    Just horrific.. those picks won’t be any good till the Nets get washed up. That’s 3 to 5 years away

    6 1st rounders? Take it. Who cares if we don't get a possible superstar (ie Simmons). One guy won't win us anything. Just look at Harden

    I want to guarantee that we will get some good compensation, give me 5 FRPs and 5 FRP swaps, absolutely 0 protection and I'm good.

    apparently this guy is extremely credible...

    if our front office takes this horrible deal instead of taking Ben Simmons, this franchise is done.

    Well, maybe. The last time the Nets did this it blew up in their faces.
    If we make the trade lets hope those picks are unprotected AND maybe Kyrie f's it all up whining about his touches and shots, wants out, Durant gets hurt or....
    Ok, yeah, it's going to take a monumental disaster for this to fail. KD can carry a team to the playoffs on his own and so can Harden...
    If this isn't a three team trade we are F******.

    Hopefully leaked so we can get competitive offers. Enter NY

    Absolute garbage.

    Late first round picks and mediocre players.

    Tell me those future late 1st round picks aren't going to peak our interest. FOH. A squad of KD and Harden and Kyrie(or a trade of Kyrie) is going to compete well into past their primes. **** do we care about some late ass draft picks.

    Come on Danny, step up and screw Morey Sixers and the Nets with a Tatum package! I'd actually root for Harden leading Boston instead of teaming up with KD or playing for Morey and getting double screwed.

    6 crappy 1st round picks won't get us anywhere.

    New Orleans will have rebuilt faster than us via an Anthony Davis trade and naturally being bad while developing which landed them Zion. Harden, the MVP everyone around the league hated on and now every team is salivating to have can only get us role players and late 1st round picks which keeps us out of the 2021 stacked draft and beyond as compete for the 8th seed for the foreseeable future.

    Yeah, if those picks are unprotected in the later years, it's not terrible, Harden and Durant are not young anymore, and Durant just had a very bad injury. Irving is 28 but he won't matter in that scenario, even assuming he won't ask out in few months, he won't be enough to make those picks bad for us since he would be pretty much the only thing left in Brooklyn if they also trade Allen and LeVert. I'd still take Simmons and picks over that though.

    A harden led team in the east is guaranteed 50 wins for the next 5 years.

    2 yard line that ****.

    I'd much rather have KAT and #1 than NY or Philly packages. I honestly was against it because I didn't think Harden was forcing his way out. It's the best package available if it's available.

    if the 6 first rounders stretch out 6 years, then that would be when the Nets are bad as Harden and Durant would be near 40

    Um what exactly is a Simmons type player, what exactly has he done?
