Jazz may be Interested in Trading for Deron Williams

After a flurry of National Basketball Association trade deadline activity, the Dallas Mavericks made one more move.

It appears as though the Dallas Mavericks could be pretty active at Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline.

He now sits fourth on the team's all-time assist leaders list with 4,003, and also features in the top 10 for points, minutes played, three-pointers made, offensive rating and win shares for the team. No trade is considered imminent.

The 32-year-old Williams was once thought of to be one of the top point guards in the league and still has plenty left in the tank. D-Will spent five seasons with the Nets, and was named an All-Star twice during his time there. The guard is now playing on $9 million contract in his second season with Dallas and would have to forfeit his free-agent Bird rights if he is dealt to another team.

Williams signed a one-year deal with the Mavericks back in July, receiving a no-trade clause as part of the contract from the team. At 22-34 on the season, this makes ideal sense.

Documents: After shooting, Roof went toward 2nd black church
Further court documents show prosecutors ultimately withdrew their request to introduce information about Branch AME at trial. Roof is also seeking a new federal trial, saying prosecutors didn't have jurisdiction to bring their case against him.

Mavericks officially announce Deron Williams has been waived. Barea to the Mavs lineup. I like Williams as a third guard who can anchor the second unit while also playing next to George Hill.

With the Mavericks parting ways with Williams, they have made it clear that undrafted rookie Yogi Ferrell will get the reigns as the team's starting point guard for the foreseeable future.

Hill is now backed up by Dante Exum and Shelvin Mack, both of whom struggle with consistency. Williams could profile as a fifth scorer in a Utah late-game lineup, joining Hill, Gordon Hayward, Rodney Hood and Rudy Gobert in a smaller look.

Should Dallas move both of these players, it would surely enable the team to get draft pick compensation and potentially a youngster in return.
