Deron Williams to opt out of deal with Mavericks

Deron Williams

Deron Williams may not be with the Dallas Mavericks next season. According to Tim MacMahon of ESPN, Williams will be opting out of the second year of his deal with the Mavs.

The veteran point guard will be declining his $5.6 million player option in the hope that he’ll get more money. While he’s no longer a top-tier point guard, he is still a quality starter. The 31-year-old averaged 14.1 points and 5.8 assists in roughly 32 minutes per game.

MacMahon also notes that despite opting out, Deron Williams would like to stay home:

However, Williams missed the majority of Dallas’ first-round series playoff loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder due to a hernia injury. He will undergo offseason surgery to fix the injury, which might hurt his chances of being signed to a multi-year deal.

With the salary cap skyrocketing to $92 million for next season, it wouldn’t come as a shock if Deron Williams were to cash in as a result.
