2012 Free Agents: Deron Williams
ESPN Insiders look at what the future holds for the Nets' star point guard
- Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE/Getty ImagesDeron Williams has several options to weigh between now and summer 2012.
After witnessing the frenzy caused by the 2010 NBA free-agent class that included LeBron James, Dwyane Wade et al, this year's free-agent crop simply paled in comparison. However, the potential 2012 class -- featuring Chris Paul, Deron Williams and Dwight Howard -- is sizing up to rival 2010. This week, ESPN Insider's NBA experts will profile these three free agents -- and several others -- better than the FBI. Today we take a look at Williams.
David Thorpe: Unlike Chris Paul and Dwight Howard, who can be the most elite players at their respective positions while playing in any system, Deron Williams needs some help if a team truly wants to maximize his talents. That's not to say he wouldn't be an All-Star in almost any system, because he probably would. But given his size and power as a point guard, there are some fits that are better than others.
To read the full 2012 free-agent profile for Deron Williams, including a look at which teams are the best fit for him, become an ESPN Insider today.
