Broussard story so take it for what it is, but a pretty decent piece overall. Deron wants to be with the Nets, but if Dwight doesn't come he wants to go to the Knicks, Lakers or Mavs.

Deron Williams' first choice is to stay with the Nets and to build something special in Brooklyn, but if it doesn't work out with his current team, his short list of desirable destinations includes the Mavericks, the Knicks and the Lakers, according to sources close to the situation.

While the league's post-lockout trade buzz has been centered on Chris Paul and Dwight Howard, little attention has been paid to Williams, who like Howard can opt out of his contract and become a free agent after this season.
Williams has publicly stated his desire to re-sign with the Nets, and New Jersey, which views him as a building block for next season's move to Brooklyn, has refused to entertain potential trades involving Williams. Yet both sides know their future together is tied to Dwight Howard.

If the Nets are able to obtain Howard, either through a trade before the March 15 deadline or in free agency this summer, Williams will re-sign. If Howard goes elsewhere, Williams is likely to leave New Jersey, according to the sources.

So if Orlando trades Howard before the deadline to a team he plans to re-sign with, such as the Los Angeles Lakers, the Nets will begin exploring trades for Williams, a source said. The Nets, however, will not consider trading Williams until obtaining Howard is no longer a possibility because the club believes it has a great chance of teaming the two together in Brooklyn, if not this season.

If Howard does go elsewhere, the Nets will be faced with the same dilemma New Orleans faced in moving Chris Paul -- finding a trade partner that Williams will sign with long term because few, if any, teams will be willing to part with major assets for a two-month rental. So Williams will have a large say in where he winds up.

Williams has grown to enjoy living in New York and he is excited about the off-the-court business opportunities the city provides, so if Howard doesn't join him with the Nets, he would love to remain in New York and play for the Knicks, sources said. While no trade talks have taken place between the clubs, the Knicks could theoretically offer either Carmelo Anthony or Amare Stoudemire, thus giving the Nets a superstar to lead them to Brooklyn.

A native of Dallas, Williams is also fond of the idea of playing for the Mavericks. Dallas lacks the pieces to pull off a trade, but if Williams becomes a free agent and the Nets don't get Howard, the Mavericks, who will have enough cap room to offer him a maximum contract, are his likeliest landing spot, a source said.

Then there are the Lakers. Williams likes Los Angeles and lives in nearby San Diego during the offseason. Before the season began, the three teams on his wish list were New Jersey, Dallas and the Los Angeles Clippers, according to sources. But with the Clippers having traded for Paul, playing there is no longer a possibility.

Getting to the Lakers would be difficult for Williams because they will not have cap room in the summer and they lack the promising young prospects the Nets would look for in return.

If the Nets' nightmare scenario comes to pass and they don't get Howard, sources said they will not trade Williams for marginal players merely to avoid losing him for nothing in free agency. If Williams walks, the Nets will be left with enough cap room to sign two high-salaried players, which they view as a better option than eating up their cap space with average talent.

the knicks? They'd have to lose Amare or overpaid chandler.

the mavs? Why are the mavs all of a suddent a favored destination? They won 1 championship and probably wont win another for another decade. Dirk is on his last legs. I guess Cuban just has that cool effect on some players.

Lakers? Its exactly what they need, they havent had a pointguard in over a decade. And its a big city.

No chance he makes it to the Knicks or Lakers, because the Nets won't trade him (except maybe for Melo?).

He can sign in the offseason with Dallas.

ZERO chance that happens unless one of them gets dealt there before the trade deadline (and then it's 100% happening). The only scenario that happens is if they both became free agents and took less money to play for Dirk and zero other players.

Deron wants to be in Brooklyn, Dwight wants to be in Brooklyn... it's pretty obvious how this will pan out.

The have 4 total wins this season WITH Deron. They wont even make the playoffs. Why would dwight or deron want to play with a team like that this October? They want to win now.

Ill bet you he is gone by the deadline. Poor Nets fans dont have much to look forward to right now. I dont think the Magic will trade dwight to Jersey. They are not playing well and frankly, even with Dwight, they wouldnt have a prayer at a championship. I am not even sure if they would make the playoffs at this point if they wait til the deadline to acquire him. They might be too far back by then.

While I do believe Dwight will end up with the Nets, The Mavs have a great chance of acquiring them through FA I mean the heat did it with their big 3, anything can happen :shrug:

Oh God not Broussard. This is got to be the biggest bunch of BS I've ever laid my eyes on. Enough is enough with the "sources". Step 1: Write 500 article a year about stuff you just make up. Step 2: Hope the one of them come true. Step 3: Tell everyone you were right when one does.

Basketball writers are just down right embarrassing. 1 good story for every 100 made up ones. I'm sure D-Will just took time out of his busy schedule to tell some sources that story.

I just love when people take obvious made up **** and run with it.

1. Dwight isnt going the the Nets it cant happen anymore since they resigned Humphries and traded for Okur.
2. The Knicks have no one to offer the Nets unless its Amare which wont happen
3. The Mavs literally have no one to offer the Nets unless its Dirk involved which wont ever happen, their best chance is signing him as a FA.
4. The Lakers has the best chance of acquiring D-Will, they can offer Gasol plus some of our young guys like Ebanks or Morris and draft picks
5. D-Will wont sign an extension with the Nets so he will get traded before the deadline which means the best destination to land D-Will will be LA

Dallas is really the only option here, since the Nets are not going to trade him. But it won't be with Dwight because if Dwight has the ability to sign as a free agent somewhere, why wouldn't he just do it with Deron in Brooklyn where they BOTH want to be?

That would mean the Nets would have Lopez + MarShon Brooks + 2012 lottery pick + Dwight + Deron, etc.

Lol Exactly. Nobody in Brooklyn even cares, The arena gets no publicity aside from the protests against it 3 years ago.

Lakers, Mavs makes sense money wise. If he thinks he can win faster, he would choose the Knicks and take less to do so. Up to him.

I highly doubt he'll come here. Besides, we're more interested in Nash instead of wasting time with this rumor nonsense.

Kind of like the younger generation in America as a whole. All about them. CEO 4 years out of college, or I leave!

Whatever. I hated Deron the second Sloan quit, so this won't do anything to my opinion of him as a person. Plus he went to Illinois, and my family simply refers to them as, "cheaters".

A Melo for Dwill trade would make sense for both teams if Knicks continue to struggle.

Dwill gets 2 big men to throw lobs to, won't have to carry the load offensively.

NJ gets Melo after all, Melo is better suited to carry a team, Deron is struggling being asked to be the main scorer.

You can't make this stuff up, comedy gold. :clap: Well done sir

Why would he want to go to play with two good teams in LA or DAL when he can play for the sub .500 Knicks.

If LA wants D-Will and he wants them that's fine but it's gonna cost you Bynum. If not you can go scratch.

Too early to say. At the moment, it was an incredibly great trade because right now Dwight Howard wants to play for the Nets. He has only 3 teams he's down with and the Lakers are a distant third.

If Deron & Dwight pair up like it looks like they've been plotting to do, then it was an amazing trade. If Deron leaves, then yeah.

But isn't a trade that gets Dwight to demand to come to your team always a good trade?

Interesting. Brook Lopez is sidelined with injuries, and they're facing a number of injuries. Defenses are focusing on Deron, and he has trouble because he isn't a pure scorer. What's your point?

And BTW, a lot of people actually underrate Nets having Jay-Z as a minority owner. (I know someone will say he didn't bring LeBron, but LeBron already had his mind set on Miami)

when are people going to realize their "wish list" is just a list. their front office doesnt care who they trade with, its a matter of the pieces they get in return.

and there is no such thing as a number one destination or a distant 3rd destination, if a team is on a "list" its where they want to go.

and im guarantee both d will, and howard will be in new uniforms come the trade deadline. because with lopez injury and the lack of vets on that net team they have no pieces the magic would want. which means d will wont sign a contract extension, which means they would be forced to trade him as well.

Dwight and Deron are pairing up why is that so hard to understand. This is 2010 all over again the pact is made. Two teams can make that happen so the only thing now depends on where they team up.

Broussard story so take it for what it is, but a pretty decent piece overall. Deron wants to be with the Nets, but if Dwight doesn't come he wants to go to the Knicks, Lakers or Mavs.

Not this again.... the Dwight drama still hasn't ended. Anytime it features those bold teams, ESPN and PSD will quote anything and anyone to build hope.

What are you talking about? The Knicks... when the hell was the last time they won?

It took Dallas so many damn years and tons and tons of millions of dollars and crazy free agent purchases and trades to get ONE title.

The Spurs have won more than the Knicks and Mavs combined in the last 30 years.

The Lakers have always been a a powerhouse and will continue to be. part of that is location, part of that is their history and a huge part of that is their management.

The Last decade we had the Pistons, spurs, lakers, celtics, and heat (without lebron and bosh obviously)

The Lakers and Celtics would be considered a big market. I guess you cold argue Miami is a big market... but Detroit and San Antonio?

More wrong, he absolutely can be traded by himself for other players. He can't be included in a multiplayer deal (him + other Nets).

And you are continuing to fail fail fail. NONE of the players are signing extensions. Extensions are EXTENDING your CURRENT contract. NONE of them are doing that. They are opting OUT of their current contract and signing a new one.

If they sign a new one with the team they were on at the end of the season, they are eligible for 5 guaranteed years. If they go to a different team it's 4 guaranteed years and less % raises per year.

Try to follow along.

I'm not even sure NBA2K12 would be that stupid. Amare is untradeable. Not sure how many times Knicks fans need to hear that before it clicks.

Knicks fans are stuck with him until his contract is done.

I don't know anything about quantum physics so I don't speak on the subject. Since you don't know about basketball maybe you shouldn't speak on it. If you don't know ask, it's the only way you'll learn.

More wrong, he absolutely can be traded by himself for other players. He can't be included in a multiplayer deal (him + other Nets).

And you are continuing to fail fail fail. NONE of the players are signing extensions. Extensions are EXTENDING your CURRENT contract. NONE of them are doing that. They are opting OUT of their current contract and signing a new one.

If they sign a new one with the team they were on at the end of the season, they are eligible for 5 guaranteed years. If they go to a different team it's 4 guaranteed years and less % raises per year.

Try to follow along.

LOL Okur for Dwight makes sense you Nets fans try so hard but are just jealous cuz no one wants to go play for them :D

Melo for D-Will, no way. That trade makes the Knicks like 5-10 games worse. Amare for D-Will? Maybe, but Melo for D-Will, GTFO.

Melo for Williams straight up seems fair.

No way in hell NJ takes on Amar'e and his risk factor/contract for him Alone. Again New York would also have to deal out prospects and draft picks in that case (Shumpert/Fields/First rounders).

Okur for Turkoglu works as a separate but related deal.

As to your jealousy comment - that is an incredibly weak attempt to bait and divert from the fact that you are wrong.

People really blow the whole "Brooklyn Nets" thing out of proportion. As if they're destined to be the next magical dynasty in the making, just because they move to the oh so cool city of Brooklyn yo! And the whole jay z thing... jesus. Just stop it already.

The have 4 total wins this season WITH Deron. They wont even make the playoffs. Why would dwight or deron want to play with a team like that this October? They want to win now.



HAHAHA...someone sounds a lil mad...lol
calm down buddy...ppl like the idea of the move to BK cuz it will be a freakin amazin arena..well i guess more like a sports complex..but yea.

as for u saying why would they want to play there...well like i said being the face of the new arena would be nice.... brooks is NICE.... lopez is nice...a top 5 pick is nice....but yea.. even is we trade lopez brooks and picks for d12 then we can start the build with dwill and d12. then more stars will come.

LBJ always was in win now mode and he went to the finals with both his teams. he dident win ****...so yea..dwill and d12 wont win the first season they play together.

01-20-2012, 07:17 PM
You're wrong buddy, Okur cant be traded again in the same season unless he is waived AND if no one will sign an extension then none of them will get traded which wont happen these teams wont let them walk and get nothing in return so they will sign extensions if traded to the right team

you're clueless :facepalm:

the knicks? They'd have to lose Amare or overpaid chandler.

the mavs? Why are the mavs all of a suddent a favored destination? They won 1 championship and probably wont win another for another decade. Dirk is on his last legs. I guess Cuban just has that cool effect on some players.

Lakers? Its exactly what they need, they havent had a pointguard in over a decade. And its a big city.

Maybe because cuban spends the money to constantly suround his star players with a solid suporting cast ? and i beleive deron is from dallas if im not mistaken

Barely enough for one Max? Yeah right.

Look at all the expiring contracts, Odom buy out clause in his contract, and amnesty Haywood and tell me how much we have please :)

D Will
Terry (resigned)
Marion
Dirk
Howard


Its unlikely both come, but its 90% more chance than any other team financially

Plus Mavs both on both their top 3 list

1. Dwight isnt going the the Nets it cant happen anymore since they resigned Humphries and traded for Okur.
2. The Knicks have no one to offer the Nets unless its Amare which wont happen
3. The Mavs literally have no one to offer the Nets unless its Dirk involved which wont ever happen, their best chance is signing him as a FA.
4. The Lakers has the best chance of acquiring D-Will, they can offer Gasol plus some of our young guys like Ebanks or Morris and draft picks
5. D-Will wont sign an extension with the Nets so he will get traded before the deadline which means the best destination to land D-Will will be LA

both humphries and okur are expirings. they signed him to a 1 year deal.

Your roster is very unlikely, but according to tracy mcgrady that will happen..dwight wont hit free agency and that's the only way he will be on the mavs next year, he will be traded..he stated over and over that he will not sign with orlando and doesn't want to be there anymore. and d-will will likely put the team that gets dwight on top of his list, mostly because him and dwight are extremely good friends..

D-Will
K Bryant
M Barnes/hedo

D Howard

Um a team with Howard and D-Will along with Brooks is a good team. Right now they are a bad in part bcuz they dont have a center. The Nets have an owner thats willing to spend his money and the whole league knows that

No chance he makes it to the Knicks or Lakers, because the Nets won't trade him (except maybe for Melo?).

He can sign in the offseason with Dallas.

better to trade him than to lose him in free agency

People are acting like D Will and Howard will ask for the Max

The only way they can play together is if they both ask for 16 mil a year and go to Dallas with Dirk

Y'all really don't know how much the Mavs have this off season

Ill keep my mouth shut and watch it happen

01-21-2012, 12:42 PM
Expiring contracts, Odom buy out clause in his contract, and amnesty Haywood

If they both ask for 16 mil a year like the Heat players, we can signing them outright

The Mavericks are the only team that can have them together financially

Knicks and Lakers wont be able to have them BOTH

Cuban is not dumb, he set up for this off season

01-21-2012, 12:47 PM
Marion nd Dirk are the only players left on the roster next year! (Amnesty Haywood and buy out clause in Odom contract)

And y'all are saying Mavs can't get both???? :laugh:

Terry and others will definitely take a pay cut to play with D Will, Dirk, and Howard


Come on now. Mavs are the only team that can sign them both

Howard and D Will will not ask for the Max if they want to play with eachother

And Dallas is on both of their top 3 list and the only team with the money

Knicks and Lakers don't have money. Its the Nets or Mavericks

That was basically how Deron Williams replied Saturday morning when asked about Chris Broussard's report that he has list of teams he'd prefer if the Nets fail to get Dwight Howard and he needs to get out of Jersey.

First, Williams claimed he doesn't read ESPN although the first person he followed on Twitter is named Chris Broussard. The ESPN writer is also one of only two reporters he follows, the other being Darren Rovell of CNBC. And his very first tweet, as noted by Nets are Scorching, quoted who?

After that, there was this exchange:

Q: You have a list…
A: Did you hear it from me? We don’t need to talk about it then. Another one of these sources. Sources. I don’t know who sources are.

Q: The Knicks were on the list. You said before the season it was unlikely you’d go there, has anything changed?
A: We play Oklahoma City tonight, right? We’ve got Russell Westbrook tonight, Kevin Durant and Co.?

Later, Williams said he was unaware of any list and Avery Johnson joked he had hoped his son's high school team would be on the list. So take from it what you will.

Deron basically avoided the question this morning. However as it looks now, the Magic might hang on to Howard and let him walk. That imo is a dream scenario for the Nets NOT Dallas.

Yes Dallas would have the triple Ds...

but Brooklyn would have so much more flexibility and room to build a deep team and neither Deron or Dwight would have to accept pay cuts..

So between good picks in a deep draft and lots of cap room, not to mention that Deron has said his preferred option is to stay with the Nets and lead them to Brooklyn and Dwight's preferred destination is the Nets, so why wouldnt they choose the Nets in FA when the hypothetical Nets team would be even better then than now?

Im starting to waver on my belief that DAL will get them if they hit FA. Brooklyn just offers so much more.

BTW Wade was from CHI and he is still in MIA
