Great news for all Jazz fans. The Jazz and Deron Williams have agreed to a contract extension. There will be a news conference tomorrow to announce it.
“There’s going to be a great announcement tomorrow afternoon in Salt Lake City,” said Williams’ agent, Bob McClaren, from his Houston office. “One that will make everyone happy, I think.”
Everyone happy, eh? That all but rules out a 3-year deal. So we’re looking at 4 or 5 years. Not bad. He’ll be max money. AK’s already there. Booze will be close (if he sticks around). Okur’s going to want a raise as well. Someone’s going to have to go.
But that’s all irrelevant right now. Deron is a Jazz-ster for years to come! Celebrate! But don’t party too hard… the RMR starts tomorrow and I still have to get a piece up on the Jazz players you’ll recognize.
