Mavericks Simmons: Deron Williams going to Dallas this summer

Quote:
Nobody feels sorry for [Deron Williams] because he ruined the last year of Jerry Sloan's career, and for that he remains in NBA Purgatory - at least until he signs with Dallas this summer. We're all supposed to pretend this might not happen even though it's a bigger summer lock than Michael Phelps winning a gold medal. I haven't talked to one person "In the Know" who isn't 100 percent convinced that Dallas is getting him. But let's all keep pretending this isn't true.

That's why you don't trade for a player unless agree to an extension before hand. Especially when you're giving up that much... I don't know who didn't see this coming.

I don't know why he would go there....Dirk, Terry, Marion, they're all getting on wayy past their prime. 1 championship? Maybe. After that, same situation as Jersey.

Williams lives in San Diego in the off-season, he's coming to LA after Dwight goes there

Is it me or does anyone else have a feeling that Deron Williams isn't all that great of a PG.

Or could it just be his supporting cast?

What other players does he have? Arguably a worse supporting cast in Bosh's worst years here.

Well Texas is the best state. Cuban wants to win unlike other owners. He'll put a supporting cast around him even when Dirk retires

a PG needs good players more than any other position

Well if there are 0 great PG in the NBA, then yes he is not that great of a PG.

You could argue he is the best PG talent in the NBA with Paul & Rose. He is at least top 3 and some people will argue he is the most talented out of the 3.

Great news if he goes to Dallas. NJ gave up a lot to get him and then lose him. No need for another team in the Atlantic to be good and Raptors have to deal with him. So best he goes elsewhere.

Dwight aint going to LA, nor does it make sense for him to even go there

Deron to Dallas should happen.

It's a great fit, and gives the Mavs another superstar to build around for the next while.

I see Dirk and Terry sticking around for a few years cause they're both still very good.

(edit - Dirk is still great. He's going to get on fire down the stretch and put all the "he's done" talk in the garbage"

The big key will be D12. If Dallas can make a move for him, watch out.

Does Deron Williams leave NJ this summer?
Chad Ford (1:22 PM)

Probably. The only scenario where he doesn't is if the Nets swing a deal for Dwight Howard at the trade deadline. At that point, I think Williams hangs around. If that doesn't happen, I think Williams will join Dwight Howard (assuming he's not traded to the Lakers in March) in Dallas next summer. Lots of signals pointing to this being the preferred outcome for both players.
