Dave D'Alessandro wakes up early (or goes to bed late) with discussion of the Nets' post-defeat mood, which was rather calm, except for Mikki Moore. Dave also confirms that the Nets and Clippers did discuss a deal that would send Vince Carter and Marcus Williams to LA for Corey Maggette and Shaun Livingston. The Nets killed the deal, writes D'Alessandro but could revive it if these two steps back aren't followed by anything going forward. The L.A. Times has a different spin: it is very much dead.
