The Nets are apparently on Marcus Camby list of potential teams, according to Frank Isola of the Daily News See below:
Deron Williams: Nets getting Joe Johnson was key to me re-signing
"I was really close to going to Dallas. I actually thought that's where I was going to go," Williams said after the U.S. Olympic team opened training camp Friday.
After news broke that Johnson was Brooklyn-bound, Williams said he felt the Nets "for a longer time would be the better team.''
"Joe got me over the hump,'' he said. "I've never played with anybody like him, a guy on the wing that can get his own shot and also get me involved and is a great defender. We could be one of the top backcourts in the NBA for sure."
