In the 2012/13 season, “D-Will” signed a contract worth 98.7 million USD for 5 years with Nets. Deron is now the top star of the tournament with three consecutive appearances in the All-Star period. He also successfully competed and won a gold medal in basketball with the USA in the 2012 Olympic Games.
