The future of Brooklyn will be headlined by the star point guard, Deron Williams, as he chose to resign with the Nets. Williams’ deal is reported to be worth $98 million over five years. The Nets recently acquired Joe Johnson via trade, and are the main attraction to the big center, Dwight Howard.
Williams nearly signed with the Dallas Mavericks for four years, but chose to stay with his former team. The Nets are currently dealing with a thin roster, but are hoping to resign center, Brook Lopez. The franchise has been busy all summer, having a quiet draft, but recently negotiated a four-year deal to keep Gerald Wallace. Last season Williams averaged 21 points and 8.7 assists for the Nets. Brooklyn has now secured two big talents in both Williams and Johnson, but are still more than hungry to add a crucial third weapon for the team to excel in the east.
