Happy birthday, D-Will

By Mike Mazzeo

NEW YORK -- Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams turned 29 on Wednesday.

Last offseason, the Nets parked a truck outside D-Will's Manhattan home wishing him a happy birthday.

He ended up signing a five-year, $98 million contract to remain a Net.

Williams will soon head back to Utah to enjoy this offseason now that his children have wrapped up school in the city.

The New York Daily News reports that the Nets have had discussions about trading the No. 22 overall pick for C.J. Miles, D-Will’s former Jazz teammate and friend.

Miles, 27, shot 38.4 percent from 3-point range last season and knocked down a career-high eight 3-pointers en route to scoring 33 points against the Nets on Dec. 29.
