With Free Agency Only a Day Away, No Resolution on Nets Aspirations

Caron Butler remains in New Jersey Thursday for his second day of meetings, having arrived Wednesday afternoon, Ken Berger writes. Marc. J. Spear reports the Bulls remain the front runner for his services, at the $5 million MLE. Adrian Wojnarowski thinks the competition for Tyson Chandler is down to the Nets and Warriors, but Marc Cuban could swoop in at the last minute. Asking price for Chandler? Could be as high as $60 million over four years, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

Nene? Not much out there. Colin Stephenson says the Nets are still pursuing him with others reporting that Larry Bird tried to talk Nene into accepting less money and play for the Pacers during a meeting Tuesday. The Nuggets are still in the picture as are the Rockets, who may lose Chuck Hayes to the Kings.

Otherwise, the Nets have been quiet. Many of the 11 players currently on the roster were at the PNY Center Wednesday, with Brook Lopez being seen and Anthony Morrow, Damion James, Marshon Brooks and Jordan Williams all tweeting about what a good workout they had. Presumably Johan Petro's workouts are less lonely now but continuing. Deron Williams arrived back in New York Wednesday night.
