The big blockbusters have not done much for the Nets. So now General Manager Billy King is looking to improve from within. Just don’t rule out another trade. Keeping Brook Lopez is the priority, while moving Deron Williams and Joe Johnson could be options if King decides to break up the Nets’ core. “Joe may have summed it up best,” King said Wednesday. “It may be the group, just together — maybe it’s time to maybe split it up, or maybe add to it to help them. So we’ll look to add to complement them, to make them better. Or do you look to maybe move a piece to add some other pieces to it?” New York Times

King also expressed a desire to bring back Alan Anderson, whom he called “Mr. Reliable,” and said the team will extend a qualifying offer to Mirza Teletovic to make him a restricted free agent. But with limited ways to improve this summer and another full year remaining until the Nets have the salary cap space to make significant changes, King has his work cut out for him. “It’s really incumbent on us, when you don’t have those picks, to be creative and come up with other ways to do it,” King said. “That’s a challenge, but it’s doable.” New York Post

First and foremost, the GM said he doesn't plan on shelling out future assets for short-term quick-fixes. Not that they really have any to offer, but still. "I don't expect us to be trading any (of the team's future picks)," King said. "We've done that." NetsDaily
