Al Jefferson and #4, 23 to the Nets for Brook Lopez and #26. I'm not sure how salaries fit into this equation but say if this is possible, don't we get the Center that we are longing for? Lopez is 22, a legit 7 footer, and can consistently put up points in a way Jefferson did for us last year. Lopez also plays D and rebounds and blocks shots. He is a better overall player than Jefferson and will be a top 5 center real soon. The Nets would not have to worry about paying a FA max money and they could also use the #3 and #4 to get Favors and Johnson. Then they could pick up Joe Johnson in Free Agency with money still left. We do not need #4 if there is no chance of getting Turner. Instead, let's bring over Pekovic as our rookie and draft someone like James Anderson at 16. Also, lets have teams bid on the rest of our draft picks which would total around ten million. This money could be stashed for either paying Rudy Gay's ridiculous contract or wait for next year and go all in for Melo!! Imagine 2010-2011 lineup of
A 2011-2012 lineup of
This lineup would have ten years to play together!!
