The Time is Now to Trade Deron Williams

As previously mentioned, Williams is making around $9 million this season on a contract that is expiring this summer. This is a decent chunk of money that can be matched by a wide variety of players on the trade market.
Obviously, a non-contender wouldn’t trade for Williams most likely, but a contender who could make the money work could be interested in renting Williams for a few months.
Teams trading for Williams know that he can walk in the summer for nothing and that is exactly the appeal factor for some teams. Whether it is getting off a longer contract or simply needing another scoring option for the playoffs, Williams would have value for a contender.
