NBA reporter, Rick Reeves has reported via twitter than the Nets are open to trading Williams. This is clearly not the first time trading D-Will has come up in casual reporting blurb format, but what kind of legs could the news have this go-around? History would tell us this is more than likely old soup re-heated, click-bait, a rumor based off hearsay from who knows when, -- but could it be more serious than that?
Between the injuries, the down years, the massive contract, and now the recent surgeries, Williams' trade value has never been lower this off season. However, with the idea of saving face having gone out the window this summer re: Jason Kidd and Paul Pierce, this could be the most opportune time to pull the trigger on a youth injection and cost saving move.
It might not be pretty, but the time to act may be upon us. Or not. As it stands now, it's all just Twitter RT fodder. Time will tell.
