Williams suffered toe injury this season.
He now sits fourth on the team's all-time assist leaders list with 4,003, and also features in the top 10 for points, minutes played, three-pointers made, offensive rating and win shares for the team.
A deal with the Dallas Mavericks isn't considered imminent, however.
Williams would have to give his consent to any trade, but he lives in Utah during the off-season.
A number of names had been linked in reports and rumors this week to deals involving the Jazz, and the team has a bevy of salary cap space, draft picks and point guards that could have been moved, but it ultimately stood pat.

With a totally new set of aero regulations, the scope is very much there for any team to get it badly right or wrong. Joining Hulkenberg will be Jolyon Palmer, starting his second season with the Enstone racers.
To some surprise, it was a quiet deadline for the Utah Jazz. However, the Nets were unable to have any real success, making the playoffs three times and only making it past the first round once.
Now stationed on a Dallas Mavericks team headed toward the lottery, the 32-year-old Williams still functions as a starter, averaging almost 30 minutes per game. At 22-34 on the season, this makes ideal sense.
The Mavs are open to parting with both D-Will and center Andrew Bogut ahead of Thursday's trade deadline.
Deron Williams teamed up with former All-Star power forward Carlos Boozer and together made the Utah Jazz a force to be reckoned with in the Western Conference. Barea to the Mavs lineup.
The Jazz also have George Hill and Dante Exum on their depth chart at point guard. The Jazz now average 100.2 points per game, placing them 28th in the league. They aren't the All-Star numbers that he had with the Utah Jazz, but he continues to post respectable stats for a veteran point guard. According to Lowe, the Jazz have tested the trade market for power forward Derrick Favors over the past few weeks, but he does not know if they were really considering moving him. It might not take a lot to get him from the Dallas Mavericks, as Utah could likely get away with just offering a future first-round draft pick.
