There were three point guards traded Wednesday but none to the Nets. Derrick Rose went from Chicago to New York. George Hill went from Indiana to Utah. Jeff Teague went from Atlanta to Indiana.
There was little news on the Nets. Chad Ford said the Nets are so bereft of assets he hasn't heard of one trade involving Brooklyn.
How resource poor are the Nets? Virtually every pick in the draft is for sale and I'm still not sure they can get into the first round— Chad Ford (@chadfordinsider) June 22, 2016
And Mike Scotto tweeted the the Nets are interested in Joakim Noah ... who plays the same position as "building blocks" Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young. Does that signal the Nets plan on trading either to move up? Beats us.
Sources: In addition to the Knicks, the Nets also have interest in free agent Joakim Noah. He attended Brooklyn's Poly Prep HS for two years— Michael Scotto (@MikeAScotto) June 22, 2016
The Knick trade for Rose could have implications for Brooklyn. It removes a competitor for Mike Conley, the Memphis Grizzlies free agent point guard.
With Knicks filling PG spot, you gotta figure #Nets have a better shot at signing a PG that wants to come to NY. Conley comes to mind.— Anthony Puccio (@APOOCH) June 22, 2016
Also, Indiana getting Teague takes them out of Conley running. So there goes those two. Guess it’s down to Lakers, Spurs, Nets.— Hardwood Paroxysm (@HPbasketball) June 23, 2016
The Nets were reportedly interested in Teague because of his connection to Kenny Atkinson.
As for Ford's claim, that's not what we hear. We hear Nets are active. How active? We'll see Thursday!
