When he was in Portland, Travis Outlaw was known as "Mr. Fourth Quarter" for a series of heroic exploits: last minute shots, blocked shots, etc. After he was given $35 million by the Nets this off-season, he was seen as the team's starting small forward, the heir to Richard Jefferson. But that didn't work out at least so far.
So the Nets have moved him back to his old role in hopes of getting maximum value from that contract and/or get him back into his rhythm. Ben Couch takes a look at Outlaw's prospects. He thinks things will get better.
"I think I lost my edge in being aggressive, trying to think the game too much instead of just going out and playing my game," Outlaw admitted.
