The Nets should be one of the most intriguing teams this offseason, as they look ahead to plenty of cap room, their move to Brooklyn, and the looming spectre of a potential Dwight Howard trade. Here's the latest from the team's final days in New Jersey:
- Power forward Kris Humphries is averaging career highs in virtually every major category, and Colin Stephenson of the Star Ledger checks in with the consistent double-double threat who's drawing the admiration of his teammates ahead of his impending free agency.
- The Nets won't wait around for the Dwight Howard saga to be resolved, says Fred Kerber of the New York Post, who examines the team's plans this summer. He reiterates an earlier report that the team may look elsewhere at the power forward position despite Humphries' improvement this year.
- Gerald Green's resurgence this season after a two-year absence from the league is quite a comeback story. Still, it's not as impressive as his ability to make the NBA at all after having half the ring finger on his shooting hand amputated following a freak accident while dunking as a sixth-grader, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News writes. Earlier this week, we heard that Green would be willing to give the Nets a hometown discount in free agency this summer.
