That's because it was reported by Brian Mahoney of the Associated Press that Dallas Mavericks point guard Deron Williams was waived on Thursday and is now expected to join the Cavs in their quest for a second consecutive championship. According to Lowe, the Jazz have tested the trade market for power forward Derrick Favors over the past few weeks, but he does not know if they were really considering moving him. Hill had on-off performances since then, including in their recent loss against the Dallas Mavericks on February 9.
During the 16-17 season, Williams is averaging 13.1 points, 2.6 rebounds and 6.8 assists in 29.3 minutes per game.
During his six seasons in Utah, Williams guided the Jazz them to the Western Conference Finals in 2007. Williams has maintained an offseason home in the Salt Lake City area, despite his trade from the Jazz in 2011 to the Nets.
Williams led the team in assists during each of his five seasons with the franchise, while also leading the team in scoring for the 2008-09 and 2010-11 campaigns.

Kevin Pelton: Sellers. With the New Orleans Pelicans adding Cousins, the Mavericks' odds of coming back to make the playoffs this season have gotten even longer.
The 32-year-old Williams was once thought of to be one of the top point guards in the league and still has plenty left in the tank.
The Jazz are seeking depth at the point guard position to back up George Hill, who has missed 25 games to injuries.
The Jazz expressed some interest in reacquiring Williams via trade, but talks never reached a serious stage, sources said. It might not take a lot to get him from the Dallas Mavericks, as Utah could likely get away with just offering a future first-round draft pick.
