EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Nets general manager Bill King believes All-Star point guard Deron Williams will join the team in its new home in Brooklyn after exploring free agency this summer.
Speaking at a year-end wrapup five days after the Nets missed the playoffs for the fifth straight year, King sounded confident that he would be able to re-sign Williams after the 27-year-old opts out of the final year of his contract.
Heading into the offseason, King has four players under contract for next season — rookie guard MarShon Brooks, rookie forward Jordan Williams, backup center Johan Petro and shooting guard Anthony Morrow.
Starting center Brook Lopez is a restricted free agent. Power forward Kris Humphries is unrestricted and forward Gerald Wallace has a player option to decide whether to stay.
