Mavericks' Deron Williams: Will be ready for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (sports hernia) recently noted that he'll be fully healthy for the start of training camp, The Dallas Morning News reports. "Feeling really good. [The sports hernia is] healing pretty well; I'm doing a lot of work on and off the court. I haven't got the full-go clearance yet but that's coming soon," Williams said.

After the Mavericks were eliminated from the postseason this past spring, Williams underwent surgery to address a sports hernia that had beeh hampering him for around a month. He said that he's only been cleared to do some light running and jumping to this point in his recovery, but is scheduled to meet with a doctor on Aug. 1, after which he expects to receive the green light to perform more high-intensity workouts. Williams is scheduled to open the upcoming season as the Mavericks' starting point guard after re-signing with the team on a one-year, $10 million contract.

Mavericks' Deron Williams: Goes back to Dallas on one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (sports hernia) agreed Sunday to re-sign with the Mavericks on a one-year, $10 million contract, ESPN.com's Marc Stein reports.

Williams was probably the top point guard left on the free agent market after Mike Conley, Rajon Rondo and Jeremy Lin found homes, and the Mavericks did well to retain him at a relative discount compared to some of the lavish deals others have received this offseason. Once one of the premier players at his position, the 31-year-old Williams has seen his production trail off the last three seasons while health concerns have become a more frequent issue. He averaged 14.1 points, a career-low 5.8 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 1.4 three-pointers across 32.4 minutes per game last season while missing time due to calf, knee, hip and hamstring injuries, along with a sports hernia that required offseason surgery. Durability concerns make it risky to trust him as a top fantasy point guard, but he still offers enough when on the court to be a roster-worthy player. With limited competition behind Williams on the depth chart, he should once again open the season as the Mavs' starting point guard.

Mavericks' Deron Williams: Will opt out of contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams will opt out of the final year of his contract with the Mavericks, Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Williams, just like his teammate Chandler Parsons, is looking to take advantage of the increasing salary cap and seek a significant pay raise for the 2016-17 season. While Williams' age is definitely a factor going forward, the Mavericks may be reluctant to sign the former All-Star if his price gets too high.

Mavericks' Deron Williams: Undergoes sports hernia surgery
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Williams recently underwent surgery to repair the sports hernia that hampered him throughout the end of the Mavericks' season, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

Williams suffered the injury late in the season and was forced to miss time during the playoffs after an aggravation. He was always expected to undergo offseason surgery, so this news comes as no surprise for the 31-year-old guard. The expected recovery timeline is six-to-eight weeks, so he should be good to go by early-to-mid August. Williams recently declined his $5.6 million player option for the 2016-17 season in hopes of securing a multi-year contract. The Mavericks remain the favorite to retain his services, although they may wait for a clean bill of health before committing to a new deal.

Mavericks' Deron Williams: Will decline player option for next season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deron Williams is expected to decline his $5.6 million player option for the 2016-17 season and enter free agency, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.

Williams wants to secure a multi-year deal before heading into his 12th NBA season. The veteran hasn't ruled out returning to Dallas and even appears to favor that route, although it remains to be seen if the Dallas Mavericks want to pony up to a multi-year contract for a player who will undergo offseason surgery to repair a sports hernia. The surgery requires a six-to-eight week recovery, so Williams is still expected to be available at the start of training camp. Once he officially declines the option, Williams will be an unrestricted free agent and will have the option to sign with anyone. In 65 games during the 2015-16 season, he finished with averages of 14.1 points, 2.9 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 0.9 steals over 32 minutes.
