God no to Ibaka. He would be a morris 2.0 barely seeing minutes and being more of a waste of a roster spot.

Marks better make a trade for a big

Nets should be able to trade for Naz Reid. He won't cost more that 2nds. Can prob get him for a young player and a 2nd.

He fits so well on this roster. Only concern would be how much he wants to get paid, but I really don't think it would take that much to re-sign him.

Ibaka is washed. I don't see the point of signing him.

Somebody decent will be free during buyout.

Richaun Holmes or Naz Reid are two names I want but I'm not sure if we can get them unless they hit the buyout market

Holmes is owed 24 mil over the next 2 seasons, so i don't see that happening.

I would love Naz Reid and I don't really care if we can't resign him in the off-season. If all it takes is Cam and/or Sharpe + 2nd round picks, you have to do it. I don't think his value is that low though.

Looks like there is some discussion going on in reference to Naz Reid.

I would immediately trade for Naz Reid as well.

But is he ok being a backup behind Claxton?

If its for 2nd round picks sign me up regardless.

I think Mo Bamba would be another great fit to backup Claxton. And he can also shoot the 3.

Problem is his salary is pretty big.

What about Patty, Cam and a 2nd?

I'm kind of done with Cam anyway.

Yea we need to get Naz Reid, he kinda reminds me of Blatche who I was a fan of. And we need another guard/wing . Crowder or Josh Richardson works for me. We NEED to do something , we can't afford to stand pat .

We need Naz Reid. Get that Newark nastiness behind Claxton, Embiid and Trezz might get the sh*t slapped out of them next time they act up

Hes a perfect fit.

Can shoot 3s and rebound.

I think adding him and KD are enough to solve most of our problems. I don't even really think we need to add someone else.

Would consider buyout guys but I honestly like our bench as is.

Naz might become a much better shooters when hes getting wide open 3s constantly.

Playing with KD and Kyrie makes things very different. Look at Yuta.

Getting a propsect like Reid is intriguing to me because he is still super young and can be developed. Claxton is the future; no doubt about that, Harden needed to gtfo so we can develop this guy into what he really is and worth. Bigs like Reid and other young prospects are who Marks should have went after last year and the year before instead of an aging LMA and washed Griffin. Getting Reid and Barton as a buyout candidate will solidify the roster for me. I am on the Reid campagin, young and promising player with plenty of upside.
