Daily Link: Nets Made Play for Scola, But…

In their neverending search for a PF, the Houston Chronicle reports that the Nets were prepared to make a pretty significant offer to restricted free agent Luis Scola, forcing the Rockets to make a a five-year, $47 million offer that Scola quickly accepted.

Scola is a nice player, but according to the article, the Nets were going to go 5/$55M for the guy, which sounds steep considering the team is just reportedly looking for someone to hold down the fort until Derrick Favors is ready.
