Jazz and Deron Williams aim for extension soonPosted by Inside Hoops
The Salt Lake Tribune (Ross Siler) reports: The agent for Jazz guard Deron Williams said Monday he has continued having conversations with general manager Kevin O’Connor and is still hopeful to reach agreement on a contract extension by the end of the week. “I think that’s still everyone’s objective,” agent Bob McClaren said, “and I’m certainly not discouraged by the process at all.” Williams has said he would like to finalize an extension before he leaves either Saturday or Sunday for USA Basketball training camp in Las Vegas. Williams will travel from there to Beijing for the Olympics. McClaren said he has talked “several times every day” with O’Connor since the two met Wednesday and that no additional meeting had been scheduled.
