Deron Williams is among the seven Eastern Conference All-Star reserves announced by the NBA on Thursday night. It will be Williams' third (and third straight) All-Star appearance, and his first as a member of the East.

"I am very honored to be selected to this year’s All-Star game," Williams tweeted. "I would like to thank all of the coaches in the Eastern Conference."

He was the only player from a sub-.500 team selected to the East All-Stars.

It's the Nets' 20th All-Star selection since they came to the NBA and their first since Devin Harris in 2009. (Full list after the jump.)

Joining Williams on the list of East reserves is Chris Bosh, Luol Deng, Roy Hibbert, Andre Iguodala, Joe Johnson, and Paul Pierce. The East starters are Derrick Rose, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Dwight Howard.

The All-Star Game will be played on Sunday, Feb.26 and televised on TNT.
