Can the Nets Convince Williams to Stay?
And here’s what we don’t know:
1. If (Deron) Williams is going to stay.
2. If the Nets are willing to commit to long-term contracts or stay with short-term ones.
One of those could be tied to the other.
The logical move would be to stay away from long-term contracts in what is considered a pretty mediocre free-agent class and hold out until the summer of 2012 when the Nets move to Brooklyn.
But here’s the flaw with that logic: Can you convince Williams to stay following another 25- to 30-win season?
The Nets obviously have some quality pieces on their roster. Brook Lopez and Anthony Morrow immediately come to mind. Marshon Brooks has the potential to be another.
Otherwise, there’s not much else that stands out.
