Don't expect enormous impact from this offseason's free-agent class
This is a free-agent class of experience, to put it kindly. When the contracts expire Sunday, there will be one All-NBA star who is approaching his peak. His name is Deron Williams, and his options appear to be focused on re-signing with the Brooklyn Nets or moving back to his hometown of Dallas to renew the championship hopes of the Mavericks.
