Offseason

On June 26 it was announced the Nets had officially traded Richard Jefferson in exchange for Milwaukee Bucks players Yi Jianlian and Bobby Simmons.[1] After missing the playoffs last season and going no further than the Eastern Conference Semifinals the past five years, the Nets needed to change. Jefferson left after seven years at New Jersey where he ended up as the Nets second all time leading scorer in franchise history. On July 21 the Nets acquired Orlando Magic guard Keyon Dooling in exchange for cash considerations.[2]
