NEW YORK -- A slow start was not in the cards for the Brooklyn Nets this season, but things are starting to look up after a 104-88 win over a hurting Jazz side on Tuesday night. Missing four of its key players in Trey Burke, Jeremy Evans, Brandon Rush and Andris Biedrins, the Jazz could not have been happy to see a physical Nets side led by center Brook Lopez, who scored 27 points on 10-of-13 shooting and hauled in seven rebounds. The Jazz's offense was mired in problems as they shot just 37.8 percent on the night. Guard Gordon Hayward led the team with 22 points while forward Enes Kanter added 21 of his own.
If the Jazz are Riggin’ for Wiggins – and by letting two of their top players (Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson) leave in free agency and trading for hefty contracts (Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins and, to a lesser degree, Brandon Rush) just to get draft picks, it sure seems like they are – they’ll still…
The NBA has confirmed the three-team trade that will send swingman Andre Iguodala to the Golden State Warriors, guard Randy Foye to the Denver Nuggets and a trio of expiring contracts along with a package of draft picks to the Utah Jazz.
The Scoop:The trade announced Wednesday started when the Warriors reached a free agent agreement with Iguodala on a four-year, $48 million deal last week. Golden State cleared more than $24 million by sending Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins and Rush to the Jazz along with four draft picks and cash.
