#5 Deron Williams

The continued demise of Williams’ career is baffling. Yes, his injured ankles are one reason but it’s perplexing how a player who is supposed to be in his prime can plummet as far as D-Will has in such a short period of time. His production dipped significantly this season – dropping four points per game on his average from last season and seven points from two years ago.

Is there a team out there that believes Williams is still elite enough to consume the remainder of his $100 million contract? The Nets probably wouldn’t be asking for much in return – anything to remove that scarring contract from their payroll.
