Heard this on ESPN radio this moring. I guess it is on ESPN.com also, Stein and Aldridge is reporting.
If this is true, the Nets are no longer a threat in the Eastern conference. They'll make the playoffs.
So who is the 4th best team in the east?. I don't know. There is a major dropoff after the top three. each of the top three will win 55 plus games and the 4th best team might win 45 games.
