Deron Michael Williams (pronounced /ˈdɛrən/ DERR-in) (born June 26, 1984), nicknamed D-Will, is an American basketball player currently with the New Jersey Nets of the National Basketball Association (NBA).

He is a two-time All-Star and a gold medal winner at the 2008 Summer Olympics.

In elementary school and middle school, Williams won two state wrestling championships. In 1993, as an eight-year-old, he won the 67 lb. weight class Texas State championship.
