In terms of overall play, it’s hard not to put Deron Williams on the top of the list. He has proved he’s a scoring machine. His 21 points per game may not increase this season.
Finally, Billy King has given Williams some relief and an All-Star shooting guard in Joe Johnson. Although overlooked in my opinion, it appeared Deron would check out of games last season. He ducked the media several times, complained about the Prudential Center and also battled injury.
With a new home in Brooklyn, plenty of surrounding talent and also coming off an Olympic medal, expect Williams to be extremely energized and ready to make some noise in the Eastern Conference. Brooklyn should fight for first in the Atlantic Division alongside Boston.
