DALLAS (AP) - Two people with knowledge of the arrangement tells The Associated Press that Deron Williams is set to join the Dallas Mavericks if the point guard clears waivers after reaching a buyout with the Brooklyn Nets.

Williams will sign with the Mavericks once he clears waivers Monday, the people said Friday on condition of anonymity because the deal can't become official until Williams clears waivers.

It's unlikely another team will claim Williams because he has underperformed since signing a max contract to stay with the Nets in 2012 and is still owed about $43 million over the final two years of that deal. The Mavericks fell short in their pursuit of the Texas native three years ago.
