Nets Make Deal for Gerald Wallace
It looks like the Trail Blazers are going to be wheeling and dealing before the trade deadline.
The team has agreed to send Gerald Wallace to the Nets for Mehmet Okur, Shawne Williams and their 1st round pick in 2012 according to Adrian Wojnarowski. The pick is only protected if it lands in the top three.
Wallace has a player option for next season worth $9.5 million. It will be interesting to see if the Nets would want an answer on whether or not he will exercise that immediately.
Both Okur and Williams are in the final year of their deals. So, they are looking ahead towards the offseason and acquiring cap space and draft picks at this point.
The team has also been fielding offers for Jamal Crawford with the Timberwolves, Lakers and Magic reportedly interested.
