game he plays.

According to Marc Spears of The Undefeated, Williams said he plans on retiring from the NBA after a 15-year career.

“I’ve been very blessed. God has been very, very good to me,” he told Spears.

Williams, 34, was drafted by the Hawks with the second overall pick in 2005 and made the 2005-06 All-Rookie Team.

He was traded to the Utah Jazz for Devin Harris in 2012 where he played two seasons before signing with the Charlotte Hornets as a free agent in 2016 where he spent the next six seasons before ultimately finishing his career with the Milwaukee Bucks this past season.

Williams never quite lived up to expectations, though, failing to make an All-Star team in his career.  He was still a productive player, averaging 10.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game in his career.
