Did the Nets Engage in "Slow-Burn Tanking"?

Tom Ziller writes about tanking. Losing to get more ping pong balls and a better draft position is "a bit overblown", but he says what's more common is "slow-burn tanking ... trading or waiving just about everyone who can play and who doesn't figure in your future." He doesn't contend the Nets did a "slow burn", but does note they're virtually assured the best shot at the #1 pick, seven games behind the Wolves.
