Building with youth...

I am all for Melo as I believe most are but you always need a backup plan.  My question is if the Nuggets are gonna flip Devin for Batum, why dont we just trade for Batum right now.  It would serve two purposes: 1)We would probably be in better position to trade for Melo and it could possibly put us in the driver seat in the trade talks with Denver for the first time 2) If the Melo deal falls through we would have a very promising young frontcourt of Batum, Favors and Lopez.  Not only that I believe you could do this and still keep our best draft picks.  If we didnt get Melo, then we can move on to working on our backcourt.  The next move I would push for would be O.J. Mayo.  I dont know how much he would cost us but Murphy's expiring contract and maybe two ones may get it done (speculation on my part).  If we could get Batum and Mayo without giving up Favors, Lopez and our 2011 first rounder, this could work as well.  Then we would just have to find our point guard in this years draft(easier said than done).  I may have my head in the clouds but I think this would be a viable option if we cant get Melo. Either way I think we need to remember that the Nets are in a good position if the Melo trade goes through or even if it doesnt.  Apologies if anyone has brought up this option for rebuilding in a past post.  Go NETS
