Nets GM King Optimistic About Revamped Roster
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Brooklyn Nets general manager Billy King is optimistic about a revamped roster that will debut in the new Barclays Center.
Two months after having only four players under contract when the free agency period began, King believes he's assembled a team that can compete in the Eastern Conference.
King said Tuesday at the team training center that "every player we added was added for a reason. I think we have a good team, a potential playoff team."
The Nets (22-44) re-signed All-Star point guard Deron Williams, center Brook Lopez, power forward Kris Humphries and small forward Gerald Wallace - all potential free agents.
The Nets traded to acquire shooting guard Joe Johnson from the Atlanta Hawks, practically dumping the rest of their roster to get him.
