Season three of the television show Suits premiered last night. Now I don’t watch the show, but it did get my attention because of a fictional plot involving Brooklyn Nets star Deron Williams.

Like I said, I don’t watch the show and didn’t see last night’s episode, but it doesn’t appear that D-Will was actually on the show. Instead the story focused on a lawyer who is supposed to be representing him in contract negotiations with the Nets.

The lawyer is looking to get D-Will a big time raise and threatens a Nets official (which I think is supposed to be the general manager, but he’s way to white to be Billy King) by suggesting that he will not show up for a Game 7 in the finals (or at least that’s what is alluded to). Ultimately the Nets official gives in and the lawyer gets D-Will triple his salary.

The entire thing is obviously fiction from start to finish. D-Will is still under contract with the Nets through the 2016-17 season and is owed $81.59 million over that four year span. Even if it is fiction, if the Nets do get to a championship Game 7, I don’t see a measly $240 million stopping Mikhail Prokhorov from making sure his star player is on the court so maybe the real D-Will and his agent should take notes.

Here’s a clip from the show:

    I see a measly thing called the salary cap stopping him from doing that.

      Lol. It was a joke. Maybe Prokhorov could convince him the same way he convinced Kirilenko though.
