    Deron Williams agrees to 3-year deal, with option for 4th, worth as much as $70 mil

    Source: SaltLakeTribune


    The Jazz and guard Deron Williams have agreed to a contract extension, according to Williams' agent, Bob McClaren.
    According to sources, the extension is for three years with a fourth-year option and will pay Williams the maximum allowed by the NBA's collective bargaining agreement. The earliest Williams would become a free agent would be the summer of 2012.
    The exact value of Williams' extension won't be determined under the NBA sets its salary cap next July. But Williams will earn approximately $50 million the first three years and as much as $70 million if he exercises the option.

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    Money well spent. Plus it is a win/win for player and team the deal is short enough not to bogg down the franchise since it only 3 with a 4 option. I would like to more of theese shorter contracts throughout the league with team/player options. i beleive it would best for the league hell I'll go as far as every pro sports league should adopt short deals. Makes for a far more interesting sports landscape.

    Lol @ D Will taking the 3 year deal. That is a great business/personal decision for him. He won't regret that decision 4 years down the line.

    no player "deserves" that much money, but its the kind of money you have to spend to keep a player of Dwills caliber on your team.
