With the last season, most recently in New Jersey official behind them, which eventually Wheel Brooklyn.
The star guard met the media yesterday, as the networks to clean their closets on Thursday next season, the final loss to Toronto. Although Williams made it clear he still wants to opt out of the last year of his shop and free testing agency that does not mean it has already had one foot in the door.
“I’m still seeing all the possibilities here,” Williams said he wants his new contract signed by the Olympics, he said. “I went to [Barclays Center] few days ago and saw what it was, and is an exciting stage to be a great place to play, and I was always confident in this organization.
“Although we choose not to, I never said I did not re-sign with the Nets, and remains the same.”
Because the number of injuries this season with the Nets employed, including Brook Lopez in five games is limited, Williams never had a chance to see what this team was capable of. But regardless of what the group was first, Williams knows that the Nets still have much to do to become a championship contender to be.
“I think we have a few more pieces,” he said. “We had a playoff team. But the championship, that’s another level and I think we have some guys for veterans who are going to happen.”
The Nets began a push to update the list of veteran talent during the season when they acquired Gerald Wallace of Portland. Wallace, like Williams, can face their last year of his and a free agent this summer. They are two of several players on a team with an uncertain future, including Jordan Farmar, who has a player option for next season, Lopez, a restricted free agent and free agent Kris Humphries and Gerald Green.
But regardless of what happens with the other players on the roster this summer season of networks is considered a success when Williams re-signs, and a failure if it does any Nets coach Avery Johnson was willing to.
“Right now, especially with the season just ended, I would not have to play our first game in Brooklyn, without or without Deron or Gerald Green Gerald Wallace, or think about the kids,” said Johnson. “But I have to do is, you must have set plans and contingencies for most situations, and that is part of the [Director General] work of Billy [King] and our work.”
“But now we are almost all at the Calderon, and hopefully, as almost everything in Deron, hopefully, will pay dividends.”
