Deron Williams Trade Rumors: Nets Not Trading Star Point Guard

In the wake of Dwight Howard's on-again, off-again pronouncements about whether or not he is willing to remain with the Orlando Magic, the New Jersey Nets have been left to wonder what is next for them. One thing that won't happen if Howard does not agree to a trade to New Jersey is a trade of Deron Williams.

Alex Raskin of Hoopsworld reports that the Nets will hold on to Williams, who can also be a free agent this summer, even if Howard does not join them via trade by Thursday's 3 p.m. ET NBA Trade Deadline. Raskin said the Nets believe "Williams will re-sign if they can make themselves competitive in the offseason."

Howard has vacillated between saying he wanted to leave Orlando to saying he would stay for one more year, and no one knows for certain how the Magic are reacting to Howard's indecision.

The only thing that is certain is that the trade deadline is Thursday afternoon.
