Al Iannazzone of the Bergen Record reports that the Utah Jazz have agreed to send two-time All-Star point guard Deron Williams to the New Jersey Nets in exchange for Devin Harris, Derrick Favors and two first-round draft picks. Wow.
This is yet another step in the Jazz's weird year. It comes two weeks after forever-tenured coach Jerry Sloan resigned, only three days after signing a new contract. And Sloan quit after he and Williams nearly came to blows at a recent halftime, according to Yahoo. Sloan reportedly also felt undermined with ownership.
