Draft and Trades
It looks like Thorn will be doing a mini retool around Devin Harris. They have some pieces that are worth a pretty penny along with 2 first rounders with one of them being a lottery pick, things could turn around quite fast for the Nets.
1. Send Jefferson and Sean Williams to the Clippers for Elton Brand. Brand is 29 years old and still has a few years left of basketball in him. He'll be in his last year, so if he doesn't pan out, the Nets can reap the rewards of $16.5M shed from their cap to go after a big free agent target. When healthy, which I think this year he will be, Brand is in the top 3 of power forwards in the league.
2. Send Vince Carter along with the #21st pick to the Suns for Boris Diaw, Leandhro Barbosa and the 48th pick. Carter is 31 years old and is slowing down. He still has 4 years left on a pretty hefty salary. This would be the time to move him to a team looking for veteran help to get them over the hump which Phoenix is.
3. Draft Picks
#10 = Brandan Rush - 6'6 - SG/SF - Kansas
#48 = Richard Hendrix - 6'9 - PF - Alabama
PG Harris - Williams
SG Rush - Ager
SF Diaw - Hassell
PF Brand - Hendrix
C Kristic - Boone
May take a few more free agent signings to add some more depth and with them under the cap, they can get a few good ones.
