Chad Ford over at ESPN Insider says Zo will announce his return as early as this week and he's got 3 years and $22.6M left on his contract.

Well, I'd be beaming right now if Ratner didn't become Donald Sterling East and shipped K-Mart and Kittles away for virtually nothing.

So, Mourning will come back for 15 games, and in the process cause the Nets to be unable to take his salary off the cap after this upcoming season.

Heh, I bet the Nets are wishing they would have tried a little bit harder to get the Bobcats to take 'Zo in the expansion draft.

I'm pulling for 'Zo, though-- by all accounts he's a true class act. I'd like to see him have a successful year. On the other hand the Nets are in the Eastern Conference, so there's more than a little bit of me that hopes it blows up right in their faces.

    Mourning's Agent Puzzled By Return Rumors
    In the NEWARK STAR-LEDGER, Brad Parks writes that "if Alonzo Mourning really is planning to play in the NBA next season, his agent -- a guy you think would be in the loop on such a decision -- doesn't know a thing about it." The "Nets' seven-time All-Star center" reportedly is "gearing up for a comeback." But his agent "said Mourning had told him no such thing." The "real question seems to be what team Mourning would play for if he did come back, because it doesn't look like the Nets want him."

He goes on to say that Mourning isnt even in the country right now. You can find the entire article HERE.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Seven-time All-Star Alonzo Mourning will attempt a comeback with the New Jersey Nets this season, less than a year after a kidney transplant.

"I am feeling great and am excited about attending training camp and possibly resuming my career," the 34-year-old Mourning said in a statement released by the Nets on Wednesday.

"We look forward to Alonzo joining the Nets in training camp," Nets president Rod Thorn said. "Hopefully, he will be able to resume his career and play at the high level he has in the past."

Noooooooooooo! Why can't it be Kenny Mayne who has a show. Since I watch ESPN all the time, that means there will be at least one Bill Walton commercial every 10 minutes.
