Deron Williams became the first NBA superstar to suggest it's past time for decertification, tweeting this morning that he was in favor of the move last summer. The tweet comes two days after his diary entry where he volunteered that he'll be renting, not buying, in New Jersey because "I'm not yet sure what I'm going to do."
Nets officials aren't talking, actually they can't publicly, but Fred Kerber suggests that his diary item, unsolicited as it was, has to be a concern. "Williams has said virtually everything the Nets want to hear about staying. Until now. In his latest blog from Turkey where he has been playing during the lockout, Williams did not sound like a guy who is completely committed to the New Jersey/Brooklyn Nets."
