Unlike Dwight Howard, Deron Williams will not opt-in and waive his termination option with the New Jersey Nets. He will opt-out this off-season and looks to become a free agent. 

"I'm not going to opt-in. It's not monkey-see, monkey-do," Williams told the New York Daily News on Friday morning. "Wherever I go is hopefully where I'm going to retire."

Dwight Howard has changed his mind several times this year, and just waived his termination option to stay with the Orlando Magic for the 2012-13 season.

"I'm not (going through the same things) because I've said all year I'm going to play this whole year out and see what happens," Williams said. "So I haven't been flip-flopping and gone back-and-forth. It's not even close to being the same situation."

Williams has been receiving interest and is rumored to go to the Dallas Mavericks this off-season, since they have the cap space. Unless if the Nets can get some winning done this season and get some quality players in the summer, Williams will be signing with another team.

Where do you think Deron ends up?
