Welcome to the Nets, Deron Williams.

Deron Williams is coming east.

According to multiple sources close to Al Iannazzone, the Nets will send Derrick Favors, Devin Harris, their 2011 first-round draft pick (unprotected), the protected Golden State first-round pick, and $3 million in cash to Utah in exchange for Deron Williams.

In a separate deal, the Nets will also send Troy Murphy to Golden State, receiving Dan Gadzuric and Brandan Wright from the Warriors in return.

This has literally come out of nowhere and I’m going to take a little while before putting up a reaction. My reaction now: I love it. More thoughts to come later.

Consider this your open thread.
