New Jersey Nets Roster Report 2009-10-02

New Jersey Nets Roster Report 2009-10-02PLAYER NEWS:

--G/F Terrence Williams, although a rookie, already is opening eyes in training camp, particularly with his defense.

"I get a joy out of stopping somebody," Williams said.

And he's showing he can do that -- at multiple positions. Teammate Jarvis Hayes likes what he sees.

"He has a great defensive IQ. Reading different plays, anticipation is big at this level because guys are so big and strong, but for him to have the IQ he has as a rookie, he could come in and be a stopper right now at three different positions," Hayes said.

--F Yi Jianlian may need to play a huge role in the offense for the Nets. The 7-0 forward bulked up a bit over the summer and is far more aggressive and confident. And that, teammate Devin Harris said, is important.

"You can see the weight he put on and the strength. He finishes around the basket a little bit more. He's posting up (and) focusing on his 18-to-20 foot range, which I think he's best at," Harris said. "(Confidence) was a problem. When he misses a couple of shots he sort of gets down on himself. If we keep him aggressive and thinking less, he can be more effective for us."

--G Rafer Alston shot down an Internet report that claimed he wanted out of New Jersey to play with either the Knicks or Heat. Alston, acquired from Orlando, reportedly did not like being behind Devin Harris and Keyon Dooling in a contract year.

"I don't think the story said I said it. You didn't hear a quote come from me. It was a weird story. For somebody to put that out there right before camp, I immediately called in and told them that story didn't come from me," Alston said.


--F Eduardo Najera, who underwent successful sports hernia surgery in March, has been out for the start of training camp. On the second official day, Najera required a shot for an aching back that is related to the hernia. He was expected to be out for up to a week.

--G Keyon Dooling underwent successful arthroscopic surgery after the season to remove loose particles from his right hip. The Nets will move cautiously and he is expected to be ready for the start of the season. Dooling has not participated in training camp yet as he has been rehabbing the hip. He might not make the start of the season.

--F/C Tony Battie, obtained in the trade for Vince Carter, is at about 50 percent due to inflammation in his right knee. The Nets expect he won't be at 100 percent for about two weeks.


Terrence Williams, G/F, 6-6, Louisville (first round) -- The Nets love his versatility and his athleticism. In Summer League games, he showed what Nets drafted him for: rebounding, defense, passing. But he also has shown a struggling shot which must improve -- he was 19-of-56 (.339) in five games. Overall, the Nets were very pleased with what they saw in initial test runs.
