The Williams, Deron and Amy, were out sightseeing in Moscow this morning, happily snapping pictures of Kazan Cathedral in Red Square and themselves. They're supposedly spending time with the Kirilenkos, Andrei and Masha. No word though on any face time with Mikhail Prokhorov ... beyond a casual conversation they had in Istanbul.
As noted Tuesday, this Russian interlude has gotten notice in Dallas, where in the words of one writer, "The Mavs want Deron Williams in the worst possible way." But beyond Williams' Russian vacation, Mavericks' writers and fans have started taking note of something else, the $28 million (and extra year of financial security) D-Will would leave on the table if he moves from Brooklyn to Dallas.
"Unfortunately, if Williams is all about the money he won't be leaving Brooklyn," writes Dwain Price in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "Williams has a tough choice to make this summer. Stay with a team that was 22-44 this season, or come home and try to help his hometown team regain the NBA title they won last year."
