Deron Williams, Nets reach 5-year deal
NEW YORK — Deron Williams is staying with the Nets.
The All-Star point guard says on his Twitter page that he “made a very tough decision today” and posted a picture of the new team logo that accompanies the Nets’ move from New Jersey to Brooklyn.
A person with knowledge of the decision says Williams told the team Tuesday he was accepting its five-year contract worth $98 million.
He is averaging 17.6 points and 9.2 in seven seasons. He played his first five seasons with the Utah Jazz, going third overall in the 2005 draft, before being traded to New Jersey during the 2010-11 season.
OAKLAND, Calif. — A person familiar with the situation says the Golden State Warriors met with free agent Brandon Roy earlier this week about joining the team in his attempted comeback.
Roy, a three-time All-Star, announced his retirement in December after five seasons with Portland because of chronic knee problems. The 27-year-old has averaged 19 points, 4.7 assists and 4.3 rebounds in 321 games. Minnesota and Cleveland also have expressed an interest in Roy.
Roy was the No. 6 overall pick in the 2006 draft by Minnesota, which traded him to the Blazers.
Raptors sign Fields to offer sheet for three years
NEW YORK — Knicks guard Landry Fields could be on his way out of New York after agreeing to sign an offer sheet with the Toronto Raptors. The deal reportedly is for three years and about $20 million.
Since Fields is a restricted free agent, the Knicks will have three days to match the offer after it can be signed on July 11. The second-round pick from Stanford in 2010 was a first-team All-Rookie pick in 2011 and followed by starting 62 of the Knicks’ 66 games last season, averaging 8.8 points.
