The Nets' peripatetic point guard is in Los Angeles this week, after hitting Istanbul, Moscow, New York and Dallas. As he said in those locations and others, he's made no decision about the city of his final destination. But while he spoke to the L.A. Times about ways the Lakers could acquire him, he also spoke about how big Brooklyn will be.

"The move to Brooklyn is definitely going to be huge," he said. "That's first and foremost. I'm very confident in management there. I like Coach Avery Johnson and I like playing for him. Like I said, the move to Brooklyn could be huge. It'll be a fun thing to be a part of."

He once again denied Adrian Wojnarowski's story last week that unless the Nets get Dwight Howard, he's gone. "I didn't say that. It's not how I feel," Williams said. "I don't think I'm going to base my decision, my family's decision on somebody else coming to a team or not. I have to make a decision that's best for me and my family. That's what I'm going to do."

As for going to the Lakers or Mavericks, Williams was non-committal as ever. He noted that L.A. doesn't have the cap room to acquire him without a trade. Would Williams be open to joining any team via sign-and-trade? "I don't know," Williams said with a smile.
