If the Nets keep winning and the Magic decide to hang on to Dwight Howard, look for them to be buyers, not sellers, at the deadline this week.
One target, Michael Beasley, has already been mentioned but apparently there are others. "It’s about trying to add to this team," King said earlier in the week, as Fred Kerber notes. "We’ll look at other things that I was already talking about doing with other teams. Had some things on the table that I’m exploring that will maybe create more cap space for us in the future, maybe bring some more players or some key pieces."
On Beasley specifically, Kerber writes that an initial courtesy call may have turned into interest.
