Deron Williams said he is undecided about his Nets future and is talking of renting not buying when he returns from Turkey after the lockout ends, the New York Post reported Sunday.
Williams can opt out of the final year of his contract, worth $17,779,458 for 2012-13, when this NBA season -- which is yet to even begin because of the labor stoppage -- comes to an end.
That decision affects every phase of the Nets operation, of course. And Williams has said virtually everything the Nets want to hear about staying, until now.
In his latest blog from Istanbul, where he has been playing with Turkish team Besiktas during the lockout, Williams did not sound like a guy who is completely committed to the New Jersey/Brooklyn Nets.
"The lockout is still going. If the CBA [collective bargaining agreement] is finalized and I'll need to come back to the NBA, I think it takes some time for them to get everything on paper, maybe three or four weeks. If we make a deal, I'll try to come back as soon as possible," Williams wrote.
But he added, "As far as living, I don't have a place in New Jersey yet. I don't want to buy anywhere, just planning to rent for now. I'm not sure yet what I'm going to do after the NBA season. We'll see."
