He can still get that extra year with a S&T, right?

I thought that Deron always said that he hates the Lakers, ever since his Jazz days, and would never want to join us.

Nets On Verge Of Getting Commitment From Deron

Image

And the Mavericks -- amid what sources close to the process describe as mounting evidence to suggest that the Nets are on the verge of clinching Deron Williams' commitment to re-sign with them and continue his career in Brooklyn -- are likewise hot after Nash. Nash himself has acknowledged hearing and reading about a lucrative one-year offer to come back to Texas to reunite with close friend Dirk Nowitzki after his emotional departure eight years ago in the event that the Mavericks lose out in the Williams sweepstakes. But sources told ESPN.com this week that the Mavs are prepared to make it a two-year pitch to try to beat out the competition to clinch Nash's return.


Damn.

Crap. A lot posturing and rumoring going on. I wonder if we are even going to try and go after Deron. If he's really close with the Nets, then it's basically moot for us. This has been the problem all along, if he's content to actually make that deal then there is no way for us to get in there. If he's going to really test the waters and perhaps leave that's something else and the Nets would probably rather get someone back. Doesn't seem that way though.

Deron Williams, the most coveted player in this summer's free agent class, will meet with representatives from the Brooklyn Nets and Dallas Mavericks on Monday before deciding which team to sign with this July, according to a source privy to Williams' plan.

Mavericks free-agent point guard Jason Kidd will also join whichever team Williams chooses, sources said.

Williams is spending the weekend playing golf with Kidd in New York's Hamptons, sources say, yet one more indicator that the Nets have at least a fighting chance to keep Williams and add Kidd sometime after free agency begins Sunday.

Kidd, who has indicated that he hopes to serve as a backup to Williams either in Brooklyn or Dallas, also recently purchased a home in East Hampton, a source close to Kidd said.

Another source with business ties to both Kidd and Williams says that the two already have decided to play together for the Nets next season. However, multiple sources say Williams is still torn about his decision.

Williams has said he wants to make the decision before training camp for the U.S. men's Olympic team begins in Las Vegas on July 7.

Yeah, but he only played four games. His numbers in the regular season were rather abysmal. 6 points, 6 assists, 36 FG%.

He got off to a really slow start just like the rest of the league because of the lockout season

His March and April numbers were solid for playing 30 mins a game

March 7.2 points, 3.5 rebs, 5 assists. 39% FG 41% 3s
April 8.5 points 4.7 points, 7.3 assists 47% FG 48% 3s

He woulda done just fine had he played more games in the playoffs

Dirk Optimistic About Chance Of Landing Deron

Dirk Optimistic About Chance Of Landing Deron

The Mavericks, like their fans, will spend the next 48 hour “hoping and praying” on the free-agent front, Dirk Nowitzki said this morning.

Nowitzki was leading an array of sports celebrities through batting practice at Dr Pepper BallPark in Frisco this morning and the subject quickly came to Deron Williams and the Mavericks’ pursuit of the NBA’s No. 1 free agent this summer.

Nowitzki had good news.

“I think he’s still undecided,” Nowitzki said. “He honestly is. I thought he might make a decision quick and get it out of the way. But I really think he’s torn. He’s got two great owners, two great organizations (to decide from). And obviously, I think Jersey, with the move to Brooklyn is even more appealing (than before).

“So I think he’s got two clubs and it’s a tough decision. We’re going to keep recruiting and hopefully we’ll get some good news this week. It’ll be very special for the city.”

Nowitzki said he already has talked to Williams, as players are allowed to converse among themselves although team management members are not allowed to do start their recruiting of free agents until 11:01 p.m., Dallas time, Saturday night.

“Obviously, I know him,” Nowitzki said. “We’ve played in multiple All-Star games together. We can talk amongst players. But I don’t feel I need to pitch much. He knows the organization. He knows what we have here. He knows what the city’s like. He grew up here. I think he knows what he has here.

“I told him I got a little something in the tank, too, for two more years. We’ll see what happens.”

Asked if he thought Williams eventually will see the light and bring his talents to north Texas, Nowitzki said: “We’d love that, for sure.’’

^^ Dirk saying he's got a little left in the tank for two more years :man10:

That's exactly what DWill wants to hear Dirk :freak2:

Good Luck Dallas, Looks like Deron is staying in the East, which in my opinion is just fine. If we can't get him stay over there.

Deron hasn't flip-flopped at all. He's going to test the free agent market, Dallas is going to court him, and Deron will end up signing with Brooklyn. Dwight will be there soon afterwards and they'll be playing next to each other.

That's not happening. Brooklyn has nothing to offer Orlando. Brook Lopez is a restricted free agent and can't be traded for a couple of months. Even if he could Lopez + fillers for Dwight is a pretty weak offer.

doesn't matter he will find a way to get there. Most likely in 2013 free agency.
