If the Nets knew they were going to steal Lopez with the 10th pick, would they have made that deal with the Bucks to get rid of Jefferson. The whole point of the deal was to get a big man and get younger and by getting Lopez they did exactly that. So then comes the question if the Nets knew they were getting the Young and Big Lopez would they have pulled the trigger on the Jefferson deal.

Yea, that was for cap space purposes and Yi's upside......Yi is 7 feet but he ain't big man material, he's more a face up stretch the defense type of a player. It has nothing to do with the Lopez draft.

Well.. The "bigman" thing does not matter at all. First of all they were trying to clear cap space for 2010, second of all, Yi Jian Lian can play both PF and SF which gives NJ a bright future and alot of flexibilty.

Lopez is a straight up Center/PF. The draft was a steal but it dosn't change the view of the franchise at all.

Their roster does not look so bad right now
PG- D. Harris
SG- V. Carter
SF- Yi Jian Lian
PF- Kristic
C- Lopez

The whole purpose of the trade was for cap reasons i agree. So they probably would've still done it.

Yeha, they would have dealt jefferson regardless of who they were drafting. It was a salary dump. Kristic and Vince are probably goners as well. I just don't see the point of keeping kristic when you've got 4 quality young bigs. And we all saw what happened with Vince in Toronto when he was on a **** team. At this stage in his career, I expect he'll want out and will be moved at midseason.

I wonder if they could get any value for VC. Maybe they could trade him to the Spurs for Bonner. haha

VC's got a big contract, there are only a few teams that have the contracts that are big enough and expire after this or next season.

I don't think VC and Lebron will be on the same team. Carter is already being critisized? about his age and determination. I really don't think he will last with the Nets until 2010.

Like many have said they are trying to clear cap space for Lebron so they would have done the deal regardless
