The Glue Guys talk with former Nets GM Billy King about his time with the team.  We spent a good bit on the Garnett-Pierce trade: how it originally started with just Pierce and mushroomed into more, why the deal was made, what Garnett and Pierce brought to the team, why the Nets ultimately did not re-sign Pierce, and Billy's biggest regret involving the trade. Other topics covered include: Nets attempted trade for Chris Paul before Deron Williams, the Dwightmare, the reasoning behind the Gerald Wallace trade, clashing with Jason Kidd, working with Prokhorov and Billy's thoughts on what Marks and Atkinson are now doing with the team.
