Tayshaun Prince, New Jersey Nets target?

As I mentioned earlier, plenty of TrueHoop Network sites have debuted 3-on-3s, including Nets are Scorching, which identified free-agent forwards the Nets should target:

Mark Ginocchio: Tayshaun Prince has a championship pedigree and can still play defense. He’s also still good enough on the offensive end and would probably see an uptick in his production from having Deron Williams on the same roster. He’s the kind of versatile, all-purpose supporting cast player that I would really like to see this front office focus on in terms of forging an identity around D-Will.

Ginocchio listed Prince as his third choice, and neither of the other two respondents listed Prince at all. I just don’t see a big market for the 31-year-old,

    Don’t do it Prince, the Nets roster outside of D.Will is awful…Let Dumars sign and trade you to a good team!

    I thought Jersey/Brooklyn would be a good place for prince to land. They’ll be making a huge play for Howard when he’s a FA, so a team of D.Will, Morrow, Prince, Lopez and Dwight would be the best team in the east IMO. Obviously signing Howard is far from guaranteed, but there’s a good chance they could get him. Prince would be the ideal glue guy there.

    I think the comments about Prince not have much value reveal a great ignorance of the NBA.

    prince has plenty of value and several teams would love to have him. Is he going to get a huge contract? probably not. But that does not mean he does not have plenty of value to GM’s around the league.

      Who said he doesn’t have much value? You arguing with fake straw men again? There’s a difference between not having much value and there not being a big market for your services. At this point, there are only a few teams that will have the interest and the money to sign Prince. Plenty of teams would love to have him, but of those teams, how many are going to be willing to pay him more than Matt Barnes money? Maybe New Jersey, but that’s about it. Miami, San Antonio, the Lakers, Mavs, etc. all would have a need for him, but they also have money invested in players like Miller, Jefferson, Artest/Barnes, Marion who Prince would share minutes with.

      How much trade value a player has is dependent on how good he is (or will be before his deal comes off the books) relative to the size of his contract. Superstars have a ton of value cuz they are way under paid. Joe Johnson and Elton Brand are very good players but have negative value. Prince currently doesn’t have much because he isn’t on a contract. So if a team with cap space wants him, he has no trade value to the Pistons. If a team without does, he is only worth as much as the difference between how good he is and how good a matching salary they send back is. No way Dumars gets more than a late first rounder for him.

    I hope Tayshaun goes where ever he wants to go.  I dont care for a sign and trade.  No team will give up any significant value for Tayshaun when they can just sign him outright if they have the space.  I would rather save the money and have flexibility and roll with Daye, Jerebko, and Singler at the 3 this year.  The worst thing that can happen is a higher draft pick
