Not a good fit on the Nets because of his lack of quickness. He's also pretty lazy so it will result in a loss of intensity having 2 lazy guys in the starting lineup (Carter). The Nets still look very good because of how weak the East is. Carter just has to play better in the playoffs.

I kinda like this because he's better then Jason Collins is. Plus I have a feeling that Jamal Magloire will come to trainning camp with a new attitude and in shape because I think he realizes that is playing days will not live forever and hes going to be in a good oppurtunity in New Jersey.

Could signing for the Nets, they get a strong guy on the inside who can rebound and score when need be, Nenad and Collins werent getting it done.

I wouldn't say that Nenad wasn't getting it done, he was just injured for most of last season. Magloire is a better fit at the center position then Collins is, Magloire brings more to the table. He might lack quickness, but he's a warrior on the offensive rebounds. He's going to improve the Nets in so many different ways.

good pickup by the Nets....they needed a big man, and added depth in that position. im interested in seeing how good he will work with Kidd/Carter next season.
