Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams has been the focal point of a lot of free agent talk already this month and the NBA season isn’t even over yet. Still, Williams’ destination is a very popular talking point, as numerous teams are reportedly interested in acquiring the All-Star guard.
On Wednesday, Williams was in L.A. for the electronics convention known as E3, and discussed the possibility of joining the Lakers and what the team would need to do with Mark Medina of the L.A. Times.
As far as the Lakers are concerned, Williams appeared well aware that the Lakers’ payroll is limited.
“I know they don’t have any money to just go out and sign me,” Williams said. “It’ll have to be some kind of deal.”
This makes it very apparent that Williams is clear of the financial limitations currently holding the Lakers back from making a large free agent signing. But it also signifies that he has at least considered some of the possible ways for the team to still acquire him.
In the past Williams has expressed his distaste for the Lakers, and reiterated that same statement on Wednesday. But left things with a rather ominous, “we’ll see.”
