First thing, you can have all the money you want, but if there Ian't room under the cap it makes no difference. The nets have deron Williams, brook Lopez and Joe Johnson signed to max deals, not to mention Gerald walace, so this team isn't changing much.
Second, elite players win nba championships, and deron Williams is an elite pg, and not an elite player. Only way at around this is to have multiple all stars (3 or more) and Phil Jackson knows this. He was interested in LA cause he knew he could win there. Brooklyn at best is an easy second round out and no amount if cash will convince Phil to go there and waste his time.
