Fellas...Fellas...maybe I should have been more clear: The trade would be: the #15 pick (aka BJ Mullens), Tayshaun Prince, and Jason Maxiel for Brook Lopez and Bobby Simmons. Reasons the nets would agree to give up Brook Lopez: #1) They're getting a replacement with a higher upside (but also a higher risk) in BJ Mullens; #2) They're ridding themselves of a TERRIBLE contract; #3) They're getting a solid starting SF; #4) They're getting a solid starting PF. The Nets starting lineup goes from: PG-D. Harris, SG-K. Dooling, SF-V. Carter, PF-R. Anderson, C-B. Lopez...to...PG-D. Harris, SG-V. Carter, SF-T. Prince, PF: J. Maxiel, C: B. Mullens. It's a downgrade at center, sure, but its an overall lineup upgrade. Plus, it can be argued that Mullens will be better than Lopez in 3/4 years (I don't think so, but many do). And did I mention that they will no longer be paying bobby simmons 11 mil/per to play 10 minutes a game!? For us, its a win-win. Tayshaun needs to be moved - he simply can't guard LeBron. There's not going to be a need for Jason Maxiel with a better version of Jason Maxiel in Paul Millsap here (does Amir Johnson instead sweeten that deal?). Bobby Simmons contract sucks, but its just one year, we can handle it. BROOK LOPEZ IS GOING TO BE A STUD. He'd be a perfect fit here.
