Not so fast, Nets! If you thought a large billboard truck and Avery Johnson were going to help you seal the deal and sign Deron Williams to a new contract on July 1, you were wrong. That's because the Mavericks just pulled out their big gun in order to try and recruit Williams to Dallas. No, they didn't get Mark Cuban to drop off a bag full of big bills at D-Will's crib. Instead, they put Delonte West on Twitter and told him to go to town. This was the result:

Obviously, the Mavericks have a leg up on the Nets now. Who wouldn't want to play for the Mavs after hearing that pitch? So, what's it gonna be, D-Will?
