Deveney: Nets prepared to match any offers for Nic Claxton

Veteran NBA writer Sean Deveney writing for Hoopshype, reports the Nets are likely to match an offer on Nic Claxton and he quotes executives saying the 23-year-old wants a three-year, $35 million deal.

At 23 years old with an abundance of raw talent, any team would be glad to have Claxton as their center for the future. But one Eastern Conference general manager says that the Nets are prepared to match any offers that the young center may receive from other teams this summer.

“He is not going to get more than a midlevel offer from a team like Charlotte or Chicago, and if that is the case, they’re comfortable matching it.
