Carmelo Anthony believes Deron Williams will re-sign with Nets

Williams’ contract expires after next season, and the Knicks could have the cap space to sign him. Anthony said. "I haven’t seen it but he’s going to be in New York too, so you’ll see a lot more of that — the competition thing. We got another Subway Series coming."

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Takes one to know one.

New York Knick Carmelo Anthony is in the best position to know the future of New Jersey Net Deron Williams. Both are part of a small clique known as superstars.

And superstars do talk. They travel in the same circle, and often have inside information on fellow superstars before media, agents, or fans.

Anthony believes Williams will re-sign with the Nets next summer, meaning the Knicks may give Chauncey Billups another short-term deal or chase Chris Paul, who will be an unrestricted free agent.

However, there’s another reason Williams may stick with the Nets: the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The league’s financial system will change. The days of the superstar laden team could be over, especially if there’s a hard cap with no loopholes.

The Knicks may have no choice but to pass on adding a superstar floor leader like Williams or Paul. So ‘Melo may end up being right. Just not for the reason he thinks.
