Dallas Mavericks request waivers on Deron Williams

According to a report by Tim MacMahon of ESPN, the Jazz have expressed interest in reacquiring Williams in a trade with the Dallas Mavericks.

How about this: Alec Burks and the Jazz's extra 2017 first-rounder from Golden State to Dallas for the expiring deals of Deron Williams and Andrew Bogut.

Williams can't be traded without his consent due to his $9 million deal with the Mavericks after he played the previous season in Dallas. Williams was the No. 3 overall selection by Utah in the 2005 NBA Draft, where he immediately found a lot of success with the team.

Williams led the team in assists during each of his five seasons with the franchise, while also leading the team in scoring for the 2008-09 and 2010-11 campaigns.

More news: Jay Z is launching a venture capital fund

They are expected to sign former 76ers guard Hollis Thompson to a 10-day contract and are working out point guard Jarrett Jack, but would also be in the market for Williams if he reaches a buyout agreement with the Mavs. The Jazz traded him to the New Jersey Nets in 2011 after a tussle with then-coach Jerry Sloan, CBS Sports revealed.

Williams is averaging 13 points per game and seven assists on a Mavericks team going nowhere fast.

The Jazz are seeking depth at the point guard position to back up George Hill, who has missed 25 games to injuries. Given that the Mavs have a very slim chance to make the playoffs - they're fifth in a six-team race for the right to get swept by the Warriors - I'd make Williams and Bogut available as their contracts run out.

The Mavericks are at present, sitting in the 12th spot in the Western Conference with a 22-34 record. The Mavs should be looking to get future draft picks in return.
