WhoopDeDamnDo: Draft Day Mistake

The Nets to take a long look in the mirror...

Nets Work Out Xavier Guard

With the NCAA's early entry deadline Saturday, the Nets have been working out players still on the fence. Jimmer Fredette, 6'2" point guard out of Brigham Young and Jordan Crawford, a 6'4" shooting guard out of Xavier, both got in licks at the end of the week. Crawford got positive enough reviews to stay in the draft and hire Mark Bartlestein as his agent. He is projected to go at the end of the first round or the beginning of the second. Crawford gained a measure of fame last July by dunking on LeBron James at James' Skills Academy. Fredette got positive reviews as well, but remains uncertain. Players have until 11:59 p.m. Saturday to fax in their decisions.

Could Nets Gain from Wade Staying in Miami?

ESPN's Sheridan suggests the Nets could benefit from Dwyane Wade's decision to stay in Miami. He thinks the Nets would take Michael Beasley in a swap for "basically nothing". Nets would "restock" while the Heat would drop to $0 in payroll.

Kidd-Harris Debate Up for Renewal

Is it time to debate the Jason Kidd-Devin Harris trade...again. With the Mavs down 3-1 to the Spurs and appearing to be headed for another first round exit, has Kidd met Mark Cuban's expectations? Did the Nets get enough of what they wanted 26 months ago?

Deadlines and Commitments - III

With only a few legal formalities standing between Mikhail Prokhorov and the Nets, the team is now fully engaged in preparing for a new coach, busy nights on May 18 (Draft Lottery) and June 24...

After LeBron, the Back-Up Plan

What's Plan 'B" for the Nets if they don't get LeBron, who they will no doubt target? There are four "hot" names in the Nets' front office: Amar'e Stoudemire, Carlos Boozer, David Lee and Rudy Gay. What are the chances?

Woj: Nets' Coaching Search Is All About JVG

Adrian Wojnarowski says Jeff Van Gundy is the Nets #1 choice for head coach and that everyone else is a distant #2. He also thinks the Nets' biggest advantage in turning things around is Mikhail Prokhorov's personality. He says players will be attracted to partying with him and his girls.

Game 79 - Nets vs. Bulls - Friday, April 9, 8:00

The Nets can play spoiler Friday night against the Bulls ... or they can clinch the worst record in the league.

Is There a Coin Flip in the Nets Future?

It's not likely the Nets will win enough games to tie the Timberwolves and drop into a tie for first place in the Draft Lottery. That doesn't mean the Nets' other pick in first round--acquired from the Mavericks in the Jason Kidd trade--won't be a heads-or-tails situation. Teams that have identical records at season's end flip a coin on April 15 to settle draft order. If the season ended today, the Nets would be involved in a coin flip...with the Thunder. The Mavs, whose pick is held by the Nets, and Suns, whose pick is held by the Thunder, have identical 50-26 records. So, a coin flip would decide who gets pick #26 and who gets #27. With five other teams within three games of the Mavs, it's theoretically possible the Nets could wind up in a tie for a pick as high as #22. Three of the Mavs' six remaining games are against playoff teams.

Deadlines and Commitments

With the season nearing an end and Mikhail Prokhorov still not approved as Nets owner, time is running short for the Nets' front office to begin preparing for the draft, free agency and coaching search. The dates to watch begin this weekend.
