NETS TRADE FOR STAR PG DERON WILLIAMS

After striking out on LeBron James, the Nets backup plan was Travis Outlaw. But when Melo spurned the Nets for NYC? Mikhail Prokhorov's regime was ready, making a quick deal to bring superstar point guard Deron Williams (right) to the Nets. While it took a lot of young assets, including Derrick Favors, Devin Harris and draft picks, if the Nets can lock up Williams past 2012, it will work out as a huge score as the team prepares for its move to Brooklyn.(Credit: AP)
