Report: Mavs Have ’50-50′ Chance of Signing Deron Williams

It’s Mavericks mourning day, and Deron Williams’ name is now the hot topic in Dallas. ESPN.com reports that Dwight Howard’s decision to commit to the Magic for another season has put a big wrench in the Mavs’ plan to acquire DWill: “One source well-acquainted with Williams’ thinking told ESPN.com this weekend that the Mavericks, in their current state, have no better than a ’50-50 shot’ of getting D-Will’s signature in July … despite the fact that the Nets aren’t any closer to landing Howard than they are.”

    Mavericks is done – nobody will go there

    Dirk has 2-3 years max left in the tank as an elite player IMO. If Deron signs, I doubt it would be more than a 3-year deal or so.

    Deron to the Mavs, Dwight to the Spurs.

    LMAO ESPN reports Mavs have a 50/50 chance. In other words “Deron either will or won’t sign with the mavericks. As to what Deron will actually do, well we didnt try and find out.”

    No reason for Deron to sign with the Mavs besides that he’s from Texas, the Mavs are old and washed up, that franchise will probably never have a chance of winning a title anytime soon. It makes sense for Deron to resign with Brooklyn and hope that they can get Dwight Howard or he can sign with the Knicks.

    Misso, I’d love to see a sign and trade of Deron for Jameer and Hedo’s expiring contract.

    My money’s on DWill and Kaman to the Mavs next year. A couple pieces like that and they can make another run. GO CUBAN

    I like dannyb’s call on Kaman and DWill going to the Mavericks. The Mavs will have quite a few guys come off the roster as expiring contracts and if they can pick up a couple of 1st/2nd tier guys then there is nothing to say that they can’t get back in and compete. It’s going to be tough because next season OKC will be great, T-Wolves will have worked it out, Spurs will be back, Clippers, Lakers and there will be a MASSIVE logjam at the 6th-9th spots…

    D-Will? why not Steve Nash, bring him back to Dallas, c’mon cuban make it happen coz Nashty is badly needed in dallas and he is better than DWill. moment of truth.
