The Brooklyn Nets have all of their eggs in Deron Williams' basket, as the free agent will apparently make a decision to stay with the club or not in the next couple of days. Either in preparation of putting talent around D-Will or in anticipation of fielding a team with more than three players, the Nets are looking at additional players at free agency opens and trades get going. In addition to a potential trade for Joe Johnson, the Nets have also discussed a trade for Luis Scola, reports Yahoo!'s ace reporter Adrian Wojnarowski.
Woj reports that the teams were in deep talks on Saturday, but Dwight Howard's decision to again request a trade to the Nets may have ended the trade for now. News about Howard broke in the hours before the official start of free agency.
Woj also reported that if a trade for Johnson falls through, the Nets, flush with cap space, are prepared to make a major free agent offer to O.J. Mayo.
