Deron Williams Rumors 2012: Guard Has Narrowed Choice To Either Nets Or Mavericks, According To Report

Deron Williams is one of the most highly coveted free agents of the 2012 NBA offseason, and his focus on either the Brooklyn Nets or the Dallas Mavericks remains unchanged. The Nets have more room to offer Williams a substantial salary, but that isn't the only factor in his decision. As he told the LA TImes (via SB Nation Basketball):

"I want to go to a place where I feel like they will have a chance to build and build fast. I'm not really in the mood for being part of a rebuilding process. I'm getting older. I'm about to be 28. I want to win. I want to win now. Also, I want to live in a place where I want to live and my kids will enjoy living. That's pretty much it."

Fans may not have to wait long to find out where Williams will end up: Free agency begins July 1. At that point, Williams' agent will reportedly tell other teams that the guard is only interested in the Nets and the Mavericks.
