Aldridge, Batum, Matthews. Aldridge has to improve the rebounding, but I love him. And not only is he a 1st option, but you can go thru him. That's a great trio. They have to draft a center. Either that or they can sign Chris Kaman, who I think would do so well next to Aldridge.



Their push next year will be serious if it's handled right and they have the right coach.

Keeping that pick and keeping the roster the way it was without a significant improvement(Wallace) garuantees Williams leaving. This gives him a solid team to work with now and hopefully in the future.

There is a really strong draft class this year so I really hope you're right and the pick doesn't come back to haunt us.

Huge risk by NJN. If Deron stays? I'd say whatever to the draft pick and assume by getting Gerald Wallace as one of many things it kept Deron in town. If Deron bolts? I laugh until my sides hurt.

Kentucky Boys, Unibrow and MKG are the only guys that are worth it for the Nets.



So, for ya'll sakes, hope that Portland doesn't end up with one of them lol. Other than that, I think Wallace is the better choice...and the only reason I'd like MKG so much is cuz he's from Elizabeth. Cuz Anthony Davis alongside Brook Lopez is so perfect it can't be explained...



BUT...if your record nets a top 3 pick, Portland can't use it...if not, you obviously can't get Davis. So...unless you want the hometown boy that bad, this is good.



The only real bad is that Wallace could have opted out and you could have offered him the same contract in the Summer, without losing the pick. But having Wallace is more likely than not better than the pick...I feel.



For Portland, the absolute opposite.

If it falls into the top 3, it remain's our's. After the top 3, which mean's 4 and up it will be there's if the pick is not a top 3 pick.

Proky just pay a couple Mills for a top 3 pick

Thats cool. I dont care for the Nets but I'd rather them land a top 3 pick than Charlotte, Wash, Sacremento.

We still have Houston's protected pick, if we can land Q-Miller and some that may be sleeper's, I wouldn't feel as bad.

You need to get a PF. Preferably one who can rebound.



If Houston doesn't make the playoffs, that means they have a top 14 pick tho. Isn't that as far as it's protected? Just warning ahead of time, because I don't think they're gonna make the playoffs.
