08:03 AM ET 12.06 | That collective sigh of relief may be coming from Nets nation after hearing Deron Williams' take on the franchise and his future. "It's a strong possibility, I have a strong feeling that I'll re-sign here," said Williams who has said he intends to opt out at the end of the season when he can re-sign a five-year deal with the Nets for $100 million, some $42 more than if he signed an extension. ... And the easiest, though certainly not the only way to keep Williams? Get Dwight Howard. "That would be enough to convince me," Williams said. And Williams might be enough to convince Howard to sign on to stay if the Nets worked out a deal. "I'm sure he would yeah. Get that fifth year, play with me. I'm sure he would," Williams said.

Mma, kd signed his. 1st extension.......Just as howard did, dwill, lbj, wade, melo.EVERYONE signs that deal with their original team (if offered)It is THIS contract, the 3rd one, which jas caused all the controversyDon't make kd out to be a pariah, when they ALL did the same thing

These small market owners are greedy as hell. The way the system is set up
1. They get the best players coming out of college
2. They get to keep them for 7 - 8 years
3. When these stars are ready to leave the small market teams get something in return. Utah and Denver are prime examples.

Then the big market teams get to take over the players and for the rest of their careers which is another 4 - 7 prime years.

So what's the fuzz! You can't expect to sabotage someone their whole career. If Orlando and New Orleans are dumb they will get burned after February. The system is set up so the best players can get to play for small and big market teams. If that's not fair enough I just don't know what else to ask for...
