If we are going to go through the trouble of trying to do sign/trade deals and all of that why not target a guy who doesn't have health questions and actually fits our needs.

If he can be had for $3 million or less, I'd be down with it.

i would take him for a Gasol type deal, but the Nets would probably match that.

I am willing to take Krstic to be a sub, not the focal point. As much as I hate Pau, I wouldnt have minded having him here if he knew he was the third option on a good team and was paid that way.

I have no problem with Kristic if he comes cheap (less than $4 mil a year) and understands he is a back up. I dont want him as our starter just because I think we need to add toughness to our starting front line.

[quote]You have to realize there are certain players who just can't get it done and we can't just gamble on the glimpse of what they showed. Certainly Kristic isn't the one who we should gamble on.

[quote]CDR is big enough to play the 3.... he is Rudy's backup. And Sean Williams and Darrell Arthur can battle for the starting PF job all year.

In defense of PMI, Kristic tore his ACL 3/4ths of the way through the 2006-07 season but came back ahead of schedule last season and was not fit. Players tear their ACL's and if their game is based on explosive leaping then it can be career damaging but Kristic is a skills player who gets blocks by timing and positioning not inate leaping ability.

Plus Kristic wrote in his blog that he feels he rushed back from the injury too quickly and feels he let down the Nets last season. He is motivated to show people he is a better player than he exhibited last season.

I definately think he is worth a contract on but I fully expect the Nets to match any offer the Grizzlies would make.

New Jersey was pretty conservative with his play once he finally returned. When he played 25+ minutes, he put up solid numbers.

I'm with PMI, if he passes a physical I think he deserves a serious look. He's just about to turn 25, so he'd qualify for the 3 year plan...

[quote] I think CDR could get his playing time when Conley is on the bench by letting Mayo try to run the point. Homer or not CDR will have a long career in this league. (JMO)

I think Krstic is an interesting player, but I don't think our team is in the kind of situation (financially or player/personnel wise) right now to take a gamble on a guy with his history of injuries.

Just say no.

1. He is nothing like Pau, the only thing they have in common is they are white Europeans.

2. Pau was a MAX money player, Kristic would be signed for MAYBE 4 million tops.

3. He can easily be had for a sign and trade since he is not in the long term plans of the nets.

4. All star potential? yes, like Kwame Brown, absolutely not. Kwame has never averaged anywhere near what Kristic averaged in 2 seasons prior to his injury

5. The guy is about to turn 25. Like some other posters stated. he is definitely worth a long term deal with a 3rd year team option. Low risk/High reward without a doubt.
