What do the Nets need? This is one the most difficult questions in the NBA. This is a team that has the highest payroll, has one of the worst records in the NBA, AND has no young talent. This basically means that they are dead in the water for quite a while. This is why I was shocked to hear that the Nets have rebuffed overtures from the Nuggets for Brook Lopez. The Nuggets have offered JaVale McGee, JJ Hickson, and one of their first rounders. I am not sure if the Nets can get any more for this guy. I mean he barely plays a full season, and he barely rebounds! What are they hoping for? But this goes back to that basic question: "What do the Nets need?"
