they also need good shooters.
so send yi (a shooter), simmons (to match contracts), and the other dallas #1 pick we got in the kidd trade to the sixers for brand.
it solves a big roster and contract headache for the sixers and gives us a stud who should work far better in the nets offense than he did in the sixers fastbreak offense.
the negatives would be that it uses up simmons' $10 million that would have been free for 2010 and there's the question of whether brand will turn into an injury machine. but hey, okafur and wallace have big price tags too.
Now thats the best thing ive heard all day. are there any openings for GM? lol..
You know what i also think. I think that it would be a damn good idea if somehow the nets management/owners/etc can make a forum to where we the fans express our opinions, trade scenarios, and suggestions to these guys. Something that they can see and can respond to. Cause who else knows the nets better than the fans. Im not saying that we make the decisions, cause obviously that wont happen but some kind of 2 way feedback/communication between us nets fans and kiki...i think that would be kind of cool..
