Deron Williams plays well in start Sunday - Deron Williams (G) Brooklyn Nets

Deron Williams posted 16 points and added three rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 25 minutes Sunday.

Beijing brings out D-Will of old

On one possession during the third quarter, he used a series of crossover dribbles to drive into the lane and make a layup. On another possession during that same quarter, he used a crossover to create separation between himself and his defender before nailing a stepback jumper. This was the Deron Williams of old at work. Sure, it was just a meaningless preseason game, but Williams looked quick and agile, yet another sign that his surgically-repaired ankles are feeling great.

NBA Player Prop Bets via Bovada: The Nets get a 'meh,' overall

Las Vegas isn't doesn't see much season hardware heading Brooklyn's way this season, as no individual Nets player or coach is within 30/1 odds overall. The closest is Bojan Bogdanovic, who is at 30/1 odds to win Rookie of the Year. Nets new head coach Lionel Hollins is at 35/1 odds to win the NBA Coach of the Year award, while Deron Williams is at 45/1 odds to lead the NBA in assists for the 2014-15 NBA season. There are no other Nets on this list. Not one player in the MVP race, none in the Most Rebounds list, obviously, and none in the Points Per Game Leader list. I can't really say I'm...

Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams will be . . . better this year?

This is the SB Nation Utah Jazz site, and because of that I think we need to have a talk about Deron Williams. Deron Williams led his Illinois team to the NCAA Championship game. He was drafted by the Utah Jazz #3 in the 2005 NBA Draft. He became an All-Star, an All-NBA Player, and a Gold Medal winner with this team. A few playoff flame outs later combined with the front office's continual a) inability to get a player to get them over the hump, b) the continual trading, waiving, or walking of his boys, transformed Happy Deron into Pouty Deron. Then he continued to be a headache to our Hall...

#NBARank: D-Will drops. Again.

Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams was ranked 55th in ESPN’s #NBARank, registering a 6.72 rating. Here’s how D-Will’s #NBARank ranking has fallen since we started doing it four years ago: 2011: Ninth 2012: 10th 2013: 20th 2014: 55th We’ve already chronicled his tenure with New Jersey/Brooklyn several times, so there’s no need to do so again. But what we can say is Williams has looked healthy since undergoing offseason surgery on both of his ankles.

Kirilenko off to a strong start

NEW YORK -- You get the feeling that as long as he stays healthy, Andrei Kirilenko is quickly going to become a favorite of Brooklyn Nets coach Lionel Hollins. The 33-year-old veteran, who was plagued by back spasms last season, looked like his old self in Tuesday’s 111-94 preseason victory over Maccabi Tel Aviv. Kirilenko posted 13 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals in 24 minutes. Afterward, Hollins said if he had to give out a game ball, one would go to point guard Deron Williams and the other would go to Kirilenko “for what he did defensively and getting loose balls for...

Asset countdown: Marvin to the beat of his own drum

After ten days of voting, At The Hive's readers have determined that Marvin Williams is the least valuable asset remaining on the roster. The people have spoken! Marvin Williams is out. Williams led the voting with 42 percent of all votes, with Gerald Henderson (19 percent) and P.J. Hairston (15 percent) behind him. Williams will forever be remembered as the player the Atlanta Hawks picked ahead of All-Star guards Chris Paul and Deron Williams, and that's a shame. While he's certainly no All-Star, Williams has carved himself a nice NBA career. At a glance, Williams' per 36 statistics don't...

Hollins: I think D-Will will be an All-Star

Brooklyn Nets coach Lionel Hollins continues to hype his point guard. On Monday morning, Hollins told SiriusXM NBA radio when asked about Deron Williams, “I think he will be one of the top point guards in the league and I think he will be an All-Star.” Williams, who has played in three All-Star Games, has not been selected since the 2011-12 season. He has been injury-plagued over the past two seasons, but underwent offseason surgery on both of his ankles and has said he feels healthy.

Billy King says there will be no minute restriction for either Deron...

D-Will given rest day

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams was given a rest day and did not practice on Tuesday. “I just wanted to,” Nets coach Lionel Hollins replied when asked why he gave Williams the day off. “I wanted to give him the day off. KG [Kevin Garnett] had a day off and Brook’s had days off and I just wanted to give one and took Joe [Johnson] out of the practice late because he’s the guy that is in every drill and I wanted to give him time off too.
