Might Nets take a run at Thomas?
I'm told by someone with ties to the Nets that outgoing GM Rod Thorn (who's still in charge of spending their free-agent money) would have genuine interest in Tyrus Thomas if other options fall through. The Nets have misgivings about Derrick Favors' ability to start quickly at power forward.
The question still comes down to a team going to the trouble of front-loading a contract so much that the Bobcats wouldn't match it. They've already committed to paying Thomas a $6.2 million qualifying offer for next season, so obviously they're serious about retaining him, regardless of their payroll issues.
