Assuming the Nuggets goes into their 2010-11 season with Melo still on the team, maybe that will give other teams a chance to exam the talent already on their team. In the Nets case, maybe they could catch "lightning in the bottle" with Travis Outlaw. He has shown some promise in the past, despite being a career bench player. If he can demostrate (as a starter) something similar to what he has shown a few years ago when he was averaging 13 PPG off the bench, then there's no reason to believe that he can't average a little over that total as a starter. Heck, he could end up averaging 15-17 PPG since there will likely be alot of double-teams to both Harris and Lopez.
Guys like Outlaw, Morrow/Williams and Murphy/Favors could end up having career years if they can take advantage of the opportunities. I'd be really interested to see how this current roster pans out. If things don't work out and Melo becomes available during the trade deadline, only then should the Nets make a move for him. Let's see what Melo and the Nuggets decide to do, though.
