According to league sources, CSN Bay Area is learning that a proposed trade sending Darren Collison, Jason Thompson and Derrick Williams from the Kings to the Nets for Deron Williams may not fly.
The deal was first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
A hiccup in the trade is Sacramento coveting Mason Plumlee, who is not part of the deal as currently proposed.

Plumlee would upgrade the Kings at the power forward spot forming an imposing frontcourt along with DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay. All three were teammates on Team USA that captured the FIBA World Cup in Spain this offseason.
The 22nd overall pick in the 2013 draft by the Nets, Plumlee’s strengths include his athleticism, rebounding, interior defense and ability to run the floor.
The former Duke Blue Devil could also provide backup minutes at center behind Cousins and is averaging 7.6 points and 5.8 rebounds in 18.3 minutes per night for Brooklyn.
The Kings are high on point guard Darren Collison, who is averaging 15.6 points and 6.1 assists per game after signing with Sacramento as a free agent during the off-season.
A three-time NBA All Star, Deron Williams is currently averaging 15.6 and 6.8 assists per game for the underachieving Nets.
Williams is due $21 million next season and $22.3 million in 2016-17.
Thompson has played for six different coaches for the Kings after being drafted by them in 2008.
The former Rider product has started all 26 games this season at the power forward position averaging 5.5 points and 6.8 rebounds per game.
Derrick Williams has been inconsistent and has not lived up to expectations after being selected with the number two pick by Minnesota in the 2011 draft.
Off the bench, the Arizona product is averaging 6.5 points and 2.1 rebounds per game for Sacramento.
