Williams Wants Contract Before Olympics
Deron Williams wants to make a decision about where he’s going to play in the future by the Olympics.
“I don’t want to play in the Olympics without a contract,” said the Nets point guard, who has reiterated his intentions to opt out of his current deal and become a free agent.
If Williams holds firm to his statement, it could rule him out of the Olympics in London. USA basketball officials have repeatedly said they’ll set the 12-man roster in June, but the NBA’s free-agency signing period begins July 1.
