Addition 'Buy' Subtraction

As the Nets limp to the finish line we must all take a breather (now breathe in, good, breathe out, good.. nice and slow) and realize that despite the consistent build up of losses we are well positioned to have break out season next year.  Sure there are concerns (see Brook Lopez) but we have a solid core that can be added to.  It starts with 'Addition Buy Subtraction'- Travis Outlaw.  Like some of you who may dabble in the stock market I find it is always important to have your 'out' points.  Points at which you say that a stock has gone down by X percentage, and well for a lack of a better word, you must puke your position.  Take your loss like a man and move on.  That may be 10% of the value or some other arbitrary number but the point is.. you dump it and move on to fight another day.  This is where we find ourselves with Travis Outlaw.  He is just so bad that we have no choice but to dump him and move on.  He has 4 yrs and 28 mm left on his deal.  If we can cut him loose at 20mm then we only take a hit of 5mm per instead of 7mm and perhaps most importantly we never have to see him put on a Net uniform on again.  We move forward and don't look back on this parting gift that Thorn gave us before he headed down the Turnpike.  Then we look for a player along the lines of a Wilson Chandler that can come in and fill by far our biggest void, SF.  The kid is young, can score inside and out, and he has an uncanny ability to rebound and block shots at that position.  Next.. a back up PF via the draft to help out Hump who we resign.  After that, we try and get a Big Guard who can defend (see Sasha but can make an open jumper).  This would work well with the gifted outside shooting of Morrow.  In the end we have gotten rid of Travis The Terrible, added a starting SF, paired Morrow with a big guard who works well in a platoon format, and brought back Hump with a capable back up.  Not a bad plan for the Brooklyn Nets.
