Lakers News: Deron Williams Keeps Options Open With Lakers

New Jersey Nets point guard Deron Williams has made a wish-list of teams he would like to play for if the Nets cannot build a championship quality team. In simpler terms, if the Nets cannot acquire Dwight Howard, Williams will find another place to live.

ESPN reports that Deron Williams has the Dallas Mavericks, New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers on his desired destination teams. Williams would prefer to remain and build something with the Nets in Brooklyn, but just like every player, he would like to win.

Still a lot must work in the Lakers’ favor in order for them to acquire Deron Williams. Not only must they add younger players, but cap space may also become an obstacle.

“Then there are the Lakers. Williams likes Los Angeles and lives in nearby San Diego during the offseason. Before the season began, the three teams on his wish list were New Jersey, Dallas and the Los Angeles Clippers, according to sources. But with the Clippers having traded for Paul, playing there is no longer a possibility.

Getting to the Lakers would be difficult for Williams because they will not have cap room in the summer and they lack the promising young prospects the Nets would look for in return.”

The Lakers could add another team in the deal which could send younger players to the Nets, or they can explore the amnesty option and get rid of a contract. There were rumors that the front office was thinking about using the amnesty clause on Metta World Peace, and doing so now would help the team in bringing in Deron Williams.

The Lakers would surely be a much better team with Williams on their roster. Not only is he a dynamic point guard, but he has the ability to score the ball when Kobe cannot. If the Lakers really want to make a push for the NBA Finals, Deron Williams must be a person of interest for the front office.
