Asked if getting Dwight Howard is key to the Nets' getting D-Will to sign, Bucher replied,
"Getting Dwight Howard would do a lot, but upgrading the roster in general will be the biggest factor. From what I hear, Deron’s family already has been out house-hunting and he regularly texts with Billy King about players that would be good to add to their team. That, at least, sounds like a guy looking to stay."
Williams has said there is a "strong possibility" he will stay but also noted that he wants to see what the Nets do to improve the team.
