Deron WilliamsDeron Williams was at the L.A. Convention Center on promoting his new video game “NBA Baller Beats” which features him on the cover and will be released in September. As reporters started asking questions the truth about his feelings toward the Los Angeles Lakers came out.

According to the LA Times, “I used to hate them. They pushed us out of the playoffs three years in a row,” Williams said of the Lakers, referring to when they beat Williams’  Utah Jazz each postseason from 2008 through 2010.

The Lakers would like nothing better than replacing Ramon Sessions, who struggled averaging only 6.8 points on 35.3% shooting in the Western Conference semifinals with New Jersey Nets point guard Deron Williams.

The problem…the Lakers don’t have the cash to sign him and he knows it.

“I know they don’t have any money to just go out and sign me,” Williams said. “It’ll have to be some kind of deal.”

Deron’s 21 points per game were ranked third among the NBA’s guards and his 8.8 assists could be helpful to Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum.

In essence it would give the Lakers another big three, but they would have to remove Pau Gasol from the equation. They owe him $38.3 million over the next two years and have committed $78.4 million to only seven players next season.
