This is not offical, New Jersey Nets guard Deron Williams hasn't signed anywhere, and I am too big (fluffy?) to say told you so but ... the reports keep surfacing that DWill is not coming to the Mavericks this offseason.
The Lakers are the new twist to this scenario. According to this report from Sports Illustrated, DWill is more tempted at the idea of going to the Lakers than he is the Mavericks. But his preference is to remain with the Brooklyn Nets, and build from there with guys like Brook Lopez and Gerald Wallace.
I have thought from Day 1 WIll was never coming to the Mavericks, which leaves this cap-clearing previous season left to look at guys like ... Steve Nash.
Maybe Michael Finley can come back.
