Deron Williams trade rumors have picked up again, with the former All-Star getting linked to the Utah Jazz now. Could Williams get traded to the Jazz before the NBA trade deadline? A deal can only take place if he decides it is time to waive his no-trade clause.
A new report by ESPN states that the front office of the Utah Jazz has contacted the Dallas Mavericks about working on a deal. This could be a very interesting NBA trade, as it would reunite Deron Williams with the city where he began his basketball career. Williams was the No. 3 overall selection by Utah in the 2005 NBA Draft, where he immediately found a lot of success with the team.
Williams signed a one-year deal with the Mavericks back in July, receiving a no-trade clause as part of the contract from the team. He now has the ability to veto any trade that the front office in Dallas comes up with, especially if he doesn’t want to play for a specific “new” city. Previously, it had seemed as though Dallas was intent on keeping him well past the NBA trade deadline, but that idea may have shifted a bit in recent weeks.
