Deron Williams was traded to the New Jersey Nets in 2011 after six seasons with the Utah Jazz. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, he was unhappy with the way the trade was handled – he learned about it while watching ESPN.

According to Berri, Williams’ level of play declined with his new team. “His shooting efficiency has dropped,” he said. “This could be because he doesn’t believe his teammates are a better option. … Whatever the reason, Williams has not been productive in New Jersey.”
