The Nets don’t yet know if Dwight Howard will be joining them when they make the move to Brooklyn. Among those they will have will be veteran forward Gerald Wallace who re-signed for $40 million over four years and recently acquired Joe Johnson.
Leading the way will be the prized free agent of this summer’s class, Deron Williams, who agreed to stay on board for another five years. The All-Star point guard
put pen-to-paper signed his new $98.75 million contract in the most 2012 way possible early this morning to make it official.

“I am really excited to be able to officially say that Brooklyn is home,” Williams said in a statement. “It is an incredible time to play in Brooklyn and to be a part of this organization, the first sports team to call Brooklyn home in over 50 years.”
