Harris and Jones will add rebounding and toughness next to Brook Lopez that the Nets need. Shakur can form an active backcourt with rookie Terrence Williams. Why is a guy like Shakur not being given a chance? If successful, these guys could stick next year as backups.
Do the Nets have anyone scouting D-League for the next Mikki Moore or Jamie Feick or Chris Childs? Could you tell them to call up SOMEBODY? Help us, D-League!
The Nets' strategy is to get the #1 pick and sign PG John Wall, sign free agent SF LeBron James, sign free agent PF Chris Bosh, add the Dallas #1, add their #2 that's at the top of that round, and that's a pretty strong team. There's a place on that team for a rebounding Dwayne Jones, a Mike Harris, or a Mustafa Shakur as reserves. Why not try them out now?
