Free-agent guard Deron Williams will meet with Dallas Mavericks officials and Brooklyn Nets officials on Monday as he begins to decide which team he will sign with, ESPN.com reported Sunday.

The Monday afternoon meeting with the Mavericks will be the first in-person discussion with a team interested in trying to sign Williams.

The Nets are scheduled to meet with Williams on Monday evening to go over their offer to Williams, who averaged 21.0 points and 8.7 assists for the Nets this past season.

The Nets can offer Williams a five-year deal worth nearly $100 million. The Mavericks can only counter with a four-year deal in the $75 million range.

Dallas will be represented on Monday by president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson, coach Rick Carlisle and former Mavericks franchise player Michael Finley, ESPN.com reported. Owner Mark Cuban is not expected to be present.
