PG and SG : d.williams and j.johnson is a championship level backcourt

SF : g.wallace is a top 10 SF in the league and quality defender but is a bad fit with a big frontcourt that does not space the floor well, if he was next to a PF that shot 3's it would work much better

FRONTCOURT : b.lopez is an offensive star but he is not what this team needs to be a winner - to win with a guy like lopez @ center you need a KG type PF from years gone past - good luck finding the right PF that rebounds well and is a great defender to cover for lopez

lopez averages bugger all REBOUNDS because he attempts 20 blocks a game instead of staying somewhere near the paint & by the time the opponents shot hits the rim lopez is already crossing halfcourt setting himself up for offense while humphries is pulling down the rebound

the bench WEBBBS :

watson

evans

blatche

brooks

bogans

stackhouse

luckily for the nets they have the assets and the deep pockets to acquire talent via trade

the nets need a whole new frontcourt if they want to be legitimate contenders

b.lopez 13.6m, 14.7, 15.7, 16.7

k.humphries 12.0m, 12.0m

m.brooks 1.2m, 1.2m, 2.3m

* 3 1st round picks

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

a.blatche cant be traded (amnesty) and besides he is an ideal 1st big of the bench and r.evans serves his purpose for limited mins as the 4th bigman

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

the nets need a center who plays defense and can protect the rim
