I was looking at the Nets' roster on ESPN and it shows Plumlee as number 5. The roster also still has all of the guys that we are going to be trading for Pierce and Garnett, so maybe it's not accurate, but if it is I think it's kind of messed up that he'd take that number as a rookie, especially in Kidd's first year as coach. For years players have been avoiding the number 5 out of respect for Kidd, and I've read that even Garnett is going back to 21.
I think it would be really cool if they retired Kidd's number 5 jersey at the first home game in Brooklyn. Maybe it's a little too soon, but he's officially retired and it would be a nice homecoming for him. Maybe Nets Daily can make it happen!
