Deron Williams tweets picture of himself signing Nets contract

Deron Williams announced his official signing with the Brooklyn Nets the way any modern athlete does it these days— by tweeting.

Williams didn't only tweet the news of his long-awaited deal, he sent a picture of himself actually signing the five-year, nearly $100 million contract on his iPad along with this message:

"Officially a Brooklyn Net!  Signed my contract on an iPad Just thank God for this wonderful Opportunity #HelloBrooklyn"

Williams was able to sign with the Nets early Wednesday morning after the free agent moratorium ended at 12:01 a.m..

The All-Star point guard later released this statement to his fans: "I am really excited to be able to officially say that Brooklyn is home.  It's an incredible time to play in Brooklyn and be a part of this organization."

The Nets are also expected to make a few more announcements in the coming days.  No word on if they'll be tweeting.
