Nets Links: Livingston, Collins, Bogdanovic

Shaun Livingston will almost certainly receive better offers than the $3.278MM taxpayer’s mid-level to which the Nets will be limited, sources tell Marc Stein of The 28-year-old guard said today that he’d like to re-sign with Brooklyn, as Newsday’s Rod Boone observes, making clear a desire at which he’d hinted earlier, and while he added that money isn’t necessarily a priority, it seems he’ll have to turn some down to remain in Brooklyn (Twitter link). Here’s more from the Nets:

  • Jason Collins, whose contract doesn’t carry over into next season, isn’t sure he wants to continue playing, as Ohm Youngmisuk of observes. The 35-year-old made history this season as the first openly gay athlete in major North American pro sports.
  • report earlier this week indicated that the Nets don’t expect to sign draft-and-stash forward Bojan Bogdanovic anytime soon, but GM Billy King said today that Bogdanovic will be an “option” for the team this summer, Boone tweets.
  • The Nets are without a pick in next month’s draft, but King indicated the team will consider trading for one, Boone adds via Twitter.
  • The Nets biggest disappointment has been Deron Williams, writes Howard Beck of Bleacher Report. A Brooklyn official tells Beck that the potential for Williams to return to All-Star form next season is the true “X-factor” for their contention hopes, and Beck wonders if the team could even retool and trade away the 29-year-old this offseason.

    no contract is untradeable in the nba but deron willams contract is untradeable

      Not true. Houston already tried to trade for him at the deadline. I won’t be surprised if they try again.

        nets might as well take LIn and osik and get out from under deron’s contract. then resign LIN and osik after next yr with there bird right, or let them walk

    • Rashidi

      You misspelled Joe Johnson.

      Knicks would surely welcome a Bargnani-JR-Felton swap for D-Will.
