The Brooklyn Nets' top priority is re-signing point guard Deron Williams, but they're exploring other options in case he decides to bolt to Dallas. According to Nets beat writer Stefan Bondy, the Nets are meeting with free agent point guard Steve Nash on Sunday.

Nash seems unlikely to return to Phoenix, and is attracting interest from multiple suitors. The Toronto Raptors are openly courting him, and are rumored to be offering a three-year deal worth eight figures per season. The Nets will almost certainly not be interested in signing Nash if Williams decides to return, but they could do worse than the 38-year-old two-time MVP if they don't get to keep Williams. At the very least, Nash should help the team get some folks in the seats early next season, and he's still a starter-quality point guard.
