It's just his opinion but Deron Williams' long-time teammate --now Jazz television analyst-- Matt Harpring believes Williams performance vs. the Jazz shows he was "one foot in and one foot out" of playing in New Jersey.
Harpring, who played four years with Williams, told viewers Monday, "When you are one foot in and one foot out, like I think Deron Williams is, you're going to put up a stat line like he's got tonight." Williams was 7-for-21 overall against Utah. He added, "Boy, he looks disinterested. He doesn't even look like he's really into the game. The Jazz are doing a good job of making him frustrated ... He just doesn't know what is going on."
Other Salt Lake media think they see the same thing.
