I know it sucks for Nets fans, and I hate to see someone injured, but it's great news for our draft pick. Deron's wrist has hampered him since January, and his shot has looked pretty bad. Could Devin Harris right now be equal to Deron in production? Obviously a healthy Deron is a ton better, but Devin and Deron could be equal in production, maybe the trade didn't hurt us all that bad this year.
It also gives Sundiata Gaines more playing time if Deron does get shut down.
I was like wow must be serious then I realized the season is almost over. haha...
But the trade did hurt you IMO. You see the Nets even with an unhealthy Deron beating people...
But yeah you guys are gonna reap the true benefits of the trade with that draft pick. Hopefully it's a good one.

I like his winner's mentality, but he should save it for next season. Hopefully by then, we'll add some pieces and actually be a legit playoff team. Next season, I want no lingering or nagging injuries. I want him 100% and ready to go.
Agreed, the playoffs were a long shot. Better to have him completely healthy next year then win a couple more games this year but have him make the injury worse.
