Al Iannazzone details a long line of attempts by Net brass to acquire players now on the Celtic roster, from Kevin Garnett to James Posey to Eddie House. Iannazzone says the Nets offered Richard Jefferson, Nenad Krstic and Marcus Williams to the Wolves for Garnett, and were close on Posey and House. Iannazzone also reveals another failed deal for Jefferson. Boston, he writes, offered Theo Ratliff and Al Jefferson for RJ last summer. Still, there are no sour grapes in Netsland.
