The kicker? None of those three players are currently starters -- which means JR Smith and Miller aren't going anywhere in that deal.
Ric Bucher was on ESPNNews and said the Nugs and Indiana are the frontrunners for AI. He said our package is mainly based on Nene.
Not sure how to feel about this one...
Are those two related? Or is the Nene thing something else?
You'd think the 76er's would be leery of taking on big men with balky knees, and bad contracts. Though Nene at least has a ligament not cartilage damage, and he's 24.

Point of clarification I wasn't trumping for Najera to stay as he is just a role player. I just don't see sending all 3 away when we have lost Chump Martin for the year and try to use a running system. If we can keep Eddie I am all for sending Nene or vice versa. Not getting my hopes up though as this could all blow up last minute like it has before.
Yeah, but that's why I kinda don't want to lose Nene...Camby WILL go down. We need someone to be a Center. I wouldn't have minded Elson honestly.
