    Default Deron Williams is not happy that Jazz

    Utah Jazz: Deron Williams admits he is not happy that Jazz have lost key players to free agency

    LEHI While addressing media at his annual charity golf tournament Saturday, Deron Williams admitted to being somewhat "frustrated."

    And the All-Star point guard wasn't referring to a shanked drive or missed putt.

    Rather, Williams was sharing his feelings in the aftermath of the Utah Jazz losing their leading scorer, top rebounder and best 3-point shooter to the Chicago Bulls in a two-day span.

    "It was tough to see Booz (Carlos Boozer) and Kyle (Korver) go," Williams said. "But they made business decisions and you have to live with them."

    And learn to live without them on the court and locker room, too.

    That's the hard part for Williams.

    "Any time you lose two guys like that you're going to be frustrated," said Williams while hosting his Point of Hope foundation's event at Thanksgiving Point to benefit Shriners Hospitals.

    "But ... it's a business, and that's the way it went."

    Williams sent texts to both Boozer and Korver after finding out they were Chicago-bound and said he's "happy for both of those guys."

    Asked about how busy this past week had been for the Jazz during the free-agency frenzy, Williams joked, "Well, it hasn't been a really busy week for us. It's been a real busy week for some of our former teammates."

    On a personal level, bidding farewell to Korver was especially difficult for the Jazz star. Williams and the 3-point specialist became pretty tight friends off the court since the shooting guard was traded to the Jazz 2 1/2 years ago.

    "Yeah, it was tough," Williams admitted. "But I had a feeling after the season was over we'd have a tough time re-signing (Korver) and Wes (Matthews)."

    The Jazz are still working on re-signing Matthews, who's signed a $34 million offer sheet with Portland, but Williams believes Utah will still field a decent team next season.

    Williams has no idea, though, just how good the still-under-construction 2010-11 squad will end up being.

    For now, the summer vacationer said he's "just being patient" as general manager Kevin O'Connor works on filling in the missing holes and resolves the understaffed roster situation.

    Williams does believe the Jazz are still in need of "some depth in the frontcourt," especially because they're not sure how or when Mehmet Okur's surgically repaired Achilles heel will heal.

    But he likes Utah's nucleus.

    "We still have a solid team, you know," Williams said. "Are we going to compete for a championship? That's tough to say."

    This is one reason for the Knicks do not despair for CP3 !!!!!!!!

    Parker in 2011
    CP3 and Deron in 2012

    The Knicks will have at least 3 chances to win their elite PG in the next three years without having to get rid of their young talent.

    Felton is a good PG and can help develop guys like Gallo, Randolph, Fields and Chandler during 10/11 and maybe on 11/12.

    Dissatisfied with the Jazz, Deron Williams would be a target accessible starting at 2011.

    I've been sayin all along that I really prefer DWill over CP3. He's a better shooter, defender, post player, while being stronger and taller.

    Maybe not as flashy as Paul, but doesn't have his weaknesses. I can see him and Amare running endless pick and rolls. This guy would flourish under Dantoni's system.

    Deron, Melo and Amare in one team sounds scary as hell. Highly doubt it'll ever happen though one can dream.

    Yeah. I rather wait for Deron Williams' Free Agency than gut our entire team for Paul, quite frankly

    I hate people saying Paul is better. Deron Williams can play Defense can take it up against the bigs and his jump shot doesn't look like a JV HighScooler.


    Paul is super fast and athletic but as his injury plagued body slows he is gonna have to make shots and he is no Steve Nash.

    Give me Deron Williams over Paul anyday from this point forward.

    Deron Williams is not a better shooter or defender than Paul.

    Paul is the best PG in the NBA.

    His 22 ppg 11.5 assist and 2.7 steals with only 2 turnovers a game + 5 rebounds is the best season a PG has had in a long time.

    Paul isn't even in his prime yet.
