Mason Plumlee is now the Nets third string center.

Lionel Hollins confirmed that All-Rookie Team center last season is now behind Jerome Jordan in the Nets rotation and that Plumlee needs to do one thing to get back in his good graces.

He says he's seen enough.

And he explained what he likes about Jordan, who doesn't even have a guaranteed deal.

As we noted the other day, in the last four games, Jordan has played 37 minutes, almost double Plumlee's 19. Over those four games, Jordan scored 10 points and grabbed 11 boards, while Plumlee recorded 10 and four.  Of course, it's not all about the bigs. As Joe Johnson says, it's about staying power.

Ironically, NBA.com chose today to "spotlight" Plumlee's progress.  The Nets face the Bulls on Sunday. It looks like Derrick Rose will play. It's his first game at Barclays Center ... ever.
