Deron Downplays Facing Mavs After Snub

Tonight at Barclays Center, (Deron) Williams will face his former pursuers when the Nets battle the Mavericks for the first time since Williams snubbed Dallas for Brooklyn.
“It’s just another game,” Williams said.
It would probably be a little different if Williams were facing a team he didn’t merely flirt with joining, but actually had played for. Things also might be different if the game were in Dallas, where Williams might receive a harsh reaction from the fans for rejecting their team.
Williams did not want to chat much about his offseason dealings with Dallas.
“That’s behind me. I’m part of the Brooklyn Nets,” he said. “There’s no reason to re-visit that.”
