Who is deron williams dating
It’s been almost six months since the Rockets reportedly approached the Nets about a potential swap of disgruntled center Omer Asik and guard Jeremy Lin for Brooklyn point guard Deron Williams. But in the aftermath of a disappointing second-round loss in five games to Miami, things may have changed.
Brian Geltzeiler of that this falling out between Williams and Nets management, specifically Nets GM Billy King, has resulted in a mutual decision between the two parties to split,” Geltzeiler wrote.
2.) Keep both Lin and Asik on the roster going into next season. The highest upside of those three paths would seem to be No. The Rockets cited injuries and a lack of continuity as being behind many of their inconsistencies in 2013-14, and delaying the arrival of the team’s next big piece would also defer the integration period with Harden and Howard.
All of a sudden Williams looks like he’s promoting a hip-hop album cover.
While this may seem like a coincidence, Carlos Boozer’s time in Utah has a similar trajectory.
After all, Williams is coming off a season in which he posted his lowest PER (17.6) since his second year in the NBA and his fewest points (14.3) and assists (6.1) per game since his rookie year.
Additionally, Williams is owed million over the next three years, which means that the Rockets would essentially be “capped out” for the remainder of Harden and Howard’s current contracts.
They’d still have mid-level exceptions (MLE) each summer, but by and large, it would be an move by Morey with the Harden/Howard/Williams trio. It’s not as if Williams’ subpar season is part of a broader trend.
