It's hard to call the Nets anything but losers in free agency, but in his Winners and Losers column Sunday, Dave D'Alessandro points out the window may not be closed for the team.
Calling their signing of four players for a total of $69 million "not much of a haul after selling their fan base that LeBron pipe dream", Dave D then notes, "with some imagination and luck, their present management could easily flip this, because nowadays cap space is more often used to facilitate trades than on free agents."
Among the other losers (we know who the winners are): Richard Jefferson for turning down $15 million and Amare Stoudemire for not bringing Steve Nash with him to New York. Jury's still out on the Knicks, he writes.
