Hard to believe Danny couldnt offer something better than a pick in the 25-30 range. Cleveland basically stole him for taking back Tauren Princes contract and the 1st.

Jarrett Allen is exactly what this team needed and hes only 22.

Really discouraging. Drummond could be had for nothing now, if only he wasnt just outside of the TPE.

I wouldn't have minded the Celtics getting him but maybe they didn't want to have to pay his next contract.   (it is coming up soon right)

We have Theis, Thompson and Williams at center.  Danny probably decided that hed rather use our draft capital and TPE on more of a position of need.

We have more pressing needs than yet another center.

I'd much prefer Danny go after a wing and a scorer off of the bench.

I agree. Even prince would have been a nice addition off the bench. As far as the contract goes for Allen, yes he is due to get paid but hes not getting max and for his potential, 15-20 million a year would be a great value in the current nba marketplace

Exactly.  Allen would have been a marginal upgrade at best, and arguably not an upgrade at all.

It's possible the Nets didn't want to include Boston in the deal and help them improve. Let's face it, Boston is one of the Nets main competitors to get out of the East. I don't think the Nets are concerned about Indiana and Cleveland.

Whats his potential do you think?  Hes basically been an 11 / 11 guy the past three seasons.  On a possession by possession basis, hes essentially matched by both Timelord and Thompson.

Maybe the Nets didn't want to help the Celtics and would rather send a good player to the CAVS versus their rival.  Sometimes people knock danny for not doing something when maybe it wasn't even an option.  If I were Danny and I were making a deal I'd rather send a player to the Cavs versus my competitor if that was an option.  Plus the NETS have to watch the J's for the next 10 years and know that their franchise was directly responsible for that gift.  I'm sure the Fans would not be happy if their team traded Allen to the C's and the C's beat them and won a title.

1. Why would the Nets help the Cs (again)?

2. Cs have 3 good big men on the roster already whom they are struggling to give adequate plying time to now.

3. Allen is due for a ginormous pay raise which the Cs will not want.

4. Cleveland was after Allen on the offseason and will likely pay to extend him making McGee/Drummond expendable.

exactly

Nets are probably not going to deal with the Celts for a long time. Or unless they can do the fleecing

I really like Allen, but he would only be a minor upgrade, is on the last year of his deal, would've cost us some other asset, and with his new deal, he'd put us way over the luxury tax threshold next year. Is that the type of guy you're going into the luxury tax over?

I doubt the Nets care at all about a trade that happened 8 years ago. But we're one of a few teams standing between them and the finals, they aren't making a deal that would strengthen us.

If we didnt just sign TT, Id want us to try get Allen. But as it stands, Id rather the team fill a wing position instead.
