And then, on the 27th day, he rested. Billy King tells Fred Kerber that the Nets, with 13 players signed (and attempts to sign Andrei Kirilenko and Nazr Mohammed having failed) "are pretty much done."
King, who has spent $335 million of Mikhail Prokhorov's money since Draft Night, said he believes concerns about the lack of a traditional center are overblown. "Not really that important," the Nets GM said. He and other Nets officials have said they believe Kris Humphries, Mirza Teletovic, both 6'9" and Reggie Evans, 6'8", can fill in. And the Nets still have two roster spots open if they change their mind.
Meanwhile, Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Timberwolves are about to ink Kirilenko to a two-year, $20 million contract, but only the first year is guaranteed, which could set up yet another pursuit of the former All-Star.
