Thus announcing his decision to re-sign with the Brooklyn Nets. Moments after that it was confirmed from multiple sources that the Nets and Williams have come to an agreement on a deal for five years and roughly $100M, keeping Williams a Brooklyn Net through 2017.
Let us all collectively exhale. Feel better?
And with that the Nets finally have some measure of stability in their franchise and can begin moving forward. The Deron Williams era in Brooklyn officially can begin!
Much more on this later.
