Vince Carter, Devin Harris, Keyon Dooling, and Brook Lopez are untouchable. Eduardo Najera, Trenton Hassel (and Dooling) are good defenders and need to help lead the other players with that defensive mentality. Bobby Simmons and Jarvis Hayes have a lot in them and Bobby needs to get back to the MIP player he once was, and Hayes should continue to work cause he can be really good. Ryan Anderson and CDR need to contiue to develop. If they work hard in the summer they can have a major impact. Yi is the X factor for the nets. Can he get his confidence up, can he get stronger and tougher in the paint. If he can develop as a strong PF he's the next Yao Ming.
Sean Williams, Josh Boone, Maurice Ager...Have potential, but what are they doing really? Ups and Downs. Can they help the team ?
Jamario Moon, Sergio Rodriquez, Charlie Villanueva could be available. Can we pick up one of these guys. What about Travis Outlaw?
