Knee or Not, Was Abdur-Rahim Worth It?

What does Shareef Abdur-Rahim's play and Sacramento's record say about whether the Nets made a mistake in not taking the former all-star last summer?
Al Iannazzone in his weekly YES column thinks that Rod Thorn may have made the right move last summer, no matter what the status of Abdur-Rahim's knee. He says simply that the dropoff in the King forward's game as well as his poor defense shows he is not the same player he once was and not what the Nets need.
