After the press conference to introduce Yi Jianlian and Bobby Simmons to the New Jersey media, Nets GM Rod Thorn indicated that he isn’t done trying to make deals.
According to the Bergen Record, one deal being discussed would send Marcus Williams to the Bulls for Andres Nocioni.
Personally, I love Nocioni and think he would help any team in the League. Yes, he guns a bit, but the guys is relentless, plays tough D and isn’t afraid to mix it up. With Devin Harris, Vince, Yi, and others in the mix, the Nets don’t exactly exude toughness. Noc would help them immediately.
As for Marcus, as soon as New Jersey acquired Devin last season, the writing was on the wall, especially as Harris played really well over the last few weeks of the season, putting definite distance between himself and Williams.
