It's not much of an exaggeration to say that within the last month, the Nets have gone from the worst depth they've ever had at small forward to one of their best, from DeShawn Stevenson and Andre Emmett to Gerald Wallace and Gerald Green. That's a big jump.

As Fred Kerber reported, in the first 45 games this season, at the starting small-forward spot, the Nets were outscored 682-to-231, or 10 full points a game, 15.2 to 5.2.

In the three games since the trade, it's been the Nets with the advantage, 51-23, or 17.0 to 7.7 per. And that doesn't include Green's numbers at SF, 11.0 over 13 games and 10.0 over the last three.

BrooklynFans.com calls them "building blocks" for Brooklyn, although neither are locks for Barclays Center. Deron Williams said of Wallace in another BrooklynFans video, "Gerald Wallace is definitely going to help this team, help this organization. He's a great player, he's been a great player in this league for 11 years now. He's still relatively young and can help us in the future.
