Hi! This is a nets fan who wants to get an opinion about their two recent trade activities to anyone who cares.
The Nets have been active with the Warriors in pursuit of the disgruntled Al Harrington and the SG Marco Bellinelli; the Warriors are interested in Nets' centers Josh Boone and Sean Williams.
I feel that if this is a straight up two for two trade, the Nets have to take it. This would put the Nets at a small lineup, because Harrington is undersized at Center, but it gives them a more reliable third scoring option than Yi Jianlian. Marco Bellinelli would make a great backup to VC considering he is shooting .667 from the 3-point line as of November 17, which would take pressure of the injured rookie Chris Douglas-Roberts. The Nets wouldn't be losing much considering they would get a replacement for Boone, and Williams is not needed because the Nets already have many frontcourt players. They would be losing yound talent to attract Lebron, but I think Lebron would much rather prefer Harrington.
The second trade is not as direct, it is more an idea. The Cavs might decide to pursue Vince Carter this year. You can read the details on Fan nations' great Truth and Rumours section but here is my opinion.
Dumping VC and his contract is a major need for the Nets, but the problem with this idea is that who would the Cavs offer for him?? They won't give away Zyrdunas Ilgauskas or Mo Williams or Lebron. Who else is useful on that team?
Think about this. More Nets news and other sports news to come from me.
