A frustrated Deron Williams said Wednesday that the Nets need to snap out of their season-long funk: nyp.st/1DQGpc5

Steve Luhm

I thought it was interesting that Dallas, in search of available point guards, pursued Rajon Rando over Deron Williams.

Stefan Bondy

Give Mark Cuban props.Didn't take long to rebuild after gutting title team. He said after Deron turned them down Mavs would be better off.

Mike Mazzeo

Deron Williams, Joe Johnson and Brook Lopez would be the highest paid players on the #Mavericks. Dallas has no player making $15+million.

Devin Kharpertian

Worst 10 players in 2P% this year (min. 200 attempts): Wiggins, DeRozan, Josh Smith, Alec Burks, Kemba, Kobe, Deron, MCW, Lawson, Hibbert.

Gary Lee

Ha, maybe seven years ago. RT @dreDwil14: @Gary Lee Deron Williams maybe?

Steve Luhm

No, I don't think Jazz want Deron Williams. Not the same player he was when he left. Plus he's owed over $43M in 2015-16 and 2016-17.

Steve Luhm

Deron Williams must have heard back-to-Utah rumor. Scored 11 points on 5 of 15 shooting and five turnovers in Nets' loss at Toronto.

Devin Kharpertian

The one thing Deron Williams still has: many of Plumlee’s easy baskets are/were created by him. Beyond that, it’s been ugly.

Devin Kharpertian

Seriously, I think the most common thing ever said about Deron Williams the player is that he has problems finishing at the rim.

Devin Kharpertian

People always talk about it. RT @chrisbk80: Deron has to be one of the worst finishers at the rim I've seen and nobody talks about it

Devin Kharpertian

Bad night for Deron Williams, again.

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams shooting 3-9 from inside the arc. Bad running theme.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets have been executing on offense, but Deron just picked up his second foul and Mirza may have re-tweaked his hip pointer.

Anyone know the story on @Deron Williams shoes last night? http://t.co/5hn4SfyVwU

Rod Boone

After #Nets lost to Heat, Deron said: “I don't think we played as well as we should've and wanted to tonight." newsday.com/sports/basketb…

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams then throws another bad pass.

Mike Mazzeo

Deron just committed two critical turnovers regardless of foul or no foul calls. #Nets throwing this game away.

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams, who has been great distributing tonight, just threw an awful pass, then got hit with a bad foul call.

Tim Bontemps

Atrocious call by Tony Brothers there. Deron Williams didn't even touch Luol Deng, who then clearly traveled.

Mike Mazzeo

Wade tweaked something. Deron may have too. #Nets down 85-79 with 4:54 to play. Game there for the taking if they want it.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets shot 6-for-17 in the second quarter. Deron and Joe are 3-for-11 combined. #Heat 55, BK 45 at the half.

Rod Boone

Looks like Deron is paying homage to Jeffrey Gamblero with neon green kicks: http://t.co/5b9OpqC6ZS

Mike Mazzeo

Looks like Deron Williams is wearing neon green sneakers tonight

Tim Bontemps

Deron Williams also has neon green shoes on tonight to honor Jeffrey Gamblero.

Tim Bontemps

Nets starters: Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Sergey Karasev, Kevin Garnett, Mason Plumlee.

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams on how he can reverse the trend of not making shots: “make more shots."

Mike Mazzeo

Deron says his recent struggles from two-point range just simply come down to him not making the shots.

Jody Genessy

There's nothing behind the Deron Williams-to-Utah rumor. Jazz haven't discussed trading for the ex-Utah guard, and it won't happen. #sources

Kurt Helin

Report: Nets want to trade only one, maybe two, of Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Brook Lopez – not all three dlvr.it/7rCqXg

Rod Boone

Brook on reports of #Nets listening to offers for him, Joe & Deron: "I mean, I’m kind of surprised you guys thought I knew about that."

Mike Mazzeo

Deron asked, "Is this Brook bash day? What's going on?" I joked back, "No. That was Saturday."

Alex Raskin

"You knew he was going to be there pretty much every game. You knew the energy he was going to bring" -- @Deron Williams on @JeffreyGamblero

Jason Jones

Maybe Corbin puts in some of Jerry Sloan's style of offense. That would serve Cousins well, but do you have your Stockton or young Deron?

Rod Boone

Deron: “It's been a while since we've been on the right side of a blowout, so it definitely feels good.” #Nets newsday.com/sports/basketb…

Lenn Robbins

"We showed signs of putting a team away." @Deron Williams on the #nets blowout win

Lenn Robbins

Great locker room moment. When @Jarrett Jack acknowledges he was a little tired, @Deron Williams asks "why you tired?" #nets

Tim Bontemps

I know Hollins usually does this, but hard to find a good reason for Deron Williams to still be in this game. Nets up 105-75 with 6:20 left.

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams checks in with 6:48 left in the fourth quarter and the Nets up 102-75.

Mike Mazzeo

Deron Williams is having a very nice start to the third quarter #Nets

Devin Kharpertian

Deron’s now 15-60 (an even 25%) in his last 7.5 games from inside the arc. Didn’t have a bad first half, but damn, man.

Mike Mazzeo

Deron Williams can't make a shot. No Brook Lopez clogging the floor and ball stopping. Joe Johnson lovin' life.

Devin Kharpertian

For the record, the Nets are the fourth-worst 3P% team in the NBA. Only Deron Williams & Joe Johnson hitting at above the league average.

Rod Boone

#Nets starters tonight vs. #Hornets: Deron, Sergey Karasev, Joe, Cory Jefferson, Mason. So it's the first career start for Cory.

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams has shot 26.3% (15-57) from inside the arc in the last 7 games.

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams cracks on Kobe after 0-8 night: "guess I should've taken 20 more shots."
