I think Mikhail Prokhorov might be learning pretty quickly that we do business a little differently in America. I’m not saying it’s a good or bad thing, but it appears like he is getting played here in the states. The Russian gazillionaire got no love from Carmelo Anthony…..So the Nets traded for Deron Williams. They gave up promising rookie Derrick Favors, Devon Harris, and picks. Seems like a good idea right? Maybe not….
If you have followed any of Deron Williams’ press conferences or statements he’s being AWFULLY vague. The fact he won’t sign a contract until 2012 has to be a red flag. Utah traded the guy because they didn’t want to go through what the Nuggets did with Carmelo Anthony. The Nets had a front row seat for that saga…… and now they’re going to be going through it themselves.
I get what Deron is saying. He wants to see what the Nets do, blah blah blah.. Maybe he will stay, but what can be done that will keep him there? Make no mistake about it, the Nets will pay the guy handsomely. Maybe they’ll get Dwight Howard, maybe they’ll make another great deal, or maybe it’ll be too late. You better believe that when Williams got traded to the Nets his first thought was, “Alright, it’s only a little over a year, then I can go somewhere good.” What is business guru Mikhail Prokhorov going to do to change that thought………
