Disappointed With What They Didn't Get; Happy With What They Did

Stefan Bondy writes the Nets are a team "more in flux than in focus" while Al Iannazzone details an off-season of disappointments, failing to land their top coaching candidates, their top draft choice, their top free agents, etc.

Still, Nets seem happy enough with what they have did get.  The four free agents they've signed are all energy players and better than the role players they had last season and, of course, they did get the new owner they wanted. 

Now the challenges are that gap at power forward and leadership, which will have to come from Avery Johnson and whoever replaces Rod Thorn.  Fred Kerber says they're considering Louis Amundson, the journeyman to fill in til Derrick Favors is ready, and Dave D'Alessandro reports they'd consider trading Terrence Williams and picks for a stud. Yes, they did talk to Minnesota about Al Jefferson.

But all that will be handled by the new president of basketball operations and GM. While Billy King (who fired three coaches in Philly, Dave D reminds us) and Kevin Pritchard (who was fired by a multi-billionaire last month) are the names mentioned for the big job, only Bobby Marks as GM seems set.  And one Nets insider suggests that Pritchard is not on the Nets' radar.
