Default New Nets Owner may want Maurizio Gherardini

Raptors fans dreaming for an upgrade in the point guard position. Hello Devin Harris. Also, how about a more tradional center. Hello Brook Lopez. Considering Maurizio's love affair with Bargnani, sell Bargnani high, and acquire one of these young assets. New Nets Owner thinks Maurizio is the "Jerry West of Europe":

"Mikhail Prokhorov hasn't indicated his plans to league officials. But there is already talk in GM circles that, given the Nets' infamous start, he could very well come in, clean house and hire his own basketball brain trust. Start fresh. He's known to be a huge fan of Maurizio Gherardini, the Toronto Raptors senior VP. Gherardini's legendary work in Italy, running perennial champ Benetton Treviso, accounted for his nickname, "The Jerry West of Europe.""
