The deal, scheduled for completion later Wednesday after a trade call with the league office, would also involve the Golden State Warriors and bring multiple draft picks to Utah.

The Nets came out of nowhere Wednesday morning and acquired superstar point guard Deron Williams in a blockbuster trade with the Utah Jazz. Not only that, they gave up less than they would've given up for Anthony (two firsts, instead of four) while stealing some of the New York Knicks' thunder in the process.

Anthony is set to make his Madison Square Garden debut Wednesday night.

There's just one caveat that separates this move from being a layup to a slam dunk, and that's Williams signing an extension. He is slated to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2011-12 season.

According to some of my colleagues at ESPN, Williams cannot sign an extension with the Nets until July 9, 2011 if the rules stay the same under the current CBA. Williams signed an extension with the Jazz on July 9, 2008, and, per NBA regulations, must wait three years after the previous extension is signed. That is, of course, if the current CBA still exists by that date.

It's only a good deal if he stays.

All things considered, the Nets go the better player between Melo and Deron.

i would bet they sign him if they can pull another player in the mix from free agency. they still have a bunch of high picks and have a promising future and i bet they had a pretty good feeling he would sign or they wouldnt have made the move.

they have a good young center, the second best pg in the nba (i still put nash as bes), a new areana in brooklyn in '12 and a very rich owner who wants to win. they should be an attractive destination for fa's.

all they need to do is get one other top player to come here and they will keep him and be all set!
