By: NBASCOUT / Special to netsinteractive.comThe Nets made some nice moves on draft day, but in doing so they cut their last remaining ties to the "Big Three" by trading venerable SG Vince Carter and promising young PF Ryan Anderson to the Orlando Magic for young SG Courtney Lee and others. The trio of PG Jason Kidd, SG Vince Carter and SF Richard Jefferson was the core of the team during the Kidd era.
Vince now has to be ecstactic for a chance to play for a championship ring down in Orlando, Florida - his home state. In making this move the Nets carved out enormous financial flexibility to allow them to be real players in the 2010 free agent sweepstakes that includes the likes of LeBron, Wade, Bosh and others ... OR ... Reward their own should they merit it.
Mock ... Mock ... Who's There?
By: NBASCOUT / Special to netsinteractive.comAs everyone knows by now, the upcoming 2009 NBA draft will be held tomorrow, on June 25, between the hours of 7pm thru midnight ET at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
For the New Jersey Nets, a lot depends on who is there when they choose. The Nets' braintrust should have a shot at a number of good players.
If the Nets want another pick, they should 'bite the bullet' and buy it. Minnesota, Chicago or Portland have multiple selections in the first or second rounds.
In what has been termed a "weak" draft, there are pockets of opportunity, but many hazards. On balance, there will be more players that don't pan out than those that do. It's up to the personnel types to play this draft well ... if ... at all!
While I don't want to make a mockery of all the other mock boards out there, they represent no more than speculation (read: guesswork). Some, however, are more informed than others.
Some tell you what they think the teams will do. Others are about what the individual author of the mock would do if he were running the entire draft. Still, others are for the sake of getting something down on paper.
With that in mind what follows is NBASCOUT'S 2009 First Round Mock.
Nets Take Opener On Road
By: NBASCOUT / Special to netsinteractive.com
Nets 95, Washington 85
Wash., DC, Oct. 29 -- The Nets took their home opener on the road against the Washington Wizards, 95-to-85. Of course, the Wizards were without rehabbing PG/SG Gilbert Arenas, but still you can't fault the Nets for winning.
The Nets played when it counted and held their own all night. Star SG Vince Carter had 21 points on 9-of-17 shooting to go with 6 assists. Starting PF Yi Jianlian sparkled with 17 points on an efficient 7-of-11 from the floor to go with six boards and reserve SF Jarvis Hayes, signed as a free-agent in the offseason, showed what he can do by coming off the bench to make an important contribution against one of his former teams to pour in 14 points, grab five rebounds and snag three takeaways. All-in-all, not a bad night's production.
While this is only one game and you don't want to get too giddy, the Coach played ten players and all contributed or impacted the game in some way: A good sign! Another was that veterans Vince Carter and PG Devin Harris (13p, 5a, 5r) did what they had to do when they were supposed to. In other words, they put the game away when it was hanging in the balance.
Season Kick Off
By: NBASCOUT / Special to nets interactive.comThe 2008-2009 NBA season gets underway tomorrow for the New Jersey Nets. With a solid training camp under their belts and an interesting preseason in the books, in an election year such as this, it is only fitting that the 'new look Nets,' with a whole new roster and an entirely revamped front line, kick it off in the nation's capitol Wednesday night against the Washington Wizards. Tip-off is at 7:00pm, and the game will be broadcast on the YES Network.
Starting Over, But Not From Scratch ...
By: NBASCOUT / Special to netsinteractiveThe venerable former Net, Jason Kidd, has remarked of late that the Nets are "starting over." To that I would add: But not from scratch!
Indeed, there are but three remaining holdovers from the Kidd era: Vince Carter, Josh Boone and Sean Williams. Never the less, it doesn't mean that the Nets can't achieve!
Starting PG Devin Harris is a seasoned player that only recently was guiding the Dallas Mavericks to the NBA finals. Backup PG Keyon Dooling brings valuable playoff experience from Miami and Orlando. Eduardo Najera, Jarvis Hayes and Trenton Hassell are no strangers to the real season either. So, you can't say the team is devoid of postseason experience. Finally, you can't forget that one of the greatest athletes to ever dunk a basketball is also on hand. His name: Vince Carter!
Remember, it is not as if Vinsanity didn't go one up on the Heat on the way to a possible finals appearance with a spirited Nets squad a few short years ago. It was against one of the better, Riley-coached, Shaq-led, championship teams of all-time. The run was cut short by an injury to running-mate Richard Jefferson ... and an untimely suspension to Cliff Robinson.
So what's to expect from the 2008-2009 version of the Nets?
