Coming off a season when he was demoted from the Nets' starting lineup to the bench because of his lack of production, Yi Jianlian might have played his final game in New Jersey.

Team sources say the Nets are interested in trying to deal the 7-foot small forward they acquired from Milwaukee last summer for Richard Jefferson. "They're talking about moving him," said a source.

Yi's struggles to improve his defense, rebounding and passing under Lawrence Frank didn't sit well with GM Kiki Vandeweghe, who engineered the deal with the Bucks. Yi averaged 8.6 points and 5.3 rebounds in 23 minutes per game, but was often privately criticized for looking only to shoot.

Meanwhile, in an effort to further save money, one plan has the Nets cutting their assistant coaches' salaries from $1 million combined to only $500,000.

Send him to Houston to play with Yao. I'm sure Golden State will want him too, that's just the kind of big man they like. New Jersey needs a future star at SG/SF or a big man to compliment Brook Lopez. I can't believe how many teams passed on him in the draft.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
