Cant be official until June 8th

I can see some teams in the Leborn Sweepstakes trying to rooster-block this deal


How could another team "rooster" block this? I doubt teams will protest.

Offer the Wizards something better than Hinrich that eats into their cap space and eliminates a landing spot for Hinrichs salary.

Better than Hinrich and the #17 pick?

Odd move for Wiz. Wall, Arenas and Hinrich?

Hinrich will be playing with another #1 franchise PG... from Rose to Wall.

What are we going to give them, Yi and #3?

If we give them our other 2 picks and Yi...maybe, but I still think 17 and Kirk is better if I were Washington.

At least now if they rid themselves of Arenas somehow (trade/buyout), they have a vet.

No way you give the 3rd pick to Washington just to rooster block a trade.

As expected:

PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Portland Trail Blazers fired general manager Kevin Pritchard after six seasons with the team, ending months of speculation that he had fallen out of favor with billionaire owner Paul Allen.

The Oregonian newspaper reported about an hour before the Thursday's NBA draft started that Pritchard had been dismissed. The team confirmed the firing at the conclusion of the night.

If Thorn is serious about thinking about leaving then Pritch needs to be hired yesterday. Seriously, get on the phone right now, offer him the #2 spot and the guaranteed GM job when Thorn leaves.

Good company you guys keep. From Simmons:

4:31: Our first four GMs on the clock: Ernie Grunfeld (Washington), Ed Stefanski (Philly), Rod Thorn (Jersey), David Kahn (Minnesota) … or, as they're better known, "Mount Duncemore."

I am now seriously worried that Thorn is going to do something stupid and trade Favors. I didn't sit through a 12 win season just to see our franchise PF traded for a guy we can just sign out right. It's gonets like this that can make the most passionate Nets fans say that the Kenyon Martin trade was worth it.

I was fine with the smokescreens going around, but seeing Thorn not back down from these statements post-draft has me upset. After all we've been through you'd think the management would be bending over backwards to hype this guy as the answer to last season, especially when he gets compared to Dwight Howard by Avery in multiple interviews.

So unless he comes out and confirms that Favors is here to stay, fire this gonets before Favors gets traded for Carlos Boozer. Let's get Pritchard on board.

FIRE THORN!
HOLLA!
In all seriousness, It would SUCK if he trades Favors. Like CPAW said, I'd walk over miles on top of broken glass to get Pritchard.

Nobody. It's a shock and a shame this is how it happened. In theory, we probably all overestimated how exciting our young core is.

Rudy going getting the max on the first day really threw everything off. I think we would have met with him immediately following the weekend after the big three meetings.

Really? You mean to tell me that nobody was predicting the Nets would fail to land a marque free agent?

Idk did you? By marquee do you mean just LBJ, Bosh or Wade? Or is that including Boozer, Lee, or Amar'e as well? Cus if it's the latter, I would have thought we would have landed one of those three. I know Lee is still in play but apparently if the Knicks don't land LeBron he's gonna go to GS in a S&T and probably get that 6th year he wants.

Amare, Joe Johnson and Boozer where second tier marquee free agents. Lee and Gay are simply guys that were going to get overpaid.

Do you just like to complain or?.....

Boozer is worth the max to us now?

Amare is worth $100M w/ his health concerns when theres no shot at a title?

Joe Johnson at 30 years old does what for us? Even though we couldnt get him b/c we couldnt pay him $125M
