The Nets are pretty much the opposite. Williams, the Nets’ biggest free agent signing since Vince Carter in 2007, has a unique perspective into the big market-small market debate, having played most of his career in Utah. “To me, it really wasn’t big market or small market. It was kind of my options (when I was a free agent). I got traded here. I don’t know if I would’ve looked here if I wasn’t traded here,” Williams told the Daily News. “For someone like (Durant), I think it makes a bigger difference because of the endorsements he’d command in a market like this. I mean, look at what he’s already doing in Oklahoma City. But at the same time, maybe he’s such a big name that it doesn’t matter where he’s at. If LeBron would’ve stayed in Cleveland, he still gets $150 (million) from Nike.” New York Daily News

That's why Perkins is a big believer that when Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett return to the TD Garden on Sunday for the first time since being traded to Brooklyn, it will be an emotional time for both players. Especially Pierce who spent his entire NBA career with Boston until the blockbuster trade this summer sent him and Garnett along with Jason Terry, to the Nets. "I expect it to be crazy," said Perkins. "I expect them to get a pretty good welcome back which is well deserved, I think." CSNNE.com

A footnote relating to the Boston Celtics-Memphis Grizzlies-Oklahoma City Thunder trade that was completed earlier this week: the Grizzlies didn't just get shooting guard Courtney Lee and a 2016 second-round pick (via the Celtics), they were also given $1.1 million from the Thunder that must be paid within 30 business days. Considering Memphis dealt the expiring deal of Jerryd Bayless ($3.1 million) for Lee's contract that has approximately $11 million combined from this season and next, the extra cash should come in handy.
