Word from beat writers is that in any free agency frenzy, the Nets will focus first on a big man, with names like Nene, Tyson Chandler and David West floated. The writers have also talked about the Nets' desire to hire an experienced small forward, one with defensive credentials. Maybe Tayshaun Prince or Andrei Kirilenko.
HoopsWorld makes the point that whoever the Nets target, they better be ready to assume the role of third leading scorer, after Deron Williams and Brook Lopez. Jason Fleming suggests some names. He notes that while Anthony Morrow, MarShon Brooks, Damion James, even Travis Outlaw have potential, the Nets need to go for O.J. Mayo, Jamal Crawford, Nick Young, Jason Richardson, or Vince Carter.
