The Daily News' Mitch Lawrence reports that the Nets will ask the Sonics for permission to speak with their former GM, Rick Sund. Sund, fired last April, is still a consultant to Seattle. Sund's biggest deal in Seattle was trading Gary Payton for Ray Allen, but was also criticized for a series of draft picks that included Robert Swift, Johan Petro and Nick Collison, all of whom have disappointed. Meanwhile, the Sez pays tribute to the departed Travelin' Man.
