Deron Williams Extension: Williams, Nets Reportedly Agree To 5-Year, $100 Million Deal

The Brooklyn Nets have reportedly agreed to a 5-year, $98-million contract extension with star point guard Deron Williams

Williams himself tweeted "Made a very tough decision today...." and then posted a picture of the Brooklyn Nets logo (via Williams' Twitter).

Williams had been deciding between a return home to Texas with the Dallas Mavericks or staying with the Nets and signing an extension. Ultimately, he chose to stay with Brooklyn, which has been trying to stockpile some talent to surround the point guard. The Nets recently traded for Hawks guard Joe Johnson, re-signed forward Gerald Wallace and reached an agreement with Bosnian forward Mirza Teletovic.

Last season for the Nets, Williams averaged 21 points, 8.7 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game in 55 games.
