Deron Williams wanted to talk to Mark Cuban

Jerry Lai-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Dallas native told reporters that Cuban's absence from his meeting with team officials helped make his free agency decision this summer.

Not to re-open old wounds, but Deron Williams gave some interesting quotes to New York media members on Monday when asked about his decision to re-sign with the Nets instead of the Mavericks:

Cuban's decision not to attend the meeting with Williams left many in the NBA scratching their heads, especially in comparison to how hands on in Mavericks roster decisions he normally is.

Personally, I'm not convinced Williams won't end up regretting his decision to team up with Joe Johnson, Gerald Wallace and Brook Lopez in an Eastern Conference that features LeBron James and the Heatles.

Dallas has more cap flexibility going forward and a better chance of grabbing an elite big man, the only way to beat LeBron. Cuban might have been able to convince Williams of this.
