It’s Final: Deron Williams Stays With Nets
It’s Final: Deron Williams decides to stay with the Nets.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Williams is a good start, but the Nets will need a lot more if they want to win.
The wait is over. Deron Williams announced on twitter today that he will be remaining with the Nets. (See screen shot of his tweet bellow) Williams had been the most sought after guard this off-season and it was speculated he could end-up on any number of teams. In the end, he decided it was best for him to stay put.
Although the Nets are happy with Williams’s decision to stay with the Nets, his massive contract will make it very difficult for Brooklyn to make any other off-season moves to improve their chances of winning some games next year. This might be a case of winning the battle and losing the war. If Brooklyn could work out some sort of 3 or 4 team trade to acquire Howard as well, they’d be starting off in a new city with new life, but the word on the street is Orlando doesn’t believe Brooklyn has enough to offer for Howard. Williams might have to get used to losing.
