Mavericks free agent target Deron Williams has decided to stay with the Brooklyn Nets, forcing the Mavericks into plan B.
Williams posted a link on his twitter account today with the message "made a very tough decision today." When you click on the link, it takes you to a Brooklyn Nets logo.
Williams was considered a long shot by many to sign with the Mavericks. The Nets could offer him more money, and a longer contract. The Mavs were hoping that a pairing with former MVP Dirk Nowitzki and the opportunity to be close to his hometown in the The Colony, would be enough to sway him to Dallas.
The Mavericks must regroup and change their free agency focus. Steve Nash is believed to be their next target.
