Deron Williams Admits Preference For Sloan's System
Deron Williams recently admitted that the system he played under while with the Utah Jazz was a better fit than the one he currently plays under with Avery Johnson. the Brooklyn Nets.
"I was injured the first year (and needed season-ending right wrist surgery)," Williams told the New York Daily News. "I've really had injuries while I've been with (the Nets) the whole time. And didn't have the talent around me that I did (with the Jazz).
"And that system (in Utah) was a great system for my style of play. I'm a system player, and I loved coach (Jerry) Sloan's system. I loved the offense there. We could've been a really good team. We just weren't that good defensively as a group."
Williams' shooting percentages have dropped significantly with the Nets.
"I believe I can adapt to anything," he said. "We're still a young team. Things don't happen overnight. It's still just December. We're working on it."
