Wow,
this shocked me.

Love this deal for both teams.

Utah knew they were headed for a similar headache to denver so they got out in front of the mess.
NJ is going to get a lot better now. I imagine they will add a legit free agent to the mix next year.

Until the Nets sign Deron to a contract. This trade is a epic fail for NJ...

I was just thinking that. A year from now whats stopping D-Will from walking or demanding that he wants to play elsewhere?

They have 2 years to build a winner.
They are obviously serious about doing that based on their pursuit of Melo and acquisition of dwil.

I definitely like their prospects a lot better than ours.

They have 1 year to build a winner, not 2. This season is 2/3rds of the way done with the trade deadline coming up tomorrow and he has a player option for the 2012-2013 season which if Amar'e proved anything, he could very easily cut it and walk to play for NY or some other team with better championship prospects and/or more money. Sure, i'd rather have D-Will than not have him, but having better prospects than ours isn't saying much. They definitely took a gamble here.

we'll see.

I think Brooklyn will be a relevant team in the new NBA.
The collective bargaining agreement will also help them resign him.

They are one significant player away from competing.

Heres hoping we get Kyrie so Deron doesn't blow by Calderon every game next season.

Good move for the Nets. However this can blow up in their face later on if they don't have a winning team. They have to add another piece to the puzzle. But they are on the right track.

It looks like the East has the most talent as compared to the West. The best point guards are now all in the East in Rose, Rondo, and Williams.

Devin Harris + a little playing time for Troy Murphy should get the Nets something good in return maybe a top 20 player in the league.

Competing for what though? Can you name one available player (or someone who will be available over the next 2 seasons) that makes them a championship contender?

Did you think deron williams was going to be traded today?

They also have cap space and Murphy's expiring contract.
They can go after Jason Richardson, Zach Randolf or David West in the offseason.
Any of those 3 will make them a threat next year.
They could be a player for the Dwight Howard sweepstakes the following year.
Can you imagine a front court of howard and Lopez

There was talk of Rip Hamilton who would help.


There are options.

Brooklyn is a sellable idea, much more so than toronto.

I'd take Toronto over Brooklyn. Much better market. Brooklyn is too close to the Knicks IMO.
