New Jersey Nets star Deron Williams reportedly said that he wanted to play for the Dallas Mavericks.
During the NBA Finals, last June, Williams told members of the Mavericks that he would love to come back home and be a part of a team with Dirk Nowitzki, reports the N.Y. Daily News.
On Friday, however, Williams stated that he wanted to remain a N.J Nets player.
Reportedly, the Nets are hoping that they can keep Williams and also trade for Dwight Howard to bring with them as the team will move to their new home in Brooklyn, NY soon.
Last year during the 2011 NBA All Star Weekend, Williams reportdley told people close to him that he wanted to play in a bigger market, something Williams has denied. Weeks later Williams was traded to the N.J. Nets from the Utah Jazz, but his body language in the locker room indicated a desire to play for the Mavericks.
