For Lee and Gay, Nets Are Realistic Possibility

For months, reporters have bandied about names of who the Nets might sign this off-season.  The big names are obvious--LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Joe Johnson, Amare Stoudemire.  They're also unlikely to sign with the Nets. It's even possible they won't sign with any team other than their current one. That leaves the next tier of free agents which is topped by players like David Lee and Rudy Gay, who's a restricted free agent.  David Lee told Fred Kerber Saturday he finds the Nets an interesting team he'd consider.  He wasn't being poliitcally correct either, writtes Kerber's colleague, George Willis.  Lee is frustrated by the Knicks' struggles, their inability to find a big man to take the pressure off him, and their tendency to take him for granted.  Meanwhile, Al Iannazzone writes the Gay wasn't being politically correct either a month ago when he told reporters he'd consider the Nets.  Privately, he's told friends New Jersey is a place he wouldn’t mind going.
