Deron Williams chooses to stay in BK
Free Agent All-Pro PG Deron Williams has decided to stay in Brooklyn.
Deron met with the Dallas Mavericks earlier today, but the discussions did not last too long and neither Mark Cuban nor Dirk Nowitzki were present. Thanks to the CBA, Dallas couldn't offer D-Will as much money as the Nets could, which had to have been a significant factor in the decision. Williams' new deal is worth approximately $100 million and will keep him with the Nets for another five years.
Deron has emphasized his desire to make a decision by the 4th of July in order to start practicing with his teammates for the Olympics, so expect an announcement within the next few days.
