Ohhhhhh. I will let Deron Williams throw 100 dodgeballs at my face if he returns to play in Utah. That's how confident I am it won't happen.
Austin Rivers averaging 18.4 points per-36 minutes (47.9 FG%) in the 2015 playoffs *Deron Williams avg 13.3 points per-36 minutes (39.1 FG)
They could also find someone to take Joe for close to nothing instead of stretching Deron. Same concept. They need to slash to stay under.
Would be close to impossible to re-sign Brook, Thad, & Mirza AND stay under tax without stretching Deron & making another cost-cutting move.
IF Deron Williams and Nets agree to a buyout (still unlikely), wouldn't rule out return to Utah for point guard. Wouldn't that be something.
King: team will "explore all options" with Deron, Joe, Brook, wouldn't rule out trades
I'm hearing that former Jazzman Deron Williams is in Salt Lake City right now
It might be twisted into an insult, but Hollins saying Deron Williams isn’t a franchise player isn’t a diss. It’s just reality.
Lionel Hollins on Deron Williams: http://t.co/QtCQvdf6WE
No Deron Williams today. He's not speaking.
Deron Williams won't speak to the media today.
Something everyone will blow out of proportion: Hollins does NOT consider Deron Williams a franchise player. Hollins isn't hung up on that.
Deron Williams: "They came out with an agenda."
Nets want to keep Brook and Thad -- both can opt out of deals. They have to keep assets like Brook. But trading Deron+Joe difficult/unlikely
It will be a summer of uncertainty for Nets. This could mark end of Deron-Brook-Joe era. Nets have to continue to get younger, more athletic
Can’t shake the feeling this is the last time we see Deron, Joe, & Brook in the same uniform.
Deron Williams couldn't have had a worse start to second half. Couple turnovers key Hawks' break and the lead is double digits again.
Deron Williams is checking in. He had 35 points in Game 4. In the other 5 games, including tonight, he has a total of 29 points.
