Tim Bontemps

Multiple league sources confirm Nets-Kings talks about Deron Williams. All stress deal isn't close, and that Mason Plumlee is going nowhere.

Rod Boone

League source confirms #Nets had discussions with Kings about Deron but nothing happening with that at moment. Mason isn't getting traded.

Lenn Robbins

The @Sacramento Kings have coveted @Mason Plumlee since he played with @DeMarcus Cousins on USA Team. Plumlee isn't going anywhere #Nets

David Aldridge

Sources indicating Kings-Nets talks on @Deron Williams, for now, not far advanced. Discussions "not that hot," per league source.

Devin Kharpertian

Also, I really wish this hasn't broken on my way to JFK. The Nets have a way of having things happen right as I go AWOL.

Devin Kharpertian

"Untouchable" doesn't mean "top-20 player." it means "the only other healthy Nets center is Jerome Jordan."

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets would clear Deron's $22.3 million for 2016-17 off their books. Collison makes $5.2 million in 16-17. Thompson has a partial guarantee.

Alex Raskin

Regarding the @Adrian Wojnarowski report about the #Nets, #Kings and Deron Williams: Sacto made the call and talks are not ongoing.

James Ham

Brooklyn Nets rank 26th in Pace on the season at 91.8. Kings 16th at 93.1.

source says no official deal was offered by Kings yet. Just talk. Nets major roadblock is they won't give up Mason Plumlee in any deal.

Alex Kennedy

The Nets and Kings are discussing a trade that could land Deron Williams in Sacramento, per @Adrian Wojnarowski: basketballinsiders.com/kings-nets-tal…

Devin Kharpertian

this is where trade exception could really help Nets. Can swallow contract up to 3.4 million that doesn't match D-Will's.

Stefan Bondy

Source confirms @Adrian Wojnarowski report on trade talk between Kings and Nets involving DWill. But "not close at all" is the word.

Mike Mazzeo

Deron Williams since Nov. 12: 14.4 ppg, 6.8 apg, 37.1 fg pct #Nets

Gary Lee

RUMOR: Pacific Division could be getting a lot tougher as the Kings, Nets are discussing a deal for Deron Williams. lakersnation.com/nba-rumors-kin…

Ohm Youngmisuk

Sources confirm @Adrian Wojnarowski report that Nets + Kings have talked possible trade involving Deron Williams. As Woj reports, nothing imminent

Howard Beck

As @Adrian Wojnarowski reported, Kings want Plumlee in a deal for Deron Williams. Nets consider Plumlee virtually untouchable.

Ryan Wolstat

Also doesn’t make any sense for Nets to give away Plumlee to move Deron Williams. Or maybe it makes perfect sense? #billyking

Ryan Wolstat

I get Kings wanting Rondo, but the carcass that is Deron Williams for that price tag? Doesn’t make much sense unless Nets sweeten pot.

Sean Highkin

Nobody the Kings would send back really has the kind of cache necessary to elevate the Nets' brand. Biggest obstacle in the deal IMO.

Yannis Koutroupis

Per @Adrian Wojnarowski, Nets and Kings talking Deron Williams trade. Kings would give up Darren Collison, Jason Thompson and Derrick Williams.

Sam Amico

As I mentioned on air last night on #CavsLive, Kings have strong interest in Nets PG Deron Williams. Teams now discussing deal, per Yahoo.

Demian Belmonte

A cambio de Deron, los Kings enviarían a Nets a Darren Collison, Jason Thompson y Derrick Williams.

David Locke

Report from @Adrian Wojnarowski that the Kings are in talk with Nets about a Deron Williams trade.

Bob Finnan

#Cavs G/F Mike Miller (ankle) held out of practice on Saturday. He tweaked ankle in Friday's win over Nets.

Michael Scotto

Deron Williams had an MRI today that revealed a low-grade right calf strain. He's listed as DOUBTFUL for tomorrow's game, the Nets announce.

Michael Scotto

Brooklyn Nets say Brook Lopez has begun light basketball activities. Lopez remains out for tomorrow's game and he will be reevaluated daily.

Lenn Robbins

MRI on @Deron Williams right calf reveals a strain. He is doubtful for Sunday game @barclayscenter vs #pistons #nets it could have been worse

Tim Bontemps

Nets say Brook Lopez is out and Deron Williams is doubtful for Sunday vs. Detroit, and that both will be evaluated daily until they return.

Mike Mazzeo

Williams is doubtful for Sunday. Has what is described as a low grade calf strain #Nets

Tom Lorenzo

Nets say D-Will had an MRI today that revealed a low-grade right calf strain. He is listed as doubtful for Sunday.

Ohm Youngmisuk

Deron Williams doubtful vs DET on Sunday. MRI revealed low-grade right calf strain according to Nets

Rod Boone

No Brook vs. #Pistons tomorrow, #Nets say. But he's begun light basketball activities and will be re-evaluated daily.

Ohm Youngmisuk

Nets say Brook Lopez has begun light basketball activities but is still OUT vs Det on Sunday. Will be reevaluated daily per Nets

Mike Mazzeo

Lopez has begun light basketball activity. He's out tomorrow and is day to day until he returns #Nets

Tim Bontemps

For those saying it is because pieces don't fit: two years ago, Nets finished ninth in offense with Reggie Evans & Gerald Wallace starting.

Tim Bontemps

And given what the Nets have, you'd have to think they'll get better on offense. And if they do, they should start winning more consistently

Tim Bontemps

If the Nets were 13th in offense and 24th in defense, that would've made a lot more sense to me given the personnel they have to work with.

Tim Bontemps

Through 25 games, Nets are tied for 13th in defensive efficiency, but are only 24th offensively, averaging less than a point per possession.

Tim Bontemps

In a season full of confusing things about this Nets team, the most confusing thing to me? The fact they're better on defense than offense.

Tim Bontemps

The Nets had their chances, but couldn't take down the Cavaliers in Cleveland as they dropped their third straight: nyp.st/1zeAH0G

Mike Mazzeo

Amazing how #Nets go from second in first Q scoring margin to 29th in second Q scoring margin. Starts of second/fourth Q have hurt them bad.
