Deron Williams to resign with the Nets
Deron Williams is staying with the Nets. The All-Star point guard said on his Twitter page Tuesday night that he ‘‘made a very tough decision today’’ and posted a picture of the new team logo that accompanies the Nets’ move from New Jersey to Brooklyn. A person with knowledge of the decision said Williams told the team he was accepting their five-year contract worth $98 million. Williams, the top free agent available, chose to stay with the Nets over signing with his hometown team, the Dallas Mavericks.
