this all depends if he signs or not, but if he doesn't:

Devin Harris
Derrick Favors
2 high 1sts

for

1 1/2 years of Deron Williams.

I don't think so. Next year's draft is weak, Favors could turn out to be good or the opposite. Harris is Harris. I can see this trade being a failure but there is still a lot left before we know if Deron will sign an extension or not.

Will the Knicks fans settle down. Deron might not even leave them.

PS: I apologize for telling all Knicks fans to settle down, just the ones who are upset that the Nets did better than them.

Deron has said that he will see how the team performs next year to decide if will stay or not. Unless the Nets can get another star, I say he leaves.

It's a risk they had to take and they got him for cheap, so for now.. it's a very good move and way better than the Knicks move.

Or we could've probably lost out on Melo because he could've signed the extension with Denver because of the CBA coming up.

But to answer the first question; no, I bet NJ are throwing their money into something with the new CBA where there might be a franchise tag in play. That will allow them to keep D-Will if it comes to fruition.

oh yeah so horrible. an overrated point guard who we were trading anyway, a guy who wasnt helping us right now anyway in favors and two draft picks for possibly the best point guard in the NBA. worst trade i have ever witnessed :rolleyes: this is ridiculous. the better question is are knicks fans the biggest crybabies of the decade? probably. prokhorov played the knicks like a fiddle by making them give up their whole team for carmelo just to get deron the next day.

NJ just got their player to build around. They have cap space to try and add players in FA and more trading plus draft. D-Howard to NJ?? Long shot but listen first. D-Will averages 20+ pts and 10+ ast. He can score and set up Howard. Then you have a 'Big 2' and maybe if they can get something outta the draft to complete the "BIG 3". Just an idea to build around. I know this thought will get bashed but I'm just sayin anything is possible after that Perkins trade by the C's. Thoughts???

No one looks at the big picture anymore. D will isn't a lock and can potential leave next year. Don't know why your compare this to the melo deal i like it for both team NY get their man and Nuggets aren't left holding their Dicks. to all the people that cry about stars not staying in small markets

sooooo couldnt keep Gallo if they signed Mello, Chandler was going to leave via FA's , that leaves Mozgov which really wasnt going to make or break this trade:) so whats your point???

we really cant say right now. if dwill chooses to leave then they are left with nothing to show for it. then its a bad trade for the nets. but if they make some moves to surround him with talent, and a he re ups, then its a good deal.

only time will tell.

Nets trade was much better. Harris proved to be just a guy. Nobody knows what Favors is, and he probably won't become an all star. Knicks gave up a kings ransom for Melo. Melo is great but man they payed the price..

Giraffes Rule
02-24-2011, 09:27 PM
Harris isn't going to take them anywhere, and this year's draft is weak. So they give up Favors and a first that might be worth something for a top point guard. Bottom line is the Nets had to do something. They've been trying to rebuild with young talent for years now, and they've been failing miserably.

you very well maybe right that dwill leaves and the nets are left with nothing to show, but if he doesn't and he brings dwight or some other star to brooklyn, would this be the greatest trade of all time??

only time will tell. the new cba will probably restrict player movement. so there's at least a decent chance dwill stays. either way, well worth a risk for the nets.

Legitimate
02-24-2011, 09:54 PM
I don't understand..Dwill is probably the best pg in the league and he contributes to the team far more than what melo does and the knicks gave up a arm and a leg for him. So does this make the melo trade the worst trade of the decade? i'm sure dwill will resign, they have a rich owner that will be more than willing to pay for another star.

xabial
02-24-2011, 09:57 PM
Deron is the best PG in the NBA.

I dont think he'll leave Newark only because he'll be the Brooklyn Nets First Star in their Shiny New Court, and an owner willing to spend.


As biased as this sounds, only threat i see him leaving for is for the NY Knicks to team up with Stat+Melo IF the cap allows it.

EaglePride615
02-24-2011, 09:59 PM

An average point guard, a completely unproven talent, and two firsts in a weak draft for arguably the best point in the NBA and a true superstar level talent given his all-around game (unlike Melo) as "THE WORST OF THE DECADE?". Hahahahaahha, I smell bitter.

It was an astonishing/fantastic deal for New Jersey. They do indeed need to re-sign D. Will to make it fully worth it, but perennial losing teams often need to take chances to get out of the depths of the slums, and that's exactly what they did.

Legitimate
02-24-2011, 10:05 PM
Shoulda put the thread title " is the new york knicks trade the worst of the decade" i'd be more than willing to bash the knicks :D. but for the people that are saying dwill won't resign with new jersey, chances are melo will demand a trade in ny to be honest it goes both ways, that defense is worser than it already was, the suns defense never got them far with dantoni but they also had 2 elite defenders on that squad and i don't really see anyone stepping up in NY defensively and for crying out loud RONNIE TURIAF ISN'T SCARING NOBODY, NOT EVEN ANDREA BARGNANI.

Worst trade ever? you ****ing with me? let me break it down to you knicks fans! The team you have now is your team for the next five years. You got no cap room for another star and you got no picks or talented young players becuz u traded them away in the "BEST TRADE EVER"...so have fun getting knocked out by the heat, bulls, and NETS in the next five 2 round playoff matches. As for the trade, Nets got the best PG in the league and only gave up Harris an adv. pg making 9 mil for the next 2 years, Favor, who is extremely raw( could be good tho) n 2 pick in week draft classes. As for this notion that dwill will leave n we will end up with nothing? come on u think a Russian billionaire gonna get played out by some nig for texas? worst case scenario we trade him at next years deadline... but the best case scenario is when u knick fans are watchin dwill n dwight winning championships in BK..Thread should be deleted!!!

Is Deron really going to say no to $18 million in 2012 when max contracts might come down to $12 million? He'd also be saying no to going into a brand new arena in Brooklyn. NJ could keep Deron until 2013.

As a Jazz fan, I love the trade because Deron was going to leave and he wasn't happy. The future is amazing for Utah. Hayward, CJ Miles, Favors, Millsap, Jefferson, Harris, and Evans are all 27 or younger. And don't forget a top ten pick coming this year....

Dear Knicks fan,

Ask coaches everywhere, and you get the same answer: There is no more important player on a basketball team than the point guard. He's the facilitator, the guy who must figure out whether to shoot or pass.

When you look at today's NBA players, there may not be a better decision-maker than Deron Williams.

This season, he's averaging 21 points and close to 10 assists. He's also shooting almost 46 percent from the field and just less than 35 percent from beyond the 3-point arc. How many guys can say all that?

None.

Although Carmelo Anthony is a phenomenal scorer, and probably the best rebounding small forward in the league, (wallace is) his impact will not be felt as much as Williams'.

Remember when the Nets were an awful, 26-win team in 2000-01? Probably not. But the reason they were able to make one of the greatest turnarounds in league history was they acquired a franchise-changing point guard by the name of Jason Kidd.

With Kidd running the show, the team went 52-30 in 2001-02, advancing all the way to the NBA Finals.

The Nets are hoping Williams can have a Kidd-like impact in the Garden State. And let's be honest, Williams is probably a better player than Kidd. Just think of the possibilities.

In the end, when it comes down to it, Williams is the better player than Anthony. Point guards are more important than small forwards. And if you were starting a franchise, there's no question as to which player you would take.

It's not even close.


And yes stop hating. The Nets got a better trade than the Knicks ... we trade bronze for Gold and most likely Dwill will stay in the BK.

PS: I apologize for telling all Knicks fans to settle down, just the ones who are upset that the Nets did better than them.

really. this is the second thread i've seen, both started by knicks fans, that says how this is the worst trade ever. jesus, you guys look pathetic. settle down for fk's sake. you're giving your team a bad name, must be a new york thing. several jets fans are the same way. the fans really make you dislike the teams.

yeah, both trades weren't the best in my opinion (from the Knicks and Nets standpoint). A lot was lost for one superstar. The Knicks got Billups too though, so that's a nice additive to the deal. We will see how they do, I'm excited for it.

Also, the team the Nets had just wasn't proving to work out. This is two straight seasons they've been at the bottom of the East. Maybe Williams can help turn that around. Regarding their record, they really had nothing to lose in this trade; keep losing with the same team, or try and get a higher player in there to try and win a bit more.

ALSO....who the **** do you assume this would be one of the worst trades in history.. im a ****in net fan and even if we lost d will in a year and a half it STILL wouldent be the worst trade ever.
hm ppl on this site are such haters and so dam funny...lol

I'm not sure why people say this is a steal of a trade for the Nets. This is a Utah Jazz system that makes even a subpar point guard look like he should be starting for most teams. Remember Carlos Arroyo? Deron is a great PG but he has some weaknesses that are hidden in the Jazz system. I'll see how he does with his remaining time with the Nets, as well as how the new Jazz players turn out and what they do with their picks before I claim this is a steal for the Nets.

I agree, Knicks trade was worse since they could have got Melo at the end of the year.

Franchise tag? Nobody knows what is in store for new cba. It is not worth the risk.

If and WHEN d-will does not return they will have set their team back badly....

Favors and 2 high first round picks are a decent start to rebuilding. Somebody said "cheap" that's not cheap for a rent-a-star on a team with no championship hopes next year

No where near the worst trade, at all.

Williams has said he will see how the team goes in the next year or so before deciding whether he will stay or go. If the Nets can manage to lure say Howard to their club, then Williams will stay and they will have a good side. (Williams and Howard have been talking about playing with each other)

Steal if he signs. Great because it gave the fans something to enjoy and believe in.

I don't think any star is going to want to join him. I don't think players like the Russian owner and Jay-Z. The Russian and Jay-Z are not ideal basketball minds.

Can't really judge this trade for another 1 1/2 years. NJ got the best PG in the NBA, if he resigns it was a great deal.

But he didn't exactly sound thrilled about resigning in NJ and reports were he was very unhappy when he heard about the trade. If he leaves then NJ gave up Harris, Favors and 2 top lottery picks for a rental player.

It was a huge risk, but I think Prokav was really desperate for a superstar to open the new arena with, especially after losing out on Melo.

I dont think its a bad trade, they got him cheap, he's a stud and they are giving him the royal treatment... I think they will wine and dine him and get him some players. I work across the street from the Brooklyn Stadium their building.... They will sell him that deal. And there is ample time to bring him on board.


I dont understand all this NYK hate..... I think the Carmelo deal was a tough one but a good one. Are they a better team for the trade?? YES!! how can it be a bad trade if it makes the team better??

On the other hand. The Perkins trade that Boston did was worse, not to mention the trade Cleveland made for B. Davis. Those are far worse then the ones done by Nets and Knicks.

How is this possibly a the "worst trade ever?" Devin Harris had to go. The bridges were burned with him and there's no way he could have wanted to be stay in NJ. Sure you gave up 2 1st round picks but isn't one this year, and aren't people regarding this as one of the worst drafts in recent history. Favors has potential...Williams is an all-star now.

They probably could have swung a trade without the 2 1st rounders, but I don't think it's bad. Now when you try to sell people on the team or attract a free agent you sell not only Brooklyn which has worldwide recognition and is within NYC, you sell not only, a brand new arena, you sell not only a team with one of the richest owners in the world, you now well a team with an all-star, and an all-star point guard at that.

There's still plenty to do, but this definitely helps the team in the short and long term.

Well the Nets are improving..More than likely, they will have over 25 wins this year, which is double from last year. So at least they're on the right track. Williams didn't give any type of certainty because i'm sure he's interested to see what roster changes will occur during his tenure there...I honestly say its 50/50 and pretty much dependent on next years success.

this all depends if he signs or not, but if he doesn't:

Devin Harris
Derrick Favors
2 high 1sts

for

1 1/2 years of Deron Williams.

No, I still think the worst trade was Vince Carter to the Nets for a couple of mid 1st round picks.
