Around the Nets Friday: Deron Williams will dunk on Drake

  • Deron Williams claims in an interview that if given the chance, he would definitely dunk on rapper Drake. Also, D-Will lists Nets minority owner Jay-Z as one of his favorite rappers of all-time.
  • After losing out on aging point guard Jason Kidd to backup Deron Williams, the Nets have turned their attention to another aging point guard, Derek Fisher. The Nets are now reportedly the front-runners to land Fisher, but the Mavericks, Bulls and Thunder have also expressed interest.
  • As the Nets look to fill out the rest of the roster, it is looking less and less likely that the Nets will have the resources to keep Gerald Green. Our own Devin Kharpertian with the aid of CBA savant Larry Coon go through the different roadblocks on a potential Green deal.
  • Another player who appears to be on the outside looking in at this year’s Nets squad is 2011 2nd round pick Bojan Bogdanovic. With no buyout in his contract with Turkish club Fenerbahce until next summer, the Eurostashed forward appears he will be “stashed” for at least another season.
  • If the Nets do somehow manage to add Dwight Howard to the roster, the subsequent luxury tax will add up to over 100M dollars over a four-year period for Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov.
