Brooklyn Nets Free Agency Rumors: Korver Out, Who's In?

Updated: July 3, 2013

NBA Free Agency is in full force and names are being thrown around left and right with certain buzz words like “sources” and “interest.”

Some mid-level players are starting to get way too much money as teams frantically look to upgrade their teams and not be left without any of the free agents to show their fan bases.

Players like Martell Webster, Chase Budinger, OJ Mayo, Kevin Martin, and now Kyle Korver are striking it rich on multi-year deals from lower echelon teams that will be in the lottery.

Korver is the one free agent that was directly tied to the Nets on Monday when Deron Williams tweeted to Korver about joining him. The two went back and forth a few times and it looked early on that Korver would be a possibility to take the mini-midelevel exception from Brooklyn.

The past few days have changed things for Korver as money is being thrown around by teams and he decided tonight to cash in and agree to a four-year 24 million contract from his current team, the Atlanta Hawks.

What are the latest free agent rumors that surround your Brooklyn Nets?

One named that has been linked to the Nets the last day and a half is Marco Bellenelli previously of the Chicago Bulls. There have been differing reports as to whether there really is interest or just posturing by his agent.

The most recent news has the Nets showing interest in Kenyon Martin, Antawn Jamison, and even Chauncey Billups.

Martin would be a welcome addition for all Nets fans but it would mean Brooklyn would have to do something with Reggie Evans or another power forward. Martins energy and passion would definitely be a welcome sight at Barclays Center and he would be able to come back home to where he was drafted and had his best seasons. Long shot but nice to think bout.
