Popper: Why not Calipari?

Lionel Hollins has three guaranteed years as Nets coach, at $4 million or better. The Nets want to build around the veteran coach who had great success in Memphis ... but little so far in Brooklyn.  There's no indication he's in trouble. Moreover, it could disastrous for the Nets to dump him and hire their fifth coach in five years. Neither NBA coaches nor free agents are going to be attracted to a franchise that fickle. As Deron Williams has said, the constant change in coaches and staffs is a big factor in the Nets long- running problems. But let's say ownership wanted to make (another)...

Nets win again with Deron Williams on the bench, what gives?

Here are three thoughts from the Nets’ 123-111 win over the Pacers in Indianapolis Saturday night: 1. For the second straight game, Deron Williams found himself watching from the bench...

Deron: No way Kentucky would make East playoffs

NEW YORK –- Larry Brown says Kentucky could make a run for the playoffs if it played in the Eastern Conference. But Deron Williams and Jason Kidd –- whose teams reside in the East and are in the playoff race -– beg to differ. “Making the playoffs? Playoffs!?” Williams said in a Jim Mora-like tone, according to the Bergen Record. “There’s no way. I wish they would come in here. They’re really good.

Deron Williams doesn't think Kentucky would make the NBA playoffs in the Eastern Conference

The debate continues, as just about every year someone -- or many someones -- wonders aloud whether or not the best college basketball team -- usually Kentucky -- could beat the worst NBA team -- say, the 76ers. This year, however, there's some debate as to whether the Kentucky Wild Cats could actually play a full NBA season and make the playoffs in the Eastern Conference. Crazy, right? Well, SMU head coach Larry Brown didn't seem to think so, saying this year's Kentucky team could make the Eastern Conference playoffs. Deron Williams, however, seems to think that notion is indeed...

Numbers Crunch: The Jarrett Jack Problem

Reed Wallach has been crunching some numbers on Jarrett Jack and doesn't like what the read out is telling him. The Nets have a problem. In the midst of trying to make a miracle run to the postseason, one player seems to be holding them back. His name is Jarrett Jack. Full disclosure, I thought Jack was key to the Nets remaining afloat during December and January, scoring and dishing out the rock while Deron Williams struggled to stay on the court and the team gave too much time to Darius Morris. Now though, head coach Lionel Hollins has become somewhat addicted to playing the Georgia Tech...

Jazz Derrick Favors returns to the home that didn't want him -- Game Preview

Utah Jazz (25-36) @ Brooklyn Nets (25-35) Barclays Center • Brooklyn, N.Y. 4:00 p.m. (MT) • TV: ROOT Sports • Radio: 1280 AM / 97.5 FM Earlier today I broke down how the Utah Jazz got from before- Deron Williams to what the team looks like today (full post here). While scouting the Brooklyn Nets (full report here) I couldn't help but notice that while they do have a number of legit NBA bigmen like Brook Lopez and Mason Plumlee, I don't think they have a real game changer. There is irony here because we learned that the Nets, when trading for Williams, ended up saying good-bye to...

Nets Deron Williams will always remain a huge part of Jazz history

Looking at the trades the Jazz made to get Deron, to move Deron, and now to move on from him. When you think about the Utah Jazz, and their best players, invariably you think of John Stockton, Karl Malone, Pistol Pete Maravich, Mark Eaton, Adrian Dantley, and then end up in historical revisionist fantasy camp. We liked Al Jefferson better, but Carlos Boozer was superior in production. Andrei Kirilenko and Mehmet Okur were All-Stars, but didn't help the team get to the NBA Finals like Jeff Hornacek and Bryon Russell did. One name that is slightly overlooked is Deron Williams....

We reflect: Three years since Deron Williams' 57-point game

It was (hopefully) a look into the future. On March 4, 2012, Deron Williams, the franchise cornerstone of the New Jersey and soon to be Brooklyn Nets dropped 57 points on the Charlotte Bobcats. Deron Williams was on fire, and showed his talent off that was hopefully going to carry over into Brooklyn the following season. The matchup, though, pitted two of the worst teams in the league, but it still caught the attention of the basketball world. Williams was utterly electric. He hit three's. He drove to the lane utilizing his strong build. He used his nifty crossover to get past futile...

Forever (Thaddeus) Young ... in so many ways

In recent years, Brooklyn has taken a world class beating on the trade market.Whether it was going all in on Deron Williams or trading the clothes off their back for the aging Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, the Nets have gotten shelled whenever they’ve pulled the trigger on a big deal. You can argue that D-Will was a great deal when it happened, but now...  They have done well on the smaller deals, like getting Jarrett Jack and Sergey Karasev for Marcus Thornton and the rights to two Europeans. Two weeks ago, with the trade deadline rapidly approaching, another disaster appeared to be...
