Lakers’ front office better act fast if the Nets’ superstar can sway management to bring J. O’Neal to Jersey.
NorthJersey.com: One of the kids at Vince Carter’s basketball camp informed him that Jermaine O’Neal said he wants to be a Net. Carter hopes management can make it happen.”That’s great news,” he said Wednesday morning. “He’s an All-Star. He’s accomplished a lot. If we can work that, of course that just makes us even better.”
The Nets re-signed Carter last month, representing their biggest off-season move. But they could rekindle talks with Indiana for O’Neal, who also likes the idea of being a Laker.
One source said the Nets will wait for Indiana to call. They don’t want to give up Richard Jefferson, Nenad Krstic and Marcus Williams for O’Neal, as the Pacers asked for in their last conversation.
