Unless the New Jersey Nets find a way to acquire Dwight Howard from the the Orlando Magic, Deron Williams will not be with the team next season.
Williams was traded from the Utah Jazz at the trade deadline last year amid fears that the All-Star point guard would not re-sign for the long term, and the team would be left with nothing.
The Nets are now in that same spot and could lose out on their star point guard along with Howard.
Williams recently told Hoopsworld.com that, “My priority is winning a championship, I don’t know where I’m going to be next season, and I have to be ready to take my game to the next level, wherever I am.”
This same report indicated that Williams likes to play in Dallas, and he would be a good fit there. The Mavericks are better suited to add Williams as a free agent, but there's an outside chance they get desperate and acquire him through trade.
Deron's All-Star play has been the lone bright spot on a struggling Nets team this season.
