Interesting. After losing to the Clipps though, if I were Thorn I’d listen to those calls.

RealGM: Nets team president Rod Thorn said there have been calls about Jason Kidd but he doesn’t see anything imminent for the Nets on the trade front. He maintains help must come from within.

“No question, we have not played well. The record we have is the record we’ve earned,” Thorn said. “We need to play better. It’s not the fashionable answer and I know it sounds trite and cliched but if we want to turn it around, we just need to play better.”

As for trades, “I make it a habit to talk to GMs/team presidents as a regular matter of course and that’s what I’ve been doing [so] I wouldn’t say we’re actively trying to do something.”
