According to ESPN’s Marc Stein and Chad Ford, the Utah Jazz have traded their All-Star point guard, Deron Williams for Devin Harris and rookie power forward Derrick Favors.
The trade, according to sources, will also involve the Golden State Warriors with multiple draft picks heading the Utah’s way.
Deron Williams was said to be feuding with Utah management over recent personnel decisions. He was also rumored to be feuding with coach Jerry Sloan culminating his Sloan’s resignation. Williams, Sloan and the Utah front office denied this claim.
Devin Harris has been in trade rumors all year and was also sought after by Portland in a deal for pg Andre Miller as well as the Dallas Mavericks. This is the second time he has been traded while under coach Avery Johnson.
