As part of the first blockbuster free agent signing during this moratorium, superstar Deron Williams has signed with the Brooklyn Nets, Marc Stein of ESPN reports.

Williams gas agreed to a five-year, $100M deal with the Nets over a four-year, $75M deal with his hometown Dallas Mavericks.

The Mavericks have been looking to add a premier point guard, but Deron Williams is now out of the possibility.

Now, the Dallas Mavericks will have to resort to their back-up plan: signing the 38-year-old, former Maverick Steve Nash.

With Deron Williams off the market, other point guards like Nash, Dragic, Lin, Sessions and Brooks will start to sign with teams. Deron Williams is was arguably the biggest point guard name in free agency. Now that teams and players know that the the top floor general has been claimed, expect to see teams, like the Mavericks, start to heat up with contract signatures.

Steve Nash is expected to be up next.

As it stands, Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Gerald Wallace, Marshon Brooks, Kris Humphries, Brook Lopez, and Reggie Evans make up the Nets' roster.

Next, the Nets hope to acquire Ersan Ilyasova, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
