Look, im all about Brook. Not only did he carry us through 2 of the toughest years our franchise has ever faced, but he is an outstanding ball player. That said, there comes a time where it is time to deal a player like Brook if the right opportunity presents itself.
This summer we should sign David West to a 4 year 40 million dollar contract. This will give us an all star caliber Power Forward. Even if this is the last move we do, it should give Deron enough talent around him to stay. The next move that the Nets should do is to sign and trade Brook Lopez and a package of picks and players (Morrow, Outlaw etc.) for Dwight Howard. This trade will supply us with a lineup of Deron Williams, Sasha Vujacic, Damion James (who has very real potential) David West and Dwight Howard. Not only will this completely convince Deron to stay but it will also give Nets fans a championship team.
