The Billion Dollar Question: Now What?

NBA.com's John Schuhmann takes a look at what will happen with the Nets franchise now that they've avoided the ignominy of having the NBA's worst record ever.  As Schuhmann asks, "So now what?"

Some questions were answered Sunday during the "60 Minutes" interview of Mikhail Prokhorov. There's little doubt he's willing to spend.  Another big one will be answered May 18 when ping pong balls fall. 

But Schuhmann goes through a list of other, less appreciated, changes that could take place when Prokhorov takes over.  With more money, the Nets could beef up their scouting and get back to doing statistical analysis. Both suffered in this year's cost-cutting. More experienced assistants could also come with a bigger budget.
