Could David Lee Sign with Nets this Summer?

Nets center Brook Lopez really likes the idea of someday playing alongside current Knick David Lee.

And unlike some impending free agents who view the Nets as less desirable than waterboarding, Lee likes the Nets’ potential more than their 7-55 record.

"The Nets are an interesting team," said Lee, sounding more like Phoenix’s Amar’e Stoudemire and Memphis’ Rudy Gay who claimed they would not be scared off by the Nets’ hideous record. "They’re a clear example of a team whose talent level doesn’t reflect the record.

"If statistics work out, they get the No. 1 pick," Lee said, "They have a great center in Lopez, an All-Star point guard, Devin Harris, great athleticism with wings Chris Douglas-Roberts and Terrence Williams. They could have a big turnaround year next year if they get a good free agent and the No. 1 draft pick. It’s going to be interesting which direction they go."
