Deron Williams Narrows List To Two; Harden Expects To Extend

Hey Deron. Can I get JayZ's autograph?

File this under "it is a good thing we aren't putting all our eggs into the sign-a-free-agent-with-cap-space basket." With Chris Paul and Dwight Howard already off the market, it looks like Deron Williams will be next. And if you hoped to pick up James Harden next offseason, think again.

Deron Williams only interested in signing with Brooklyn Nets or Dallas Mavericks, sources say - ESPN New York

When NBA free agency begins at midnight July 1, Brooklyn Nets star guard Deron Williams will be choosing from a two-team list that only features the Nets and the Dallas Mavericks, according to sources close to the situation. Sources told ESPN.com on Saturday night that, while this summer's No. 1 free agent remains "up in the air" about which team he'll ultimately chose, Williams already has made the decision to narrow his list of potential destinations to those two franchises.

James Harden of Oklahoma City Thunder says he expects to sign extension - ESPN

The reigning Sixth Man of the Year says he doesn't plan to be coming off anyone's bench but Oklahoma City's. James Harden said Saturday that he "loves it" with the Thunder and expects a contract extension to be worked out between his agent and Oklahoma City general manager Sam Presti.

It takes a unique set of circumstances to score big via free agency, and the number of teams that failed in their attempts to land big names outweighs the winners by a lot. Or to put it another way, for every Miami Heat, there are 3 or 4 New Jersey Brooklyn Nets ...who might ironically become a success story of sorts if Deron decides to stay.
