    Default Semi OT: Deron Williams will opt OUT of contract

    http://espn.go.com/new-york/nba/stor...s-opt-contract

    "I'm not going to opt-in. It's not monkey-see, monkey-do," Williams told the New York Daily News Friday morning. "Wherever I go is hopefully where I'm going to retire."

    -------------------

    Hopefully we have a shot at him but that quote makes me think he will think texas more than anything else...

    I can see jersey trying to tank so they have the best possible shot at top 3 pick. Karma will play out and we get #4

    He said this before the season even started. I think he leaves, but this isn't news.

    Didn't demand a trade, period. Utah just saw what happened with Melo and decided to offer him up to the team with the best assets they wanted back for him.

    If Portland actually catches a damn break this off season, we could potentially have a rebuild roster of

    Deron Williams
    Eric Gordon
    Nic Batum
    LaMarcus Aldridge
    Jared Sullinger

    And someone like Harrison Barnes, Jeremy Lamb or Terrence Jones off the bench with Nolan Smith and Elliott Williams

    We may only have a 1% chance of getting him, but I hope they make a big pitch for him.

    Ha WHAT?! It'd be a great off-season if we got any of those 3 players, let alone all three. We can dream though!

    Without a time machine and the proper draft picks, there is no way they will end up in Portland.

    Deron might play for the Blazers if PA sells the team to someone in Ft. Worth.

    Outside of the hometown thing, I don't see many things more appealing for him in Dallas than in Portland.

    He has maybe two years with Dirk, whereas he has at least 4 with Aldridge (who is also from Dallas). We have more roster flexibility and potential than Dallas this year, and in the near future with two potential lottery picks, and Nico. And he is really close friends with Wessy.

    Ah good call. But he doesn't seem like the money grubbing type. He wants to win and play, and has complained quite a few times about how he has no crowd support in NJ.

    Considering how many teams will have cap space this summer, it is very possible that some team will throw big money at him. I just hope they wait until AFTER we've used up our cap space.

    Unless its a max deal kinda, makes sense for batum to wait tell the few marque guys are gone so teams pancc thinking they'll get nothing and overpay him.

    He's no recluse. You're just mad that no one likes your hamburger stand.

    I've seen owners come and go longer than you've been alive, and the only Lakers, Sonics, Grizzlies, or Blazers owner who was less reclusive than Allen was Sam Schulman.

    You may be new to capitalism, so I'll fill you in--very rich people avoid the hoi polloi, for many good reasons.

    The Dallas' sun is much more appealing than Portland, especially for a guy who's from there.
