Utah Jazz Trade Deron Williams To New Jersey Nets
NBA All-Star, Deron Williams was traded to the New Jersey Nets for Devin Harris, Derrick Favors and two first round draft picks right before the NBA’s Thursday deadline.
His agent didn’t get a call about the trade and neither did he.
The former Utah Jazz point guard was watching ESPN’s Sportscenter in the training room when he found out about the deal. He was stunned and dismayed that he will be leaving Utah.
The secretive move gives some validity to the rumor that Williams was responsible for the sudden retirement of Jazz head coach Jerry Sloan.
The Nets will also receive forwards Brandan Wright and Dan Gadzuric from the Golden State Warriors in a separate trade that sends forward Troy Murphy to the Warriors. New Jersey will also send $3 million to the Jazz for Williams.
Who got the better end of the trade?
