In fact, a pair of recent reports have cast doubt on whether Hollins and Johnson will still be with the team when the snow subsides. The Nets’ brass is prepared to “evaluate” Hollins, according to a report from ESPN. Johnson, meanwhile, was being discussed in trade talks with the Charlotte Hornets, who were offering a package including Brooklyn native Lance Stephenson, swingman Gerald Henderson and forward Marvin Williams, according to a report from Yahoo Sports. But according to a source with knowledge of the Nets’ thinking, the report about Hollins was untrue and the trade talks with the Hornets had ended. Still, the two teams could reignite negotiations closer to the Feb. 19 trade deadline. In fact, the Hornets have discussed sending Stephenson to Brooklyn no fewer than three times since signing him to a three-year, $27 million deal last summer, according to the source.

There's no sugarcoating it: It's a bad list where star power is pretty much non-existent. Gerald Wallace, the only All-Star in franchise history, goes to No. 1.
