Nets GM Billy King says team is going in the right direction
"I think we’re headed in the right direction, and if you look at our team this year, being as banged up (as it was), to beat Chicago in Chicago, Philly in Philly, New York in New York... we won some games in tough places,'' King said. "And you see things getting in the right direction. Winning is important. And that’s what I told Deron: ‘We’re not rebuilding this year. We’re going to build this team to win next year.’''
So, Williams is counting the days left in this season, but it doesn't mean he's counting down his time left in a Nets uniform. He might simply be counting down the days until this lockout-shortened, injury-marred season is over and the Nets can get to building for next year. He won't get a chance to see what a team of himself, Wallace and Lopez might have looked like before this season ends, but Williams said a team with those three would definitely be a playoff team, and King is confident we'll see that trio in Brooklyn next year.
