Deron WilliamsThe Numbers:
2012-13: $17,177,795
2013-14: $18,466,130
2014-15: $19,754,465
2015-16: $21,042,800
2016-17: $22,331,135 (early termination option)

Contract: Deron Williams signed a five-year maximum contract with the Brooklyn Nets worth approximately $98.8 million in the 2012 NBA offseason. The fifth year is an early termination option.

The then-New Jersey Nets traded for Deron Williams in February of 2011, gambling that they could convince him to re-sign at the end of his contract to a maximum deal with the team once they moved to Brooklyn.

They were right: despite overtures from the Dallas Mavericks and even a claim by Williams that he was prepared to buy a house in Dallas, Williams re-upped for the maximum allowable contract with Brooklyn. Because Williams re-signed with the Nets, the contract pays Williams over $25 million more than any contract he could have earned with another team.

Options: Deron Williams's contract has an early termination option, which gives Williams the right to end his contract with the Nets after four seasons. If Williams exercises that option, his contract cannot be extended with the Nets, and he becomes an unrestricted free agent in the 2016 offseason.

Expectations: Deron Williams is expected to be with the team for the duration of his contract, though he is the only member of the team that has even as much as an option for the 2016-17 season. All other players have contracts that either expire or options that run out by 2015-16.
