Nets Rebuffing Trade Interest In Deron Williams

With Dwight Howard apparently ready to commit to the Magic for 2012/13, the outlook for the Nets has become cloudier. But even now that they may not have a chance to acquire Howard today or this summer, the Nets aren't likely to trade Deron Williams, tweets Colin Stephenson of the Star-Ledger. According to's Marc Stein, the Nets are rebuffing trade interest in Williams, telling teams they're not looking to move him (Twitter link).

According to Stephenson, the Nets are willing to take their chances on convincing Williams to sign long-term with the team this summer. With Howard potentially off the market, it will be a tougher sell, but the Nets should still have plenty of cap space to try to woo other free agents to Brooklyn.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reported earlier today (on Twitter) that the Nets are looking at other trade scenarios that could bring in help around Williams. John Hollinger of, meanwhile, explored some deals involving Williams the Nets could explore if they decided to shop the star point guard.

    If the nets can’t get Howard, i still think they will retain DWill. And for them i think the best thing to do is do the Cavs way of rebuilding. Get some ugly contracts to collect some high draft picks. I know its not favored and DWill might not like it, but i think you can build quickly with this draft this year and gather more assets for next years deadline possibly?

    I agree with PRKnight.

    I read somewhere that DWill feels comfortable with management and coach Avery. They have a big man in Lopez who can make a big impact when healthy and with 2 draft picks in the top 15 and a deep crop in this years draft, perhaps they can add a Sullinger/Barnes type and even Austin Rivers/John Henson with what they have. It’s not the worst case scenario.
