Chris Broussard arrives hilariously late to the Deron Williams party

We now know Deron Williams will be staying with the Nets. We know this because Williams himself tweeted the news a little over an hour ago. Soon after, Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reported the contract figures: 5 years, $100 million. And yet, all this didn’t stop ESPN’s resourceful Chris Broussard from chiming in with some breaking news of his own.

At 7:15 ET, 12 minutes after Williams first informed the world of his decision, Broussard tweeted out some huge news from a “source”:

And then just to be sure:

Somebody get this man a Pulitzer!

Credit Broussard for doing his due diligence, I guess. But there’s no way he can come out of this without looking like a dork. Even if he was working the phones while all of this went down, it’s on him for not being aware. For one, he follows Williams on Twitter. Obviously there’s more to reporting than trusting Twitter, but he was still beaten to the punch by a pretty reputable reporter and, as of writing, still hasn’t given credit to Wojnarowski (like David Aldridge gave to Broussard for another story here) or even Williams himself, for that matter.
