"A Crazy Plan That Might Just Work"

Nets_PR/Gary Sussman

With the Nets meeting with Deron Williams later Monday, Ken Berger takes a detailed look at just what Billy King is up to and concludes that "their crazy plan might just work."

Berger looks at all the moving parts on what he calls "Brooklyn Day", the pursuit of Williams, the proposed trade for Joe Johnson and in the distance, the plan to get Dwight Howard, all of it conducted in the shadow of Barclays Center. It's a high risk, high reward plan.

He takes reader through the plan, not waiting for Howard, but instead moving on multiple other fronts while at the same making sure new GM Rob Hennigan understands the ramifications of waiting to long to talk with the Nets. "think for a moment how Hennigan feels about watching the Nets -- Howard's preferred team -- filling their cap space with Johnson, Wallace, Lopez and others instead of Howard and either Hedo Turkoglu or Jason Richardson."

Bottom line, writes Berger in the lengthy piece, "If it all works out, the Nets will move into their new building next season as a relevant, competitive and most important of all, interesting team -- a worthy challenger to the Knicks."
