Deron Williams Trade: 10 Additional Players The Nets Should Target

After a long wait, Mikhail Prokhorov and the New Jersey Nets finally have a player to build around.  

In the wake of the Carmelo Anthony deal, the Nets have acquired two time all-star Deron Williams from the Utah Jazz in exchange for Devin Harris and last year's third overall pick Derrick Favors. 

The Nets then sent a second round pick, Troy Murphy and his $12 million dollar expiring contract to the Warriors for Brandan Wright and Dan Gadzuric's $7.5 million dollar expiring deal. 

Wright, just 23 years old, was the eighth overall pick in 2007 out of North Carolina. Clearly he didn't mesh with Don Nelson's up-tempo system in Golden State, but the Nets must see something they like if they're willing to surrender a draft pick and $5.5 million dollars worth of cap space. 

Even still, the Nets have around $18 million coming off the books this summer, and nine draft picks over the next three years. 

With these assets, they can begin to look at adding parts to their roster to solidify a contending team around Derron Williams and Brook Lopez. 

What follows is a list of 10 players the Nets should target either via trade or in free agency this coming summer.
