08:19 AM ET 09.01 | There has been speculation from Jazz fans concerning whether or not Deron Williams wants to stay in Utah anymore. After losing teammates Carlos Boozer, Ronnie Brewer, Wes Matthews and Kyle Korver, is there any reason not to believe that Deron would want out? D-Will had an interview with David Locke (the new radio voice for the Jazz) a couple weeks ago, and he stated that he no longer lives in Salt Lake City during the summer months. Is this a sign? ... If D-Will chooses to opt-out of his contract in 2012, where would he end up? How about following his roots in Dallas to play with the Mavericks.

Of course he want's out. There's a little something called a TREND, and one seems to be happening in the NBA - I'm not entirely sure, but pretty sure *sarcasm*

iam not sure about that...if by 2012 the Jazz have not signed any other good players to their roster i think he will be gone !

Dallas would be a great fit for him with his mentor as Jason Kidd !

It seems as every star wants to leave their team, the only players I can see retiring with their first team is Wade, Kobe and Duncan.

In all seriousness, whenever I hear about these situations I think about it in terms of what I would do if in "x" player's position. And if I were in Deron's spot, I might also be looking for a way out. Utah, while consistantly good, somehow can't ever jump the hurdle to becoming good enough to win it all. Now they've lost Boozer, which I uderstand isn't the end of the franchise, but it certainly doesn't help. I'm not saying I couldn't be persuaded to stick around, but the Jazz would really have to show me something good.

Utah is a stuck team, they have good players but not good enough to advance to the next level or challenge the Lakers. They have a great pg but the rest of the team are great role players, they need another dominant player like Melo to be able to compete for the title, they are kinda like the Hawks out west but a tad better.

He ain't going anywhere.....

Don't be so sure about that. Reason Utah never gets over the hump is they make a lot of small roster tweaks to save money and all those things hurt them. They didn't have depth against the Lakers and they've lost a lot of good players as well. Al is good but he's coming back from a nasty injury and I don't think he fits into their run offense...
