Pick or No-Pick, It's About D-Will

Billy King says he is letting his staff take responsibility for the Draft Thursday night. He's focusing on what comes next, the start of NBA free agency and the chance to sign both Deron Williams and Gerald Wallace and lay the groundwork for Brook Lopez and whoever else they've targeted, from Brooklyn to Bosnia.

But make no mistake. King has his priorities straight. It's all about Williams. "It is big," King said Wednesday at the PNY center. "I won’t downplay it."

Or as Brett Yormark told Howard Beck, "Star power sells in this city, There’s no question about it," before adding, "But we’re in it for the long haul, and we’ve got to build pragmatically."

Meanwhile, in Dallas, Delonte West lived up to his reputation for whackiness by tweeting a string of recruiting messages to Williams, talking about how with him and Dirk Nowtizki the Mavs could win the West. Problem is West is a free agent and unlikely to be back in Dallas next season if they were able to sign Williams.
