The Deron Williams era in Brooklyn is officially over.

"The Nets and Deron Williams have reached a buyout agreement, per source," TNT's David Aldridge reported Friday.

It was just three years ago when Williams agreed to stay with the Nets on a five-year, $98 million contract deal.

The 31-year-old only averaged 13 points a game this past season, which is the lowest average for Williams since his rookie year (10.8 PPG).

It also looks like Williams is going home.

"ESPN sources say Deron Williams is expected to sign a two-year deal with Dallas in the $10 million range once he hits the open market," Marc Stein writes.

Mark Cuban tried to get D-Will three years ago, but the veteran point guard elected to go to Brooklyn, which is unfortunate because Williams is a shell of his former self.  However, Dallas needed a point guard and this is the best realistic option for them.
