New Jersey Nets coach Avery Johnson says Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is a "threat" to sign Deron Williams in free agency next summer.
"He's a threat, OK? I know the guy," Johnson told ESPN yesterday.
The Nets are moving to Brooklyn, and hope to reinvigorate the franchise by signing both Williams and Dwight Howard at the end of the season.
But if Williams goes to Dallas, Howard is off the table, and the Nets' grand plan to form the NBA's next super-team will be an abysmal failure.
