    CHEAP NIKE RUN-Sure, the Nets’ big three isn’t exactly the Big Three,

    Sure, the Nets’ big three isn’t exactly the Big Threecheap nike free, but they’re also not that far off. Williams, Johnson and Wallace alone are reason enough to think the Nets could be among the most competitive teams in the top-heavy Eastern Conference. But if there is anything to be learned from the efforts of other hastily assembled, star-studded cheap nike free shoesosters, it’s that a team needs a bench to win, and the Nets, as it stands, are severely lacking in that area. HOWARD'S END?Report: Nets eyeing blockbusterHoward requests trade to BrooklynGardner: He's out-LeBroned LeBronHill: Why trade for Howard?Video: Magic GM on HowardGardner: Williams is Nets' priority All of Brooklyn’s newly acquired firepower didn’t come cheap, and as a result of their spending binge the past three days, the Nets find themselves left with very little to spend on filling out the rest of their roster. On Tuesday, before the Williams news came down, Brooklyn also agreed to a three-year, $15 million deal with Bosnian power forward Mirza Teletovic — who may well start for the Nets this fall — and also agreed to a sign-and-trade deal for former Clippers power forward Reggie Evans. But beyond those two, their big three and second-year guard MarShon Brooks, whom the team somehow retained through all its wheeling and dealing, there’s no one else locked in and only $20 million left to create some depth. The Nets also still have to re-sign restricted Nike Free 3.0free-agent center Brook Lopez; once you put his near-max deal on the books, there will be even less cap room left to build with. While they figure out that mess, the Nets still will be pursuing Orlando’s All-Star center Howard, who seemingly closed the door on an opportunity to join the Nets when he waived his right to free agency in March. Howard has rehashed his request of a trade to the Nets in recent days, but with little leverage on his side, he’s completely at the mercy of Magic GM Rob Hennigan, who doesn’t seem particularly inclined to appease his flip-flopping big man. But still, a deal centered on Brooks, Lopez, Kris Humphries (who they'd have to sign and trade) and future draft picks is on the table for the Magic, and if they can’t get a better offer from someone else before it’s too late, they may do the unthinkable and give Howard what he wants, sending him to the Nets and the Nets to the top of the Eastern Conference — while also putting them way, way into luxury-tax territory. Fortunately, the Nets have an owner with some of the deepest pockets in the league. Prokhorov is one of the nike free shoesworld’s richest men, with money on his money, and if a chance to build a dynasty better presents itself — and a foursome of Williams, Howard, Johnson and Wallace certainly would constitute one — he won’t let a little thing like a few million bucks get in the way. As it stands, however, there’s no promise of a championship from these Nets. But even without Howard, they’ll be competitive and they’ll be a lot of fun to watch. And given that the current incarnation of the Brooklyn roster is the result of a hastily assembled Plan B, that’s about the Nike Free Running Shoesmost anyone could have hoped for.
