04:45 PM ET 06.13 | Deron Williams attended Brooklyn Nets head coach Jason Kidd's introductory press conference to show his support of the team's hire. Realistically, Williams knows the risk but he's also conscious of the benefits a 19-year veteran point guard can provide. Kidd joined the Nets as coach just more than a week after he retired as a player, but his career credentials make the transition reasonable. A veteran staff behind him will make it work. Williams, Brooklyn's leader, will help usher in support for Kidd having played with him on the men's national team and against him for his entire career. ???It???s a risk, but I think it???s somebody we can grow with," Williams said of Kidd. "I think it???s somebody we???re definitely going to respect and listen to. And I???m excited about the ways he???s going to help me as a player and a leader.???

Kidd come call his own number and come off the bench if DWill isn't playing well.

Williams needs to remember that there's a reason he has two ears and only one mouth.
