Salt Lake Tribune beat writer Brian Smith reported that former Utah Jazz point guard Deron Williams learned he was traded to New Jersey on SportsCenter while in the training room.
Truth is stranger than fiction. I was joking in my previous post and it was much closer to reality than I thought. Jazz front office didn’t even call Deron or his agent. Cold-blooded. Or Karma depending on who you side with. On one hand, DWill seem to be out of control. He needed an ego check. On the other hand, this is not how you treat your franchise player, the face of your organization for the past six years. All I know is somewhere out there on his farm, Jerry Sloan is smirking.
