The Nets need another big man to play alongside Brook Lopez for the next few years, and the Suns' Amar'e Stoudemire seems like a pretty good candidate. Stoudemire can opt out of the final year of his contract and become a free agent this summer, and he continues to say good things about the Nets. "I think this franchise is definitely going to turn things around here soon. New ownership is coming in. They're looking to move to Brooklyn. All that is a factor," Stoudemire said Wednesday.
Meanwhile, ESPN's Ric Bucher reports that the Nets may make an offer to the Knicks' David Lee early in the free agency period, before New York is ready to deal with him. And if the Knicks don't want to let Lee go, they would need to use some of the cap space they have reserved for other free agents they desire.
