Nets Moving On From Ben Gordon
The Brooklyn Nets have been swinging for the fences, trying to pry loose a significant player before the 3pm EST deadline, however with failed attempt after failed attempt it seemed Brooklyn might have to settle for their fall back option which was Charlotte guard Ben Gordon, however Howard Beck of The New York Times is reporting that a Gordon trade is completely off the table.
The Nets are still very much involved in the on-going Josh Smith discussions with Atlanta after being rebuffed by the Celtics regarding Paul Pierce and Milwaukee regarding Ersan Ilyasova.
Brooklyn wants to make a deal today, so you can expect them to be involved in something. The question remains are they the front runners for Smith or are they patiently waiting for something to fall apart and things break their way?
