Brooklyn Nets: Five Must-Watch Games Of The 2016-17 Season

Will Deron Williams Play?

  • Date: Sunday, March 19 at 12 p.m. ET
  • Opponent: Dallas Mavericks
  • Venue: Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York

Deron Williams and the Nets had a less than amicable separation.

After years of frustration caused by inconsistent play and injuries, his contract was bought out last summer with two years remaining. Williams has since joined the Dallas Mavericks.

When the Mavericks visited the Barclays Center last season Williams was conveniently out with a strained hamstring.

This will be his first appearance in front of Brooklyn fans who shouldn’t be happy to see him.

Deron Williams let them down. He was supposed to lead the Nets through a difficult transition to Brooklyn and instead became another symbol of their numerous failures.
