They will also be without a shooting guard or backup PF/C. Shareef makes them better in the half court, but weaker on the break and weaker defensively. You have to give up another starter and your 6/7th man to get him. They'd be much better with him than without him at this point, but unless they get a quality 2 and some decent front court depth with their mid-level exception, and who knows if the Rat will use it, they're still not better than they were at the end of the season. Kittles is no star, but they Nets will have have lost 2 of their best fast break players on a fast break team.
