Free agent signing season began yesterday with Jacque Vaughn departing and Cliff Robinson a fax away from returning. And while other teams went about their business acquiring new players or tendering offer sheets, the Nets seemed content focusing on their rookie class, signing Marcus Williams and Josh Boone. Hassan Adams should sign soon as well and Serbian newspapers say talks have begun with Mile Ilic. Can the four provide the bench strength missing last season? The Nets say yes.
