The Nets may be close to trading Jason Collins to Memphis for Stromile Swift, the athletic but underachieving power forward. The Nets were reportedly rebuffed in an earlier attempt to pick up Swift for Jamaal Magloire and are now offering Collins. Swift, 28, will be paid $5.8 million this season and has a player option at $6.2 million for next, a near match for Collins.
