The New Jersey Nets had one of the worst seasons in NBA history during the 2009-2010 campaign.  The team started last year with a 18 game losing streak and continued their losing ways throughout the season. The Nets had a horrific, 12-70 record last season, and to make matter worse, they didn’t even win the draft lottery.   The Nets had to settle with the third overall pick, and lost their chances of getting John Wall.  The team did add a new head coach, Avery Johnson, and added players like Jordan Farmar, Troy Murphy and Travis Outlaw.  No, the Nets didn’t win the LeBron, Wade or Bosh sweepstakes; which they had invested in for a couple years.  However, the entire state of New Jersey has something to cheer about.  Sources say that the Nets, Nuggets, Jazz and Bobcats are involved in a massive four-team deal.   In this trade, the Nets’ third overall draft pick, Derrick Favors,  and Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko would be sent to the Denver Nuggets.  In return the Nuggets would send Carmelo Anthony to the Nets.  On top of that, the Nets would send Devin Harris to the Bobcats, and the Bobcats would send Boris Diaw to the Jazz.
