League sources have informed The Post the Nets that they will not make any major changes until the close of trading. And everything that happened makes it worse: the nets hit the core pieces of Jarrett Allen and Spencer Dinwiddie and rejected them.
Until the deadline at 3 p.m. On Thursday, any changes that the networks make are likely to occur on the ranks of the roster or not at all.
However, do not expect Allen or Dinwiddie to search for or keep Kenny Atkinson's promises. He tries to stay out of the rumor mill and over the fight, and both players will likely try to do the same.
"How much of it can I really control honestly? That's exactly what I am, ”said Allen, before the Nets hosted the Golden State on Wednesday.
According to wrestler Houston star Clint Capela, the Nets were offered in return for Allen and Taurean Prince. But Brooklyn remained dull and general manager Sean Marks declined the offer. Capela was eventually transferred to Atlanta in a four-team, twelve-player deal.
In any case, Allen did not allow it to stop playing.
"I'm not really the guy who thinks too much about it, thinks too much about it," said Allen. “Ultimately, everything is messed up as it sounds – and it is – and that is not in our hands.
"I've always been told about control over what you can control as a guy. So at the end of the day I'll come in and do what I'm supposed to do here. And at the end of the day, if Sean or whoever wants to move me, then unfortunately it has to be that way. "
Several sources have repeatedly told The Post that the networks are unlikely to do any major business on the reporting date, and that movements are likely to be less or made during the summer.
Dinwiddie has sparked at least fleeting interest from the Hawks and, according to reports, the Lakers, according to the ESPN.
"I never talk [about rumors], It's so obvious that I don't have to say it. I think they know, ”Atkinson told The Post. "Because you never know. It's part of the business. That's why I never say that because you can burn yourself when you say don't worry and then something happens. So I try not to address it. These people know. You know the business and know what it's about. "
Before Capela moved, The Athletic had reported that the networks had expressed interest in John Collins from Atlanta and that Dinwiddie had been "mentioned" in discussions. But Marks has kept the core intact so far.
"We love Spencer as he grows. He keeps getting better," Atkinson said. "He takes on any role we ask of him and we ask him to wear a lot of hats. I really appreciate him. Me love him as a person and as a player.
"I don't look at the rumors. I don't. I have a blocker for any NBA rumors that come. I'm really trying to avoid it. I'm really trying to coach the players in the room. I'm not thinking of a possible thing- would-if. "
This is a counterpart to Warriors that Steve Kerr laughed at.
"Do you think Kenny told the truth? People say that. I've read everything. I'm both an NBA fan and a coach. I want to know what's going on in the league, so I've read a lot, ”said Kerr.
"It's not easy as a player to go through the trading week. I've been there. It can be very uncomfortable. I want to know what's going on so that I can at least acknowledge and talk to the players about it."
