no easy answer.
based on his season with the Kings, it showed he has good offense, even with a broken jaw.
however, his defense was suspect, which was why he was a bench player even on the Kings. I mean KENNY THOMAS starts over him. that tells you something.
anyway, Abdur Rahim would be IDEAL For the Nets as a sixth man because he would bring a scoring punch.
however, had the NEts gotten him, he would have been a starter, which would have put Krstic in some trouble, because there was no way COllins sits since Frank likes his defense.
all in all, this was a judgment call as the Nets wanted to avoid paying salary to an injured player like Alonzo Mournign and DIkembe Mutumbo.
i mean you may think crossin teh salary cap is no big deal after what the Knicks have managed to do
but remember, Bruce Ratner's Forest City Development owns most of the shares and because the NEts franchise is losing money, the board of directors does not want to needlessly waste money.
so in hindsight, everything has worked out, but in a perfect world, if Abdur Rahim were 100% healthy and came off the bench for 12/5 then the Nets would be contenders... seriously..
