09:45 AM ET 03.05 | Maybe a trip to London can convince Deron Williams to go to Brooklyn. Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov plans to use his team's two-game European trip to start selling Williams on his future with the team, ESPN.com reports. The Russian billionaire and All-Star point guard spoke briefly after his Nets debut in San Antonio, for which Prokhorov flew in from a vacation in Canada. "We had a chat with him in San Antonio, just 10 or 15 minutes, and I feel he likes the idea of the organization, of the Nets," Prokhorov said Friday. "We are not in a rush. We have one and a half years to make a really good team and then go on and win a championship, because that is our one goal."

Lets here it for the Cavs! 3-0 vs the Knicks this year!

Mikhail Prokhorov should go after DeRozan. After watching him this year, he's gonna be a good one and would fit in great with the Williams and Lopez tandem.
