The Nets, currently mired in a hideous freefall, are rumored to be involved in serious trade talks with a number of teams around the League. One of the reportedly interested parties is the Chicago Bulls, and if it goes through, it would be something of a monster trade:

According to league sources, the Bulls have discussed sending rugged forward Andres Nocioni and second-year guard Thabo Sefolosha to the Nets for Bostjan Nachbar, Marcus Williams, Antoine Wright and Jamaal Magloire. There might be other parts in the proposed deal.

As someone who goes hard at all times, and actually cares about defense and rebounding, Nocioni would be a terrific fit in Jersey. Throw in the promising Sefolosha, and the Nets look like the winners in the deal should it happen.

With the way the season has gone for both teams up to this point, they almost have to make a move of some kind don’t they? Even if it’s for the sake of just doing something to show their respective fanbases that they’re at least trying.
