Two Proposed NETs Trades, Today's NET signing

Today it was reported that the NETs signed 6' 6" SG/SF Alan Anderson, who was undrafted in 2005 and played for Toronto last season. Anderson is a graduate of Michigan State U in the Big Ten.

With 15 players, and a probable playoff rotation of 9 (starters plus Blatche, Kirilenko, Terry and Livingston); the NETS, who are WAY into the luxury tax, might want to do some housecleaning. Two of the three most logical players who may not see time in the regular season rotation are Tyshaun Taylor and Tornike Shengalia.

Cleveland has 10 players under contract, does not want to give out multi-year deals (this year) or option years (most decent players want a player option on a one year contract in case they get hurt).

NETs could send Tyshaun Taylor and Tornike Shengalia to Cleveland for the draft rights to Ejike Ugboaja, who was the 55th pick of the 2005 draft and has since played in Nigeria, Poland, Cyprus, D-League and Iran. Yep, he'll never play in the NBA, but the NETS get themselves down to 13 players, savings like $1.7 million in salary and 6 Million in Luxury Tax.

Cleveland, with Kyrie Irving and Jarrett Jack is set at PG, but would like a 3rd body in case one of their top two guys misses a game.

Cleveland only has one PF (Tristan Thompson) and two SF's on their roster. Shengalia comes cheap, with no commitments that would impede their run at LeBron plus other free agents next summer to pair with ANdrson Varejao, Kyrie Irving and Andrew Bynum.

This would leave the NETS with 13 players. Since they still probably would like another PG, they could try to move Reggie Evans to Dallas for a second round pick. Dallas, like Cleveland, only has 10 players under contract, and Dallas only has one PF (Dirk Nowitski) under contract right now.

Trading Evans while adding a true PG would still leave the NETs with 13 players if they also traded Taylor, Shengalia and Evans. Moving Reggie's 1.6 Million contract for the next two years for a minimum salary player saves the NETs about 1.5 million in salary and another 5 million in luxury tax.
