Broussard: No Decision by D-Will With Nets, Mavericks Still in Lead

Chris Broussard reports that Deron Williams has not yet decided where he'll play next. He suggests the only real suitors remain the Nets and Mavericks, with the Nets having some less than obvious advantages. Broussard claims "Money is not going to be the deciding factor."

Broussard says Williams genuinely likes Billy King and Avery Johnson and believes that with "himself, Brook Lopez, Marshon Brooks and Gerald Wallace (assuming they sign him as a free agent), the Nets have the makings of a playoff team ... Williams also believes that free agents will be willing to join the Nets -- they are more than $20 million beneath the salary cap -- once they see the club's sparkling new arena and all the extra marketing opportunities that could come with playing in Brooklyn."

The Mavs advantage, says Broussard, is that it's home, but offers no information on how important that is, as well as Mark Cuban's record of winning and Dirk Nowitzki. "Williams realizes that if you slide him into the Mavericks' lineup that the Oklahoma City Thunder eliminated in the first round of this year's playoffs, you have a title contender." Broussard also suggests that if a third team can sneak into contention, it would be the Suns.
