2013 Offseason
 
This has been the most successful offseason for us in years.

Hire Jason Kidd as head coach w/ L. Frank, R. Rodgers, E. Hughes.

Draft Mason Plumlee at #22 pick

Trade Brooks, Humphries, Jospeh, Wallace, Bogans (S&T), and 3 first round picks for Pierce, Garnett, and Terry.

Sign Kyle Korver "Pretty much in the bag"
Quote:

Marc Stein @ESPNSteinLine

Says one rival GM with interest in one of this summer's most coveted shooters: "Hearing Korver to Brooklyn is in the bag"

For the first time, our Nets team is the attractive team that all the vets want to go to. Feels good man:D

What else do you guys think we need to do? I think resigning Blatche is a must. It'll make our bench so much better if he comes back. Also this is probably wishful thinking but adding someone like Tony Allen would make us a very tough team to beat. We're lacking perimeter defenders and he is one of the best.

iím glad we held on to evans (we did, right?) so to maintain one rebounding specialist.

iím disappointed brooks was lost, as we keep losing his type (t-will, CDR) to.... immaturity or whatever. given how his big weakness was defense, it would have been quite cool to see what big ticket would have been able to do with him.

oh pls oh pls let blatche re-sign. heís such an incredible value for the money and should take a big load off garnettís wear-and-tear.

plumlee- i didnít realise what an athletic deep post guy he was. very cool to have two centers with traditional C skills, but also one of them a slow, skilled shooter and th3 other a quick rebounding / putback type of guy. nice set of looks to challenge other teams with, particularly if blatche comes back.

terry- i really wonder what the guy has left at this point. well, there was bound to be a shaky link in the chain.

anyway, this yearís team feels a lot more positive to me than last yearís team. most fans were sold on the 2012 nets being an allstar team that could somehow contend with miami. to me it was more a highly-flawed, mismatched collection of parts that would make the playoffs and then flame out. i couldnít understand why everyone seemed to be so optimistic, so i tried to keep dampening my pessimism. that combination was deadly over the course of the season. by the end i wasnít even following the team.

this year is so much different, itís almost a reverse. there are flaws everywhere, but theyíre pretty much all on the surface this time. underneath them there is much more character and real potential... the possibility of actually going somewhere interesting and being truly fascinating to watch.

night and day.

Honestly we don't know who's involved in the trade until July 12. First it was Toko in the deal, then it was MarShon, now its Reggie. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

And also I feel like MarShon is different from T-Will and CDR. MarShon never spoke out against his team mates or the coaches. He was visibly upset for not playing most this season but I don't recall him ever going on Twitter and complaining to the world. I'm just happy that he landed on a rebuilding team where he'll get plenty of shots and show the world he can play. Good luck to him, he was one of my favorite Nets the last 2 seasons.

i agree, he was definitely more mature than those two. i guess it's more the athleticism, scoring ability and x-factor that made me lump them together. plus the gun that some guy was holding against my head!

but it's a shame... players like marshon could have been our homegrown joe johnsons or jason terrys, etc. because it gives me more satisfaction to see a player who came up through the team than an overpriced one who came via trade or FA. it's cool to learn their stories and watch them evolve... not just on the court, but as people.

Totally agree. That's why everyone loves Brook, we drafted him and he's the only player left from that 12-70 year. The way the league is today, he'll probably end up getting traded later in his career but I hope he stays a Net for the majority of his career. Maybe get his number retired one day. He would be our Kobe, Dirk, Timmy D (players that stayed on one team for their whole career).

Also its sad that Pierce didn't get to stay on the C's and retire but I ain't complaining. :D

Stupid Bucks trying to steal Korver...
:facepalm

We need Kirilenko now that Korver is likely gone, or its season over.

I feel Ty Taylor should get the back up PG role, hes looked good when he played for us, remember the game against the Pacers without D-Will? Taylor lead us in OT to beat them, he is our quickest and for a small guy our most athletic player.

There's a reason we are looked at as a team with no young talent, but lets change that and and give him minutes

He played really good for Kansas and went to the Championship game, obviously the best player their was T-Rob but their starting PG was Taylor.

I heard Coach Kidd will be giving him a chance to prove himself in the summer league. He still needs to learn how to limit his TOs and pass the ball like a natural PG. I agree with you totally I want Ty to be our backup but we should still sign a PG because its always safe to carry 3.

Korver resigns with ATL. Damn, Marc Stein's tweet got me all excited.

Damn these shitty Bucks and Hawks do know how to mess up with our plans. There aint many good FAs left, I hope Billy King does not lose his calmness to sign any stupid euroleague players for Mini-MLE. If so he should be fired immediately.
:facepalm

We might be going with Bogdanovic. I don't know much about him cept hes a shooter but after how Mirza played last season, I don't know if I want another euroleague star that needs time to develop. We need someone who can contribute right away.

Theres also Delfino who I wouldn't mind. What do you guys think of Matt Barnes? He brings defense off the bench which we need but he shot 34% from three last season.

Please no Euroleague scrubs, Billy King should be fired if he uses Mini-MLE on those trash.

barnes only shot 34%? i think he just needs another tattoo. thatís the problem. and prokhy can afford one with gold ink, so i see no issue here.

nothing to see, here. move along!

holy hand grenade... AK47 passed up big money with minny to come play for the nets for the mini-MLE... making prokhy pay a tonne of penalty money. nets payroll blowing the knicks out of the water but prokhes dun care! :D

only problem... we never did get our 3ball specialist did we? hope this doesn’t come back to haunt us when the enemy defense needs to be stretched to the fullest.

and blatche passed up a lot of extra money to re sign. sweet.
