Deron Williams Lands in Russia

NEWARK, NJ - APRIL 23: Deron Williams of the New Jersey Nets stands on the court during a timeout against the Philadelphia 76ers at Prudential Center on April 23, 2012 in Newark, New Jersey. Tonight's game is the last home game the Nets will play in New Jersey since the franchise will being moving to play at the Barclays Center in the New York City Borough of Brooklyn for the 2012-13 NBA season. starting in theNOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by downloading and or using this photograph, User is consenting to the terms and conditions of the Getty Images License Agreement.

When we asked last week if Deron Williams and family were ultimately headed for Moscow, we were told by a team insider, "stay tuned."

Well, shortly after 6:30 a.m, Amy Williams tweeted, "Greetings from Russia!!!" (That's three exclamation points, we noted). An hour later, her husband tweeted a photo of a basketball-themed confection that greeted them on arrival at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Moscow. Both soon tweeted photos of their hotel room's view of the Kremlin. Amy's is better.

No word on whether they arrived from Istanbul with Mikhail Prokhorov, on his plane or what the family's plans are, but better Moscow than Dallas. The Nets are declining comment on the visit.

Last week, Masha Kirilenko, Andrei Kirilenko's wife, said the two couples would be going to Russia together. AK-47 may have a difficult time playing host. CSKA Moscow suffered a devastating loss in the Euroleague title Sunday night in Istanbul. CSKA went from 19 up with 12 minutes left to a one-point loss in the last second, with D-Will and Prokhorov on hand.
