Welp, The Nets Didn’t Get Carmelo, But Deron Williams Isn’t A Bad Consolation Prize

- By Bossip Staff

Were sure Deron is happy to be out of boring a** Utah, but to be shipped to New Jersey…six in one hand, half dozen in the other.

The Utah Jazz traded point guard Deron Williams to the New Jersey Nets for rookie forward Derrick Favors, point guard Devin Harris and a first-round pick in the 2011 draft and a first-round pick in the 2012 draft.

In a separate deal that has not been finalized, the Nets are expected to acquire forward Brandan Wright and center Dan Gadzuric from the Golden State Warriors and send Troy Murphy to the Warriors, said a league executive who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to comment on the trade until it became official.

After failing to land forward Carmelo Anthony, who the New York Knicks acquired Tuesday in a multi-player deal involving three teams, the Nets came through with a shocking, big-time acquisition.

A very stable organization for several years, the Jazz have been through a tumultuous two weeks. Longtime Jazz coach Jerry Sloan stepped down after 23 seasons Feb. 10 and his right-hand assistant, Phil Johnson, also resigned that day. The Jazz then named assistant Tyrone Corbin head coach.

Favors will fly to Salt Lake City today and is expected to be in uniform when the Jazz play at the San Antonio Spurs Friday.
“We feel that we’ve addressed a current need at point guard with Deron’s departure, as well as the future with draft picks and a big man,” Jazz general manager Kevin O’Connor said in a statement. “To do so we had to give up an All-Star, but we feel like this is a win for both sides.”

Congrats either way, hopefully you can bring some hope to “Dirty Jersey” and the Nets. They’ve been bad for SO long, but what the hell was Utah thinking!?!?
