At 8-11, the Brooklyn Nets aren't in terrible shape this season. They're actually in second place in the Atlantic Division. But it seems as though Nets ownership and management realizes that they aren't a contender for the NBA title this year.

For what it's worth, the Nets have not expressed a desire to simply dump salaries and start the rebuilding process just yet. Instead, ESPN New York is reporting that they want to try and shake things up a little bit to see if they can put together a more successful roster.

So stay tuned to see if any trade partners emerge.
