I would make a serious move in FA. Obviously they are rebuilding and looking towards the future and in 3 years the Nets will be a top 4 team in the east, but i would make a little noise in July by picking up any one of these players in order:

1. Carlos Boozer (4)
2. Hedo Turkoglu (3 or 4)
3. Brandon Bass (4)
4. Linas Kleiza (3)
5. Drew Gooden (4)
6. Shawn Marion (3)
7. Ron Artest (3)

I would love the pickup of Boozer, But to save cap space, i would probably pick up a dude like either Kleiza and play him at the 3 or Bass and Gooden and play them at the 4
Kleiza set to make - 2,705,723
Bass - 826,269
Gooden - 1,484,029

Then i would get rid of or do a trade for Ager, Simmons, and Boone (especially Simmons to get rid of his hefty contract)

Now that i think about it, if we can shave simmons contract and pick up Boozer or Hedo, that'll be a good move i think.

Just tank it this season and get a high draft pick is what I vote for. Maybe trade off Devin if you get a nice piece.

Just leave the roster the way it is. No matter who the Nets sign, they are not a championship contender next season. Get the young guys some experience, get a nice draft pick, sign one of the big name FAs in 2010, and hope for the best.

Devin Harris, Coutney Lee, Brook Lopez is a solid core. Just need that superstar.

IS T-Will going to play SF or SG? I would assume SF since they have both LEE and CDR...

Devin's turning 27 next season. It may take us 2 or 3 years to actually rebuild this team.. I'm not sure if he's capable of leading when he's nearing 30. I wouldn't mind trading him for a young point guard prospect--like a Jonny Flynn (if he's available), Rondo, or maybe even Monta Ellis.

We probably won't though; I think we're really going to find out Devin's trade value this season but if the right deal came along right now I wouldn't pass it up.

At the very least, Terrance Williams will be entertaining.

Were not signing any big FAs this offseason. They're not going to take playing time away from the young players.

alston is a streetballer and a headcase.
granted, one of the best that's ever been able to hack the NBA, but still, a streetballer and a headcase.

for a young developing team it seems critical to have some veterans who will be on the court (sorry, eduardo) who can provide a positive influence, move the ball properly, take responsibility, teach and motivate a little bit, etc.

i knew that carter wasn't going to be a net forever, but i greatly valued the positive influence that he would have exerted on the young guys just by being around here the next couple of years. so not only is dooling a better backup and influence than alston is, but now that carter is gone, where does the on-court leadership come from?

harris? i'm not convinced. as much as he's accomplished, he needs to take steps forward in a number of different areas if he's going to be the PG of the future... or at least the next 5-6 years. therefore i would not be adverse to trading him for a very good PG prospect who can grow alongside of lopez, lee and whoever else for the next 10+ years.
