During the FA signing period everyone knew that the NEts where all in for Dwight and that he had a good shot to play with the best Center and the best pg in the league. They certainly got a hometown discount for him.
I really do think he would have been good here but lets not kid ourselves. He is not the leader that Dwest is and probably never will be. He's a lunch pail PF that is one of the most assisted PF's in the league.
Dwest spreads the floor better than him and limits the amount of double teams Hibbert sees on a nightly basis. Both are good and both have their strengths but one is more of leader which is what this team needed last year.
