So with the NBA trade deadline about a month and change away, I decided to make a thread revolving around ways the Nets can upgrade their roster and any other rumors / ideas you may have. Here's my first idea coming out of Portland involving JJ Hickson.
Trade Machine Idea: http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=a9pc9nrJ.J. Hickson's agent has received inquiring phone calls from teams interested in making a trade for him with the Portland Trail Blazers, according to sources.
Those teams have yet to reach out to Blazers general manager Neil Olshey.
Hickson is a Bird Rights player on a one-year, $4 million deal and he has the power to veto any trade that is proposed. If he approves a deal, he will lose his Bird Rights.
Hickson is averaging 12.2 points and a career-high 11.0 rebounds in 29.4 minutes per game.

We would have to throw together a package of picks so probably a first and a second. What are your thoughts guys?
All trade rumors and ideas welcome!
