Utah point guard Deron Williams appears to be a lock to make the United States national team in 2012 when the Olympics shift to London, according to Daily Illini.

Williams and Jerry Colangelo, managing director of USA Basketball, were honored at halftime of the Illinois alumni game Saturday night.

"Deron was one of my top picks at point guard because I believed in him," Colangelo said. "He did the University proud, the country proud.

And he wants to continue representing this country going forward, so I'm sure you'll be seeing him in 2012 in London."

more of a chris paul fan, but i dont dislike anything about williams game. if he plays for usa in 2012 its only going to help the team.

I like Chris Paul more as well, but D-Will is still one of the top point guards in the NBA, and I won't be complaining if he is on the US squad in 2012.

I'd like to see the following big's in the next one:

Dwight Howard
Chris Bosh
Amare Stoudemire
Greg Oden

Both CP3 and Deron Williams are great PG's. I think CP3 is better by a little but Deron is amazing too.
