Wednesday marked the first day NBA free agents could officially sign contracts, and Deron Williams made his new deal with the Nets official. The All-Star point guard signed his contract electronically using an iPad (perhaps he was using Docusign?).
Williams is in Las Vegas practicing for the Olympics with Team USA, so the electronic signature made sense. Williams’ contract is 5 years for $98.75 million. If the Nets are able to finally land Dwight Howard, they could contend with the Heat for the Eastern Conference title. If they don’t they’ll probably be a 3 or 4 seed.
