Mavericks waive point guard Deron Williams

24 February 2017

The Jazz have not won a playoff game since Williams' departure. In 439 total games with the Jazz, Williams averaged 17.3 points, 9.1 assists, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.1 steals per game.

As for the Mavericks themselves, they have told Deron Williams they will buy him out if he wishes to become a free agent, according to Stein. In five and a half seasons with the Utah Jazz, Deron Williams spent his best years of his playing career.

During the 2010-11 National Basketball Association season, the Utah Jazz traded Deron Williams to the New Jersey Nets for Derrick Favors, Devin Harris, a 2011 first-round pick (Enes Kanter), a 2013 first-round pick (Gorgui Dieng), and cash. He helped Utah advance to the 2007 Western Conference Finals, but the Jazz were eventually eliminated in four games against the powerhouse San Antonio Spurs.

Williams suffered toe injury this season.

It's unclear what pieces the Jazz would be willing to deal for Williams, but with the point guard on an expiring contract, the Mavs would want something of value in return.

Williams signed with the Mavericks in 2015 after being waived by Brooklyn and is now in his second season with the team, averaging 13.1 points and 6.9 assists on 43 percent shooting in 40 games this year. As for how Williams would fit on Utah's roster, he would join George Hill among the team's top two point guards.

Kevin Pelton: Sellers. With the New Orleans Pelicans adding Cousins, the Mavericks' odds of coming back to make the playoffs this season have gotten even longer.

With just 48 hours until the deadline, it will be interesting to see if any actual deal can be made between Dallas and Utah.
