Thabo Sefalosha

I've resigned myself to the reality that it's highly unlikely for the Nets to blow up the roster. If we're going to try to contend for a championship with this roster, I think what we're really missing is a starting caliber 3&D guy to start at SG. Thabo Sefalosha is one of the best 3&D guys in the league. He's an expiring contract that would fit in the DPE. OKC is going to have a hard time retaining him without going over the luxury tax and they have young guards behind him (Reggie Jackson, Jeremy Lamb, Andre Roberson) who can fill in for him.

If we're not going to blow up the roster, it's going to be difficult to bring Bogdanovic over and/or retain some of our players from this year like Livingston (a Schwartz client), Anderson, and Blatche.

I propose trading the rights to Bogdanovic for Sefalosha and using the DPE to absorb his contract.

This saves OKC whatever is left of Sefalosha's contract and they get an asset in return instead of him walking for nothing this summer. They have young players who can step in and fill in for him right away. For us, it gets us a wing stopper, clears the mMLE for Livingston in the summer and makes us less reliable on Terry and Anderson.

This year:

Williams / Livingston / Teague

Sefalosha / Anderson / Terry

Johnson / Kirilenko

Pierce / Teletovic / Evans

Garnett / Blatche / Plumlee / Lopez

Next year with a healthy Lopez (and with KG and Pierce being older):

Williams / Livingston / Teague

Sefalosha / Terry

Johnson / Pierce

Kirilenko / Teletovic / Evans

Lopez / Garnett / Plumlee

*This assumes we use the mMLE to re-sign Livingston, bird rights to re-sign Sefalosha & Pierce, and are not able to retain Anderson or Blatche.
