Nets, Confident about Abdur-Rahim, Pursue Dooling

With the Nets feeling good about getting Shareef Abdur-Rahim, the team turned its attention to other pieces of the off-season puzzle, starting with Heat guard Keyon Dooling. The Nets' top priority, however, remained getting a sign-and-trade deal done with the Blazers. Although no progress was reported, Rod Thorn seemed to be wavering on his "no first round pick" stance while a competing deal between the Blazers and Kings fell apart. Meanwhile, the Nets' own Cliff Robinson agreed to a new, two-year, $4.5 million contract and the team considered signing 6'10" Bobcat forward Malik Allen, 6'5" Rocket guard Jon Barry and others.
