@WojYahooNBA reporting Nets prepared to offer Nene 4-year, $60 mil-$65 mil contract. That's out of the Pacers' price range.

I disagree. He's as good as a Chris Bosh. Guys get overpaid all the time, but it's not egregious.

I'd rather have chandler who's getting less. And most people are saying he's not worth that either. To me it's too much.

These teams seriously regret throwing this money around by next year.

Over 15 million a year for a guy who's best season was 15 - 8?

I think there just doing it so they can get Nene to come so they trade him to Orlando for Dwight.

i think the plan is to have him play with dwight and move brooks. nene/howard front court would be able to box-out the titanic

Nice attempted bait. ;)

NJ is insane.... but I guess that SOMEONE is going to pay these guys. Oh well.

15 is a bit much, but 12-13 isn't out of reach of a reasonable amount for Nene. His D is a bit questionable at times, but most stars play inconsistent D.

Ideally he'd be making Bargs-type money ($9-11M) but he's fortunate that he's a C who's ship has come in in the right year.

I'm really curious to see what Gasol is going to get. All fronts have been very quiet in regards to him.

I like guys like Nene that can play both PF and C.... it really helps the flexibility of a team.... this weak FA crop has helped the C's though.

thats the question right there...
IMO, Gasol is the best player (youngest, most upside) of all 3 of the big named FA centers available this year. funny thing is, he'll get the least by far. how the hell does Nene get 15 million? whacko!
