Jarrett Jack scored 13 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and one three in Friday's loss, and he could be in line for more playing time if Deron Williams' calf injury is serious.
The Scoop:Williams is probably heading for an MRI and he's not the most durable guy around, so Jack makes sense as a speculative add. Just keep in mind that he has been pretty terrible lately, but that could be a function of being a secondary player next to two guys in Williams and Joe Johnson that dominate the ball.
The Scoop:This is good news, and the Nets are optimistic that he won't miss too much time. Williams obviously didn't practice on Saturday, but he is expected to be evaluated daily. Check back before tip-off on Sunday, but don't count on him playing in this one. Jarrett Jack would be the main beneficiary if Williams sits, and is worth a look in most leagues.
The Scoop:Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting it, so we know that there is some traction here. Talks are reportedly ongoing, but it is still unclear what other players are involved. Darren Collison would likely have to be included in any deal, but one obstacle to the talks is Sacramento's desire to obtain Mason Plumlee, who the Nets are enamored with. We will let you know if any further developments occur. Stay tuned.
