Blazers have reached agreement in principle to send Gerald Wallace to Nets for 2 players and protected 2012 1st-round pick, source tells Y!


the pick is the Nets pick top 3 protected and Okur is expected to be one of the players.

I don't understand how Gerald Wallace always gets traded for crap. Good deal for the Nets though I guess. I'm assuming they aren't done.

My goodness. Does NJ have the most short-sighted management in the league?

Crap? That could be a top five pick in a loaded draft.

The Nets are idiots just for trading a Top 3 protected pick. The chances of them finishing that low are slim to none and this is considered a loaded draft. Gerald Wallace is not worth that at all.

I feel bad for the top 7 player the Blazers are about to draft. History is not on his side.

Nets must be terrified of Deron walking. Still stupid though, can't see Gerald Wallace being the guy that gets him to stay. Especially since Wallace can just as easily walk. Maybe the Nets got him to waive the player option like the Clippers did with Paul.

I'd almost forgotten why Billy King got fired the first time round. Between this and handing out crappy, multi-year contracts (Outlaw, petro at al) I have been reminded.

Horrible trade for the Nets. You don't give up a 1st with only top-3 protection for a declining Gerald Wallace. Especially when you have the 6th worst record in the league.

Trading for Gerald Wallace is the Nets equivalent of the Cavs trading for Antawn Jamison in a last ditch effort to get Lebron to hang around. Wallace is one of the most overrated players in the entire NBA

How is he overrated? He's a very good player, odviously his is getting older, but i don't think anybody overrated him except maybe the Bobcats fans. I don't think anybody really thinks he's a star player...

This is strange. You must not think highly of Danny if you think Gerald's overrated. He's better than Danny at everything accept shooting.
