To say they are "still not coming close to the playoffs" shows that you do not know much about NBA basketball. Especially playing in the Eastern Conference; I believe the Nets will make it. If they don't, they will be in the hunt late in the season for sure.


I'd like to think I know a lot about the NBA. The East definitely isn't very strong after the top 5 or 6 so anything is possible, but my opinion stands that the Nets won't be in the playoffs and it won't be very close at the end of the year. I wish them well though.

Nets have dropped 4 straight, but its hard to really expect much when 3 of those games were against conference powerhouses Miami and Orlando. That loss to the Bobcats earlier in the week was the killer, especially considering they were up 8 to 10 points with a few minutes left.

The New Jersey Nets agreed to trade Terrence Williams to the Houston Rockets in a three-way deal that will land them Los Angeles Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic and a pair of first-round draft picks, sources confirmed to ESPN.com.

The acquisition of the two first-round picks now gives the Nets a total of five first-rounders over the next two seasons. Aside from their own 2011 and 2012 firsts, New Jersey also has the Golden State Warriors' lottery-protected 2011 first-round pick, which was acquired in the Marcus Williams trade back in 2008.

I know nothing when it comes to basketball but this has to be good for the Nets...get more picks, get rid of a head ache that seemed like he was no longer in their long term plans, and get the guy who is engaged to Sharapova haha!

T-Will has a ton of talent. Hes just a major headcase and the Nets got sick of him.

Doesn't sound like a great deal though, unless they can spin some of these newly acquired assets off for Carmelo Anthony or some other big name.

Doesn't Anthony only want to play for the Knicks?

That's what I've read. If you can't spin off those picks plus the players (Favors+), it makes this T-Will deal look pretty bleh.

TWill was never gonna play, so this seems like a pretty decent return. You can never have too many draft picks.

If I remember correctly, Melo said he will only sign an extension with the Knicks, so he wouldn't necessarily be opposed to just playing this season with NJ. It's the Nets that don't want him unless he signs the extension. Who can blame them, they're not exactly gonna win the championship this year.

Rumors are that Carmelo just got traded to the Nets

Per Denver ABC Twitter

http://twitter.com/#!/DenverChannel/status/14906028298608640

Hope its true. Got great seats for Thursday night and I imagine if they get a deal done quick (needs to sign long term before its done apparently) it may be his debut lol

More news:

http://nbcsports.msn...ts-player_news/

Denver's Channel 7 kicked off an Internet firestorm when they reported that the Nuggets and Nets "agreed to terms" on a trade for Carmelo Anthony, but those reports have been thoroughly denied by the Nuggets and Anthony, and most reputable NBA insiders are saying there is no such deal in place.

Rotoworld contacted Channel 7 for comment and they stood by their report, so it will be interesting to see how they wiggle out of this one. Chances are they won't, and even if there was the framework of a deal discussed, the key piece is Melo's acceptance of an extension which is far from a done deal. Melo will be in uniform when the Nuggets play the Spurs on Thursday.

Interesting... I'm sure its just bad reporting, but would definitely love it if it happened. That would show the new ownership and management actually cares about winning.

Or at least just getting asses in the seats.

I was hoping it was happening just because Im going on Thursday and the game is not very tantalizing at the moment since Wall probably isnt even going to play. It'd have been sweet if it was Melo's NJ debut.
