Joe Johnson: Williams Made Trade Happen
Joe Johnson knew Williams was wired in the first week of July.
“Four or five days before the trade, Deron called me,” Johnson said. “He said, ‘what do you think about coming to Brooklyn?’ I was like, ‘man, where are you getting this from?’ … I don’t know what kind of strings he was pulling, but he made it happen.”
Williams organized practices before the start of camp, with most players taking part in September, so that the team’s new players could get up to speed. He was in Joe Johnson’s ear this summer in the Hamptons. And he wants to be held accountable.
