Default Nets sign Jay Williams

I dunno to much about this guy but I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. This means less time for Marcus. What do you guys think?

it doesn't necessarily mean less time for marcus.

the most important thing is for marcus and jay to get a lot of scrimmage time, learn the system and get comfortable with their teammates. almost certainly one of them will show that they have mastered that faster than the other and that will be the one who will get the ongoing backup PG time. and that's not a bad thing for the 'loser'- it means he will get more of what he needs, which is more scrimmage time.

win-win situation.

Jay is a good guard. Playing for the Bulls him and Jamal Crawford were good together. I think if he had not injured himself, him and Kirk would be the PG"s on the Buuls now. But Pax might have traded him (Jay).

You can never be too deep, especially at a good price. Amazing pickup...

They were asking on the Miami board would the heat win it all again.

Funny thing is, they have the Nets winning it all in a few magazines (Sporting News, CBS, etc.)

Default re:

Nets have the core to winning it all.


they say they dont have big men.


having a Kevin Garnett would propel this team into instant contender.

but Collins, Krstic, Robinson play a good tag team and although they don't put up a stellar number of points, they make due and play hard team defense.

Boone should bolster the defense.


the main production comes from the BIG three and the bench.

Nets had very good defense from trapping and help defense (as reflected in their 91PPG allowed) but their 3 point defense was suspect (because they pack the lanes more often)


however, the bench was horrible.

when Lamond Murray is your first option off the bench you konw you are in trouble.

^Murray wasn't bad for us, but no doubt the bench will be better this year, with contributions from their young players.

The help defense is big, that is one of Krstic's strong points no doubt, anyone can see he gets those blocks all day long...

Who do you guys think will backup Jefferson? Nachbar supposedly averaged 9 or 10 points with Slovenia's team in the offseason. Can Wright handle the 3 spot over nachbar?

Can either Marcus or Jay play the 2?

maybe for spots when the Nets go small, Will or Jay can play some 2, but they are both too small, and Will's jumper is suspect.



a possibility might be shift Carter to the 3, have Wright play the 2 whenever a rotation is needed.

two and three are the most interchangeable positions of all. there will be no problem for the nets backing up the two spot.

other than the 'usual backup SG', you could see any of the PG's to any of the SF's backing up carter depending on who the matchups are.
