Williams is an elite PG and a definite upgrade from Harris, but this is predictably the Nets reaching for a deal after Melo went crosstown.

Maybe strange to say, but I don't envy New York-area teams. The pressure is always on to win, and often it results in win-now, knee-jerk moves. Only the Yankees can outspend their gaffes on a regular basis.

Brandon Wright also goes to the Nets from the Warriors.

So does Howard join in another year and a half? Or just try to force his way out ala Melo.

This message is a place holder proving my inability to read. At one time the text here proved that to be true.

Woj, who broke the story, has it at NJ's 2011 pick, and GS's 2012 pick, which Nets own.

I trust Woj a helluva lot more than I trust ESPN, but ultimately I have no idea which is correct.

EDIT: GS pick is top 7 protected.

Howard's going to Los Angeles when he can.

Write it down and place that in the vault. :thumb up:

This should also increase the odds thaty C Paul is a future Knick.

It's just a matter of which LA. Maybe Sterling sees what he has and starts making moves for some established talent.

Does NY have enough to try and trade for CP3 or will they be able to get under the cap to sign him as a FA? Don't think they can do it as the CBA is currently constructed and have a hard time believing it'll get any easier after the lockout.

I was surprised when I read that this deal went down.
