THE NETS DO NOT WANT TO BE WITHOUT THEIR STAR DERON WILLIAMS
Fri, 02 Mar 2012 01:36 PM EST

Deron Williams, the All-Star point guard doesn’t want to address the topic of doubtless playing in his hometown on an enduring basis during this trip to Dallas, but his coach acknowledged that the Mavericks are a major risk to sign the free agent-to-be.

New Jersey Nets coach Avery Johnson has a large amount of acceptance for his former boss, Mavs owner Mark Cuban. The multimillionaire has teamed with Dallas president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson to give the Mavs the money flexibility this summer to try to sign Williams and/or Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard.

Williams, whose team played the Mavericks Tuesday night, pretended to not bear in mind that the Mavericks would have sufficient salary-cap space to be major players in free agency this offseason. He made it obvious that he had zero intention of debating the likelihood of joining Dirk Nowitzki in Dallas next season. Basketball betting lines

“I’m just going to play out this season and take a look at my options after this season,” Williams said, repeating one or two variances of that declaration in a 5-minute session with the media.

However Williams, a native of Dallas suburb The Colony who attended 1 or 2 Mavs playoff games during last year’s championship run, recognized that he take pleasure in playing at American Airlines Center.

Williams, who has averaged 22.3 points on 50.3 shooting in 10 career games at American Airlines Center, stated that he is keen on the shooting background in the arena. He also loves the atmosphere.

“It’s good when an arena has a lot of energy,” Williams related. “Ours hasn’t got too much energy.”

The Nets hope that transforms when they move into Barclays Center in Brooklyn next season. They also desire that Williams will be the face of the organization when that happens.

“For us, we are not making any expectations until we get Deron signed on the dotted line,” asserted Johnson, who played 55 games for the Mavericks late in his career and coached Dallas from 2005 to 2008. “The main thing is we continue to do what we are doing.

“Deron’s been a serious part of what we are doing behind the scenes. He’s been a significant part of what we are doing with the new Barclays Center, so we are saying he is doing all of that with the desire that he’s going to stay with us in the near future.”

Nets managing director Billy King also isn’t fearful that Williams could leave.

“It’s not a fear, it’s a reality,” King said.” “The Mavericks will have cap space along with other teams and he’s from Dallas. I do not think it is any secret, but I am not alarmed of them, no.”

Williams has stated that he is open to staying with the Nets after they move to Brooklyn next season as long as they put the right pieces around him and he feels like he has an appropriate opportunity to win a championship there.

“I’m not concerned,” King asserted. “I’m anticipating having Deron in a Brooklyn Nets uniform next year.”

At the same time, King does have a probability action in place if Williams does choose to depart.

King would not exhibit if Williams has given him guarantees that he is going to remain, but he did note that they’ve a good relationship and had numerous chats about the check-list and the direction of the organization going forward.
