Report: Deron Williams re-signs with Mavericks on a one-year deal

The Dallas Mavericks have re-signed point guard Deron Williams on a one-year deal for $10 million, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.

The three-time All-Star signed with the Mavericks a year ago after taking a buyout from the Brooklyn Nets. He played in 65 games last season, averaging 14.1 points, 2.9 rebounds and 5.8 assists.

Williams missed eight games late in the season due to a sports hernia and played in three of the Mavericks’ playoff games before he required surgery.

Once a top-10 scorer in the NBA, Williams’ play has started to decline over the past couple of seasons, but he proved some nights to still be very effective.  This is a good move by the front office.
