Al Iannazzone adds details to a trade proposal the Nets declined at the deadline. As Fred Kerber first reported, the Nets and Bucks were involved in late discussions that would have sent Stromile Swift to the Bucks for Luke Ridnour. Iannazzone adds that the deal also included the Bucks' first round pick, Joe Alexander, and the Nets' Maurice Ager. The problem: it would have added $9 million to the team payroll next year.
