Phoenix Suns In The Mix For Deron Williams
New Jersey’s Deron Williams figures to be one of the top free agents on the market, so it’s understandable the Phoenix Suns would have some level of interest.
A three-time All-Star, Williams has career averages of 17.6 points and 9.2 assists per game, and is regarded as one of the best point guards in the NBA.
And, with the Suns possibly losing Steve Nash in free agency and having a desire to get younger and more athletic anyway, there are some who think they could be in the mix for the younger Williams’ services.
Of course, could is the operative word, because as ESPN’s Chris Broussard points out, Williams’ top choice is to remain with the Nets, while signing with his hometown Dallas Mavericks is next in line.
After that, though, he brings up the Suns, noting they are probably the “only other team with enough cap room to offer Williams a maximum contract that can get in the mix for him.”
