UNDATED (AP) _ Two valuable NBA backcourt performers are accepting deals to stay with their teams.

Milwaukee Bucks point guard Mo Williams has reportedly agreed to a six-year, $52 million deal. That's according to a report on the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Web site. He's rejecting an offer from the Miami Heat. Williams averaged just over 17 points, nearly 5 rebounds and 6 assists last year.

Washington Wizards have retained the services of shooting guard DeShawn Stevenson. No terms of the deal have been released but reports say the pact is worth $15 million over four years. Stevenson averaged 11.2 points last season for the Wizards.
