Least Likely13) Jarrett Jack
The funny thing about this is that now might be a time to sell high on Jack, who's played well over his head for the past two months. But with the Nets actively looking to shed Deron Williams and Jack morphing into 90% of the on-court reason to watch the Nets these days, there's no chance the Nets will take a risk on dealing Jack and being left with no one but Darius Morris to run the point for 48 minutes. It's purely pragmatic.
It’s that time of year again, where 90% of the NBA collectively takes a week off to rest and general managers feel the pressure to make bad decisions based on an arbitrary end-date to make trades with other NBA teams. It’s truly the best time of year, particularly for a team like the Nets, who feast on trade rumors like insatiable sharks circling chum even when the team is performing well.
The Nets have eight days to construct a deal, so we’re doing some predictions: ranking Nets players from least to most likely to get traded. This isn’t a “trade value” ranking, because value to the Nets & value to the league could be wildly disparate, but a “trade likelihood” ranking, as in: “who’s most likely to get wrapped up in a deal sending them away?
We’re also not including Mirza Teletovic on this list, for obvious reasons. Enjoy — and let us know what you think.
