Around the Nets Tuesday: Amazing
The Brooklyn Nets have reportedly put together a package worth upwards of $30 million for Gerald Wallace.
Jason Kidd would welcome an opportunity to end in a Brooklyn Nets uniform... or a New York Knicks one: "'That would be a lot of fun, to be able to help a young player like that,' Kidd said of Lin. '"He has all the tools. We saw that before he got hurt. To help him understand it’s a long season, to pace yourself, and that he’s got to work extremely hard. Also, to share the things that help me be successful and help him be a better player.'"
After he sat a full season following surgery for an aortic aneurysm, could the Brooklyn Nets be interested in Jeff Green?
Dwight Howard and Carmelo Anthony are the lead NBA players starring in the Chinese sci-fi film "Amazing," a film presumably about the lengths players go to avoid playing in New Jersey.
Sports economist Dave Berri lists Deron Williams as the ninth-most overpaid player in the NBA. I should note that I've never personally agreed with Berri's methods, and from a broad view, his conclusion is understandable; the Nets paid Williams upwards of $16 million to lead a 22-44 team. What that analysis doesn't cover is the nuanced effect from his teammates, and why a point guard on an injury-decimated, sloppily constructed team might have such an uphill battle to climb.
MarShon Brooks: looking to get stronger.
Tim Bontemps wants you to know that it's okay we haven't heard much on the Nets lately: it's merely the quiet before the storm.
