If Deron won't commit long term, why should the team commit long term on supporting players?
Does that make any sense?
It's kinda like buying furniture for an apartment before signing the lease. Make sure you have the apartment first! Otherwise you might be stuck with furniture you don't want!
I think that it would be shrewd of the nets management to lock up your foundation players (superstars- ie D-12, DWILL) before you invest big money / long term contracts in supporting players (ie, Nene, Tyson Chandler, and the rest of the top free agents in the 2011 class)
I'd much prefer to see them fill out their roster with less expensive players through free agency, amnesty signings and trading - until they know for certain what direction they are going in.
What do you guys think?
If you disagree, what's the logic to your argument?
