it's Day One of the Sean Marks era and while Frank Zanin is fielding calls as assistant GM, there are reports that teams are trying to reach him about deals for Thaddeus Young, specifically Toronto and Boston.

Nets asst. GM Frank Zanin has been taking calls from teams and compiling trade offers. Let's see if Nets pull trigger on one before deadline— Jeff Zillgitt (@JeffZillgitt) February 18, 2016
The Boston Celtics are also one of the teams that have called the Nets about Thaddeus Young's availability, a source confirmed.— Jake Fischer (@JakeLFischer) February 18, 2016
I've heard the Mavericks and Raptors have inquired about Thaddeus Young's availability. Young is interested in joining a playoff team.— Jake Fischer (@JakeLFischer) February 18, 2016
It's uncertain whether other GMs reach Marks or now whether he would want the responsibility of doing such a big deal on his first day ... or whether Mikhail Prokhorov would want to deal him. Prokhorov has made a point of saying that he sees Young, Brook Lopez as the cornerstones of a plan to lure free agents this summer to effect a "reset."
