The Nets have been actively seeking a big man as their season gets drearier and the need becomes more obvious. But the team will not give up its first round pick easily. The Nets were willing to trade Jason Collins to Portland for Jamaal Magloire...until the Blazers asked for a first round pick. The Nets might give up the pick for Chris Wilcox, Al Iannazzone reports, but not for Magloire, Melvin Ely or Anderson Varejao.
