Mavericks waive point guard Deron Williams

24 February 2017, 12:51 | Simon Arnold

The Utah Jazz are reportedly looking into a possible reunification with former All-Star point guard Deron Williams. Ferrell averaged 15.3 points per game and 4.6 assists, leading the Mavs to five wins in seven games as a starter. Deron Williams is now in his second season with the Dallas Mavericks.

Williams also can not be traded without his approval because he's playing under a one-year contract.

Kevin Pelton: Sellers. With the New Orleans Pelicans adding Cousins, the Mavericks' odds of coming back to make the playoffs this season have gotten even longer.

WR Cruz visits with Panthers
Cruz overcame knee and calf injuries that forced him to miss almost two seasons before returning to play the entire 2016 season. Cruz had only one more 1,000-yard season before he suffered a knee injury in the sixth game of the 2014 season in Philadelphia.

Bogut probably doesn't have value, and Williams' salary might make him more viable as a buyout candidate, but if the Mavericks could get a second-round pick for either player they should pounce.

With Cousins in tow, the Pelicans worked with Jones' representatives to find a more favorable situation, but no trade materialized ahead of Thursday's 3 p.m. ET deadline. The 32-year-old would have to forfeit his free-agent Bird rights if he is dealt to another team. Deron Williams has been a popular trade target due to his veteran status and expiring $9 million contract. As for how Williams would fit on Utah's roster, he would join George Hill among the team's top two point guards.

Hill is now backed up by Dante Exum and Shelvin Mack, both of whom struggle with consistency. While this is a product of slow-paced, defensive game Utah love to play, they could certainly use a high scoring guard to come off the bench and produce immediate points. Barea sits the next three games as he recovers from his calf injury. It might not take a lot to get him from the Dallas Mavericks, as Utah could likely get away with just offering a future first-round draft pick.
