NEW YORK (AP) – Deron Williams is staying with the Nets.

The All-Star point guard says on his Twitter page that he “made a very tough decision today” and posted a picture of the new team logo that accompanies the Nets’ move from New Jersey to Brooklyn.

A person with knowledge of the decision says Williams told the team Tuesday he was accepting their five-year contract worth $98 million.

Williams, the top free agent available, chose to stay with the Nets over signing with his hometown team, the Dallas Mavericks.
