New Jersey Nets Roster Report 2009-06-12

New Jersey Nets Roster Report 2009-06-12
MOST VALUABLE PLAYER: This has to be broken down by halves. For the first half of the season, Devin Harris was a revelation. Given freedom he never knew in Dallas, Harris led the Nets to playoff position. But Harris stumbled in January, then fought injuries. So Vince Carter continued the leadership he showed all season and helped keep the Nets in the playoff hunt up to the final week and a day.

MOST DISAPPOINTING PLAYER: Yi Jianlian takes this category, hands down. The season was supposed to be about developing the young players of which Yi was a big part. He was starting to show the promise that made him the No. 6 pick by Milwaukee in 2007. He had back-to-back 20-point games. Next, he had 16 by the third quarter Jan. 9 when he broke his right pinkie. He returned after the All-Star Game and was a bust, losing his starting job and his rotation spot.

FREE AGENT FOCUS: Maurice Ager is the Nets' lone unrestricted free agent. He will not be back. Trenton Hassell could opt out of his $4.3 million deal. He won't. The Nets hope to be players on the free agent market, not for the elite types, but for second-tier defenders and rebounders.


--G Chris Douglas-Roberts has been a regular at the Nets' facility working out, stressing fundamentals such as ball-handling since the end of the season. Douglas-Roberts was the Nets' leader in plus-minus this past season -- but he was also 11th in minutes played. Still, only four Nets ended up on the plus side and one was Stromile Swift (+1) who was traded in season. Douglas-Roberts finished at plus-37 in 585 minutes.

--F Eduardo Najera is progressing nicely in his off-season rehab. Najera underwent successful sports hernia surgery March 13, ending his season after just 27 games.

"He's doing well. He's coming along and he's back working out," team president Rod Thorn said.

--C Brook Lopez, the 7-0 center who turned out to be the steal of last year's draft when the Nets plucked him at No. 10, has teamed with Yi Yianlian and battled Yao Ming. And Lopez sees a lot more size coming out of China where he and Devin Harris were part of a recent Adidas camp for teenagers. Lopez said a lot of the kids were raw but "you just look at the size on some of them, they kind of make me feel small," he said, noting the pro route should continue out of China.


--F Eduardo Najera underwent successful sports hernia surgery Mar. 13, ending his season. He has begun his offseason rehab.

--G Keyon Dooling underwent successful arthroscopic surgery May 4 to remove loose particles from his right hip. He is expected to be ready for the start of the season.
