"We've never had anything like this in my time that I can remember," New Jersey Nets president Rod Thorn said. "There have been big-time free agents before, but never this many teams that are trying to woo them. So it's unprecedented."
"We felt that outside shooting was a primary concern during this offseason," Nets president and general manager Rod Thorn said. "Anthony is one of the premier young shooters in the league and we are very pleased to add him to our roster."
