NBA Trade Speculation: 5 Reasons Deron Williams Should Leave Utah Jazz

As one of the elite point guards in the NBA, Deron Williams rarely gets called for traveling.

By Feb. 24 at 3 p.m., Williams should change it up and move out of Utah.

With the trade deadline 10 days from now, it seems like almost every player gets looped into one trade or another. Williams is not impervious to these rumors as his name has been tossed around the trading block.

ESPN's Marc Stein reported Jerry Sloan's resignation and cited two sources close to the situation who speculated that Williams directly caused Sloan to retire after 23 seasons as coach, leading to controversy about Williams' attitude.

Regardless of the validity of the rumors, Williams and the Jazz have not been on the same page lately. Since starting the season 27-13 and looking like a contender, Utah has lost 11 of its last 15 games.

With the Jazz heading in the wrong direction, Williams should bolt out of Salt Lake City and get a fresh start.
