Nets beat writer Dave D'Alessandro, writing in The Sporting News Wednesday, thinks the Nets are neither winners nor losers so far this off-season. Instead, he says the jury is out on the Nets' plan to rebuild their bench primarily through the draft. D'Alessandro calls the strategy "logical for a tax-paying team" but adds the Nets "are one big away from contention". Still, he thinks overpaying for one-talent players like Ben Wallace and Peja Stojakovic is a big mistake.
