View Full Version : Are the Nets tanking?

It's hard enough for the Nets to get a win when they try, and recent developments shows the nets have given up on even trying to win games. The Nets have just traded for Chris Quinn, an NBA expert at tanking games. So it may be official net fans, the race for Wall begins.

I don't think so. They were absolutely decimated by injuries early on in the year, and still were playing most every team closely. They just aren't good right now. This isn't the NFL either, where having the worst record automatically means you get the first pick. Tanking is very rarely rewarded. My parents live in NY, so when I'm home from college, I get YES. I've seen a few Nets games. They try hard, they just suck.

theyre trying to impress lebron n the other free agents with their "young talent" why would they tank? theyre trying hard to win.

but they jus arent doing a good job at impressing the free agents

ye not the right time to tank their young players have to show they can win.

Getting rid of Alston for Quinn and a second round pick essentially is a good cost cutting move. I don't think those two moves really mean they are tanking at all. Alston wasn't really a big part of that team anyways.

Dooling is back so Rafer isn't needed nor does he want to be there so it is addition by subtraction not tanking

They try, they just suck.

Why would they tank it all comes down to ping pong balls anyways. How amny times have you seen the worst team not get the number 1 pick.

they dont need to tank. They were going to be last place anyways (IMO), this trade just improves their chances slightly. It comes down to the lottery so there is no need to tank. i know the worst team got the 1st pick only a handful of times.

It honestly has a been a "slap in the face" season for not only NJ Net fans, but also the team in general. With a ton of money coming off the books next season and the opportunity to spend to build around their young core, you would think they'd be a great squad; but this hasn't happened. Definitely a terrible season and most likely, not unless they throw the big bucks & possibly a meet-great with part owner, Jay Z, I honestly don't see the Nets gettin the cream of the crop of free agents in 2010(LebRon, Wade, or Bosh).

Before Free agency & the NBA Draft.. remaining players on the Nets Roster:

SG/PG- Devin Harris - $8.91 mill
PG- Keyon Dooling- $3.83 mill
PF/SF- E.Najera- $2.8mill
PF/SF- Yi - $4.1 mill
C- Brook Lopez- $2.413 mill
SF- T.Williams- $2.215 mill
C/PF- J.Boone- $2.993 mill(Qualifying offer)
SG- Court Lee- $1.353 mill
SF/SG- Chris Doug-Roberts .855k

Overall Salary: $23,137,612

Not to mention they have 4(well 5 after the Chris quinn acquisition) picks in the 2010 NBA Draft.
