Default Breaking News- Nets waive stromile swift, now after luther head!

http://www.netsdaily.com/?p=7506

The Nets announced late Sunday night that they have waived Stromile Swift. Dealing with injuries early in the season and then his mother’s illness and subsequent death, Swift played just six games this season and hadn’t seen action since December 10. His contract was set to expire at the end of the season. Before Sunday’s game, Lawrence Frank indicated that Swift was close to being back on the active roster.

Mark Bartelstein, agent for combo guard Luther Head, says the Nets are among “about a dozen” teams who’ve called about his client. “Kiki (Vandeweghe) just left a message,” Bartelstein said Sunday. Hours later, the Nets cleared a roster spot by waiving Stromile Swift. Head had been waived by the Rockets Saturday, permitting him to play in the post-season. The 6′3″ 26-year-old has an 8.8 ppg career average.

i must confess that i don't understand sticking by him and investing a roster spot in him the whole time he was dealing with his mother's illness only to release him now.

i mean, obviously he's being released now so he has a chance to catch on with a playoff contender, but if i was him i would have wanted to stay in a system i knew and with a group of guys who had stuck by me.

OTOH, with dooling ailing i would welcome another veteran guard to help spell carter and harris.

Wasnt he a expirer anyway?
I dont see the logic in this.

Good luck to Stromile though, still could contribute to a team in need for a big man IMO.

For an extra roster spot...

Now we should get either head or douby...
I'd prefer head for his shooting touch...

I've said it many times, if the Nets want to compete for that 8th and final playoff spot they need a consistent three point and mid range shooter.

We have many 3 pt shooters in Hayes, Simmons, Yi, Dooling etc.
What we need is a PF that bangs bodies down low. Then we would be dangerous.

Sounds like the Nets probably won't add Luther Head. They want to but probably won't, according to two NJ papers
