A day after the New York Knicks debuted Carmelo Anthony to the press, the New Jersey Nets will introduce their new star on Thursday, when they welcome Deron Williams to Newark in a press conference at 3 p.m.
When the trade came down, Williams was in Dallas where the Jazz will take on the Mavericks Wednesday night. The point guard will fly to New Jersey for the press conference before getting right back on a plane with his new teammates for their two-game Texas road trip.
General Manager Billy King and head coach Avery Johnson will be with Williams at the press conference in which he will pose with his No. 8 Nets jersey.
