The Record's Al Iannazzone, who first reported Nets' interest in Blazer bad boy Ruben Patterson, now says the Nets are "reconsidering" pursuing him because of his behavioral issues. In a "Nets' Notes" that was not published online, Iannazzone reports that the Nets had considered sending Jeff McInnis and Marc Jackson to the Blazers. Iannazzone has never reported on the Blazers' level of interest in the Nets' two off-season acquisitions. Meanwhile, Dave D'Alessandro of the Star-Ledger says chances are "slim and none".
