Changing of the Point Guard: What Deron Williams Trade Means for New Jersey Nets

Well, that came out of nowhere.  

Early Wednesday, just one day before the NBA trade deadline, the Utah Jazz and New Jersey Nets decided to join the fray by agreeing on a trade involving Jazz PG Deron Williams, Nets PG Devin Harris, Nets PF Derrick Favors and draft picks brought in by the Golden State Warriors.

This trade makes waves throughout the NBA, as most thought Harris would end up with the Dallas Mavericks or Portland Trail Blazers, not the Jazz.  

His destination is unexpected, as is the fact that Williams, the franchise point guard, was considered so toxic by the Jazz that it warranted a trade.

Now that the news has broken, names are finalized and buzz has started on ESPN, it's time for some reaction to the trade and the implications it might have going forward.

The Nets have clearly marked a competitive strategy for the future, and this is what the Williams-Harris trade means for the team.
