The likelihood of this happening would be slim, but……
For the sake of argument, I am pretty sure if the Nets somehow did get them both, Deron Williams would resign and considering how the EAST seems to be getting weaker not stronger they could make some noise.
Still think it is a pipe dream, but it is an interesting pipe dream.
After another losing season in 2012, Williams will hit the free agent market this Summer without the Nets somehow securing the services of another top flight free agent to play alongside him when they move to Brooklyn. While Gerald Wallace is a nice compliment, he’s more of a 3rd option in the Andre Iguodala mold, rather that the one-two star power of Stat and Melo. All along, Williams has stated that he wants big man Dwight Howard or he will likely go back home to sign with the Dallas Mavericks.
Howard’s odd decision to re-up one more season in Orlando does complicate things, but according to some reliable sources in the NYC tri-state area, Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov and minority owner Jay-Z are hard at work trying to secure the services of both Howard and Jackson to embark on the Nets initial season’s journey in NYC’s biggest borough, the basketball starved Brooklyn.
