A Sports Illustrated poll of 137 NBA players has Deron Williams at No. 10 among "players to build a team around." D-Will is listed fourth among point guards, behind Eastern Conference MVP Derrick Rose (No. 5), Clippers star Chris Paul (No. 6), eight-time All-Star Steve Nash (No. 8). Who's No. 1? LeBron James, natch. And No. 2? Dwight Howard, who wants to play with No. 10. Players were asked who they would choose first if starting a team from scratch.
