Deron Williams WANTS OUT of the Brooklyn Nets.According to a Yahoo Sports report, Williams will still leave, even "if" the Nets win the No. 1 pick in NBA draft lottery, Wednesday night. League sources are saying that Williams won't stay with the Nets, while awaiting Anthony Davis -- who will be the No. 1 draft pick of any team who wins the first pick in the NBA lottery -- to develop into a franchise star for the Nets.The source also goes on to say that even if the Nets give Williams a contract extension, Williams will still turn down the offer with the desire to leave.However, the only thing that can stop Williams from packing his bags and leaving is Dwight Howard. The source claims that if the Nets can trade for Howard, which would keep Williams with the team.The idea is to draft Anthony Davis, only to then trade him to Orlando (along with some other players) to hopefully get Dwight Howard to Brooklyn and give new life to Williams that he'll finally be able to win a NBA championship.

Deron Williams denied a report from Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski that had sources claiming he would leave the Nets if they were unable to acquire Dwight Howard.

The NBA owned New Orleans Hornets are the winners of the Anthony Unibrow Davis lottery. Not the Michael Jordan owned Charlotte Bobcats who had the best odds of winning the pick after only winning 7 games.
Other notes: The Brooklyn Nets gave up their 6th overall pick to the Portland Trailblazers in a trade for Gerald Green. Goodbye, Deron Williams.

After eventful year in Orlando where he admitted Dwight Howard wanted him fired despite Howard denying it, Stan Van Gundy was eventually fired. And with open jobs in Charlotte, Portland, and possibly Los Angeles (Clippers), Van Gundy was obviously a candidate for at least one, if not all of those jobs.
But according to the NY Daily News, Van Gundy won’t be coaching any of those...
After the worst season in NBA history, the Charlotte Bobcats could use a player like Anthony Davis.
Unfortunately for Michael Jordan's team, it's been a long time since lottery luck shined on the team needing it most.
The Bobcats hope that trend ends Wednesday, when they have the best odds of earning the No. 1 pick in next month's draft.
