Deron Williams chooses Brooklyn Nets

The Mavericks reportedly were worried that Deron Williams was leaning toward re-signing with the Nets, and they apparently had a good reason.

Williams tweeted on Tuesday afternoon that he has chosen the Nets, calling it a “very tough decision.” He linked to an image of the new Brooklyn Nets logo in his tweet:

Williams is likely to sign for five years and $100 million and will remain the franchise player for the Nets. Brooklyn has also agreed to sign Gerald Wallace to a 4-year $40 million deal, and they’ve agreed to acquire Joe Johnson in a trade. The next step is to work out a deal with Orlando for Dwight Howard. Without him, they’re just a good team in the East, but not a real title contender. With Howard, they can compete with the Heat.

We should also recognize the New York Daily News’ Stefan Bondy for saying that Williams was leaning toward re-signing with the Nets on May 1. I guess this is the reason why Williams was so critical of the report saying he wasn’t going to stay with the Nets.
