The Nets have their eyes on a Blazers All-Star big man for the second straight offseason.
According to league sources, the Nets and Portland have discussed swapping Kerry Kittles and Aaron Williams for Shareef Abdur-Rahim. While nothing is imminent, the Blazers are looking to trade their unhappy forward, who will receive $14.6 million in the final year of his contract.

Let's see...

Kidd, Jefferson, Abdur-Rahim, Martin, Collins (or Mourning if the rumors have any truth.)

This could work if this trade happens. The issue with the Nets is that with the Mourning kidney surgery and other factors, it was still the same team as last year whereas others (Detroit and Indiana) became much better.

I like Abdur-Rahim, and it could be a good role for him, with Kidd, Jefferson, and Martin as the team leaders, he could be a good role player.

You kidding? Shareef certainly deserves to be a starter in this league, and he's gonna be happy being on the bench behind Kenyon Martin and Richard Jefferson?

I'm not saying that those two aren't talented. I'm simply saying there are teams that could use a talented starting power/small forward, and Shareef would be a good fit on one of them.

Then again, not all of them are in contention the way the Nets are. I guess we'll have to stay tuned.

With seven years' hindsight...

During the 2005 offseason, the Blazers and Nets agreed in principle to a deal that would send Shareef to New Jersey in exchange for a first-round pick. The Blazers would then trade the pick to the Suns for Leandro Barbosa.

But Shareef failed the required physical due to scar tissue on his knee, and he was quoted as saying he didn't want to be a Net. He felt the knee was a non-issue, saying he'd never missed a game in his career due to any problems with it.

He signed with the Kings and played two seasons with them and only six games of a third due to his knee injury, that he claimed wasn't an issue. He retired after the 2007-08 season and was hired in October 2010 as the assistant general manager for the Kings, a role which he still occupies.
