It's been reported in tweets at the trade deadline from Chris Mannix and Al Iannazzone, repeated in a column by Peter Veceey and now detailed in a game story by Stefan Bondy: The Nets top targets in free agency are Kevin Garnett, Ryan Anderson and Ersan Ilyasova, not necessarily in that order. Bondy writes Sunday...

According to multiple sources, the Nets - who will have roughly $8 million to work with this summer after renouncing the rights to Kris Humphries -- are targeting power forwards Kevin Garnett (restricted) and Ersan Ilyasova (unrestricted) in free agency.

Ryan Anderson (restricted) is the other top power forward available - and would certainly be a welcomed upgrade -- but the Nets want a stronger rebounder to play alongside Brook Lopez.

Garnett, who's reportedly considering retirement, is averaging 15.3 points and 8.3 rebounds. He turns 36 in May. Ilyasova is 24 and Anderson 23.
