Quote: Manuel Pre-Game on September

Prior to tonight’s game, again, Jerry Manuel was asked about last September, to which he said:

“I think we’re gonna be fine.  Like I said last night, we have to win games…Call it the cloud, the demons, whatever name is good for conversation, but once the game starts, I don’t sense that (the players are thinking about it).  If you’re a fan, you’re reminded of it…We just need to make plays, pitch and catch the ball.”

He’s right.  Like I wrote this morning, “One at a time…Win tonight, get a better vibe going, and we’ll re-evaluate tomorrow – wash, rinse and repeat.”

For more from Manuel, including comments about what he expects from Johan Santana, tune in to SNY’s Pre Game Show, which begins at 6:30 pm EDT.

I don't think that 9.8 rebounds a game is accurate..

I like this deal and have few issues with it. I would like to see the nets get a second rounder or something. However, dumping two contract for one that expires in another year is not bad. It also clears another roster spot, which means they can trade for yet another player or call up some of their d leaguers.

I like the jordon hill trade if money is no issue I would do it but only if the lakers offer a pick or two that is a lot of money to swallow. Draft picks are the name of the game preferably lower first round.

I'm sure he'd be a good fit, but what boggles my mind is that 8 points and 9 rebounds is worthy of a $8 Million dollar salary in today's NBA.

@jaymanjay Agreed.  Unless Garnett decides to retire after this season, Nets are going to be in Salary Cap hell in 2014-15.


This trade would put them in much better shape for the 2015-16 season though.
