Eight former Jazz players that still have something to play for

Deron Williams Next List » 8 of 8 « Prev
Current team: Brooklyn Nets

Years with the Jazz: 2005-10

2012-13 stats: 18.9 ppg, 7.7 apg, 3.0 rpg, 44 FG%

Playoff prognosis: Game 1 Deron was exactly what the Nets need to get anywhere both this season and in the long-term. Williams shot 9-of-15 from the field for 22 points, and added seven assists, three steals and two rebounds to his totals.

Game 2 was a disaster. Look past the 10 assists to his 1-for-9 shooting performance, and it's easy to see why Chicago was able to steal the second game on the road.

For Jazz fans, it's a chance to see what Williams can do with a team that is truly his own in the playoffs, as opposed to the 50-50 deal he and Boozer seemed to have during their days in Utah.

Williams will certainly get a lot of criticism if he can't get his team past a Derrick Rose-less Bulls squad that boasts his former teammate (Boozer) as their best player.
