The Nets formally announced the signings of Jordan Farmar, Travis Outlaw and Johan Petro on Wednesday, and then had all four of their new players (including Anthony Morrow acquired in a sign-and-trade) meet the media. They're young, they're apparently happy to be here, and they're looking for an opportunity to play.
None is more enthusiastic than Farmar. Before traveling to New Jersey, he had been at an ESPYs event in Hollywood. He said, and we quote ESPN, "I think the Nets are going to win the championship this year."
Who could be next? Finding a power forward won't be easy, especially if the Nets want to retain most or all of the salary cap space they currently have. "I’m not necessarily confident it will happen before training camp," Avery Johnson said.
