McInnis Contract Woes Kept Nets Out of the Bidding For 'Flight' White

When James "Flight" White was unexpectedly released by the Pacers the day before the season opened, the Nets wanted to pursue the 6'-7" rookie swingman out of Cincinnati. But because New Jersey has been unable to dump Jeff McInnis' contract, the team was out of luck, reports the Star-Ledger and Record. The Nets had worked out White, an athletic defender, before the draft and even considered him in the first round. White has since signed with San Antonio.
