The Nets didn't get Carmelo Anthony, but they still landed a superstar.

They also may have trumped the Knicks.

Sources confirmed reports that Utah guard Deron Williams is headed to the Nets in exchange for Devin Harris, Derrick Favors and two first round picks.

The news came as a shock in the wake of the failed pursuit for Anthony. In the end, the Nets came out of the trade chaos looking like stealthy winners.

Williams, 26, is one of the top guards in the league and an Olympic champion, but his relationship with the Jazz soured to the point that he reportedly forced out coach Jerry Sloan.
