The Nets announced Thursday afternoon that they have agreed in principle to a contract with forward Travis Outlaw. The deal is reportedly worth $35 million over five years, fully guaranteed and provides Outlaw a flat $7 million a year.

Meanwhile, "independent sources" tell Fred Kerber that Kyle Korver will sign with the Nets, too. Al Iannazzone adds the Nets could also offer a contract to Tyrus Thomas as early as Thursday afternoon. The Bobcats would have seven days to match any Nets' offer. Outlaw is 25, Korver 29 and Thomas 23.

A volume shooter with below average defense. I'm not sure why the Nets signed him. They could easily split those minutes between Courtney Lee, Terrence Williams and Travis Outlaw.

Korver and Outlaw add excess money and 0 wins to the team.

Over / Under 25 wins for the Nets next year?

Korver is one of the best, underrated shooter, and will be a great player off the bench

So far, they'll be well under 25 wins. However, my opinion could change if they land LeBron James.

i dont see how this is a bad move, the nets are a very poor 3 point shooting team and korver brings that...devin harris can hit the 3 but he's nowhere near the shooter that korver is so i see this as a good move for the nets

Korver is an excellent shooter who could light it up if Lopez gets doubled underneath. He's not gonna turn the franchise around but he's a solid addition.

Korver and Outlaw im sure arent what NJ had in mind, wonder what Korver will sign for, i already think they overpaid for Outlaw. With T-will, James and Courtney Lee i really dont think these guys are that much better then they already have. I think they could use some more size, you dont have to spend the cap space just because you have it, things open up, trades, salary dumps, etc.

Ahhhhhhhhh c'mon Kyle the Nets..... i would have really love to see Korver late in the playoffs hitting some big 3s for an immediate contender.

5/35 for Travis Outlaw OUCH!!!!

This is a smart signing. Don't know why you guys are complaining.

Ironic that the Nets originally drafted Korver and now they want him back.

The nets are doing fine, I think. The owner doesn't want to do NOTHING during his first FA period, that'd be no fun.
Besides, these guys aren't worthless... In fact, the Nets now have a stockpile of young talent that teams could ask for, so they can still net star power in a trade.

Devin Harris
Courtney Lee
Terrence Williams
Travis Outlaw
Kyle Korver
Derrick Favors
Kris Humphries

With the exception of Brook Lopez, is anyone on the Nets really untouchable?
A combo of Favors/Harris and two players from that list could net them a great player.
Al Jefferson?
Danny Granger?
Maybe a package from the Rockets that includes Scola.
Caron Butler?
Jamison?
Iggy?

You can't imagine the Nets to have no leverage. They can acquire star talent without overpaying for it, because they can just match contracts with players they've already set the price on. Kinda smart actually.
This way, they can acquire talent and still have money next summer to make a run at a Star like Melo.
I say, Good moves. (You'd rather have the players other teams want, then have nobody and cap room with no one left to sign)

Korver is a very serviceable player and his contract is pretty nice as well. Nice move by the Nets even though they need some game changing guys to turn the team around, not just solid role players like him and Outlaw.

I like it!

Korver would be a great backup SG for C.Lee & T.Outlaw will finally get to start!!

C) Lopez
PF) Favors
SF) Outlaw
SG) Lee
PG) D.Harris

Bench:

SF/SG T.Williams
SF/SG K.Korver
SG Q.Ross
PF K.Humphries
C J.Boone
SF D.James

White men cant jump ....but they sure can shoot and Korver is a damn fine shooter who will spread the floor big time. Nice pickup NJ. But hwy are you guys spending money when most teams in the James race are standing pat? I guess no Bosh or Boozer means money to burn? Korver is amust have for any team that needs shooters but Outlaw?

Good point, it makes since if your setting up a trade and you want to put two shooters around whoever you get.

I believe James' agent might have told them yesterday in private that James's not gonna go to the Nets, thus all these quick, cap-eating moves.

All good moves, if you ask me. Whether you sign LeBron or not, you have to get some players on your roster that can win games. If you don't sign LeBron, it leaves any team that does with less talent to build around him. Kyle Korver is a good pick up in either case.

Hopfully, no Korver.
