NJ had to make panic moves to appease DWILL (G wallace, j Johnson)
Not sure who that reflects worse upon, the nets or on Deron that he would actually be swayed by those short sighted moves.

Deron just keeps getting people fired. Lol.
I don't see anything controversial with that tweet. Complete over reaction by the Jazz.
Dudes, this is a business thing.
The Jazz have their twitter account to make Jazz related announcements, the employee that operates the account used it to state a personal opinion and his bosses didn't like that.
The Force is not with this one, eh? Heheh, totes.
Mmm...I just burned my tongue.
I doubt this is a controversy with most other teams. The only reason it's even a controversy right now is because Utah over reacted, issued public statements about it, and fired (or at least demoted) the guy.
When this tweet went out, nobody thought it was a big deal until the incompetent Jazz management made it a big deal.
Had it been almost any other team, it wouldn't have been an issue.
I'll even go so far as to say it wouldn't have been an issue in Utah if Larry was still running the show. He routinely said way more controversial things than that tweet.
Elton Brand? Brian Cardinal? Boris Diaw? AK47? Carl Landry? Luis Scola?
Oh wait, Tim Duncan and KG were available! I'm sure Brooklyn could have signed those 2! I'm sure SA and Bos would have let those 2 leave...
Of course it would have been wiser had NJ actually signed players that would have complimented each other. But that's not what desperate NBA teams held under hostage from their spoiled brat players can do.
See Cleveland, Denver, LA, and now Brooklyn as terrific examples.
KOC's best move was to ship Duron off for good (young) inexpensive pieces before he could hold this franchise hostage and either bolt or cause us to take on years of bloated lame duck contracts.
