Deron Williams Will Not Sign an Extension

Slightly overshadowed by the news of Chris Paul's "request", was the report that Deron Williams will not sign an extension with the New Jersey Nets, and instead opt for free agency next summer.

The news is not all that surprising. Reports were that when D-Will was traded to the Nets last season, he was less than thrilled. New Jersey does have a potentially bright future with the move to Brooklyn in 2012, lots of money to spend, and lots of draft picks. Naturally, Deron will probably wait and see if the Nets' front office can surround him with quality talent (ahem, Dwight Howard).

As far as the Knicks are concerned, this is good news as Deron is definitely on their radar, though it doesn't look like they'll be short of All-Star point guards who want to join their team....
