Multiple league sources confirm Nets-Kings talks about Deron Williams. All stress deal isn't close, and that Mason Plumlee is going nowhere.
Also, I really wish this hasn't broken on my way to JFK. The Nets have a way of having things happen right as I go AWOL.
"Untouchable" doesn't mean "top-20 player." it means "the only other healthy Nets center is Jerome Jordan."
Brooklyn Nets rank 26th in Pace on the season at 91.8. Kings 16th at 93.1.
source says no official deal was offered by Kings yet. Just talk. Nets major roadblock is they won't give up Mason Plumlee in any deal.
this is where trade exception could really help Nets. Can swallow contract up to 3.4 million that doesn't match D-Will's.
I get Kings wanting Rondo, but the carcass that is Deron Williams for that price tag? Doesn’t make much sense unless Nets sweeten pot.
Nobody the Kings would send back really has the kind of cache necessary to elevate the Nets' brand. Biggest obstacle in the deal IMO.
A cambio de Deron, los Kings enviarían a Nets a Darren Collison, Jason Thompson y Derrick Williams.
Deron Williams had an MRI today that revealed a low-grade right calf strain. He's listed as DOUBTFUL for tomorrow's game, the Nets announce.
Brooklyn Nets say Brook Lopez has begun light basketball activities. Lopez remains out for tomorrow's game and he will be reevaluated daily.
Nets say Brook Lopez is out and Deron Williams is doubtful for Sunday vs. Detroit, and that both will be evaluated daily until they return.
Nets say D-Will had an MRI today that revealed a low-grade right calf strain. He is listed as doubtful for Sunday.
Deron Williams doubtful vs DET on Sunday. MRI revealed low-grade right calf strain according to Nets
Nets say Brook Lopez has begun light basketball activities but is still OUT vs Det on Sunday. Will be reevaluated daily per Nets
For those saying it is because pieces don't fit: two years ago, Nets finished ninth in offense with Reggie Evans & Gerald Wallace starting.
And given what the Nets have, you'd have to think they'll get better on offense. And if they do, they should start winning more consistently
If the Nets were 13th in offense and 24th in defense, that would've made a lot more sense to me given the personnel they have to work with.
Through 25 games, Nets are tied for 13th in defensive efficiency, but are only 24th offensively, averaging less than a point per possession.
In a season full of confusing things about this Nets team, the most confusing thing to me? The fact they're better on defense than offense.
