Player Addition News Thread
 
Some stuff my old boss emailed me:

Quote:

Tim Thomas, who helped Phoenix get to the Western Conference finals, may have to look for a new address this summer, but it won't be in New Jersey. The 6'-10" forward told the Arizona Republic that he and his wife have decided against it because it would be "too much" with both being natives of the Garden State. Prior to signing with Phoenix, Thomas had made a number of statements to local media talking about how great it would be to return home.

Quote:

Marc Cornstein, the agent for Mile Ilic, expects his client to be bought out of his contract with FMP in Serbia in the next several weeks and in a New Jersey Nets ' uniform by training camp, according to a report published by North Jersey.

The 7-foot-2 Ilic was the Nets' second-round pick last year.

"I think if the Nets want him here he'll be here and every indication I've gotten is the Nets want him here," Cornstein said. "I do believe [the buyout] is something that will happen shortly. I think it will be manageable.

"I would be disappointed at this stage if Ilic was not a Net come October."

Jay Williams

As many of you have probably read, former Duke standout Jay Williams is tentatively scheduled for a workout with the Nets on Saturday, June 17. Williams was born in Plainfield, N.J. and was the second overall pick of the Chicago Bulls in 2002. He has been out of the NBA since suffering an injury in a motorcycle accident three years ago.

We will put him through a normal workout, which will likely include head-to-head game action.

Feel free to add anything you guys find. I'm excited for this off season.

I really hope the Nets get Jay Williams.

If they can use their 2 first rounders and trade up for Hilton Armstrong, maybe Sheldan Williams, they'd be in business...

wang,

We should sign Jay Williams to a 1-year contract and see if he's in playing shape. As for Thomas, I'm glad he's not coming over.

Understood. But till those Verizon Wireless ads stop interfering with my reading, then I don't visit the main site much. Whats up with that? The thing just hovers and doesn't go away. Can't find the exit out button either.

if we sign him to a 1 year deal an dhe goes out and has a good year, then he'll ask for more money or might just leave and start somewhere else. We should sign him 3 years, 6 million about IMO

What if he has a bad year? Besides, he doesn't seem like the kind of guy to do that. He's from Jersey, too.

Re:
 
give him a Kwame type deal


first year or two guaranteed. then give him a team option.




if Ilic is anything like Krstic...

If he has a bad year it's about 3 million dollars for 2 years, not a huge deal...

Re:
 
from a fan's perspective it may not seem like much, but the Nets organization is actually losing money.

Ratner will not approve unless Thorn makes sure that Williams can play at a decent level.

wang4three 06-09-2006 11:32 PM

man i need to read the entire article for Illic:
Quote:

Ilic, 21, is said to be a better athlete than Nenad Krstic, but needs to work on his body and game. The Nets want Ilic here so he can practice with them and work with their strength and conditioning staff. He may come over in the next few weeks to work out.

Awesome.

Also from the article:

Quote:

Nets' brass is at the Orlando pre-draft camp this week. The Nets own picks 22 and 23 in the first round, but are trying to deal them to move up or package one with a player for a veteran.

Re:
 
Rod Thorn is the man he'll get somethin gdone.

ZHAKIDD532 06-10-2006 09:40 AM

^he does have a good resume, it'll happen

kidd
carter
jefferson
krstic
martin
and a very long time ago, the one to originally draft MJ...

funkylikemonkey 06-12-2006 09:45 PM

Unless we were under the cap, we can't just trade draft picks for Martin so we'd have to give up one of our big name players.
