In 2006-07 the Nets were eliminated from the playoffs in the Semifinals, losing in six to the Cavaliers. It was the fourth straight time the team had failed to progress past the Semis since making it to the Finals in 2002 and 2003. The 2007-08 season started horribly and in January the Net front office decided drastic action was called for. In February the New Jersey Nets traded Jason Kidd, Malik Allen and Antoine Wright to the Dallas Mavericks. Kidd had been the heart of the group since he arrived from Phoenix in 2001 to lead New Jersey back into the NBA playoffs after a sixteen year drought. In exchange the Nets got three million bucks, 2008 and 2010 first round picks and Ager, Diop, Harris, Hassell and trading rights to Van Horn’s contract. The team ended the season with 34 wins, the lowest total since Kidd came east.
The 2007–2008 season will be remembered as one of the most disappointing in Nets history. In addition to the Jason Kidd trade, the ever-brittle Vince Carter went down early, as did Nenad Krstic. The end result was a team out of the playoffs for the first time in 7 years.
The moves since the Kidd trade have never really stopped. In February Magloire was waived, in May a new GM was hired. In June Richard Jefferson was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks. In the 2008 NBA Draft the Nets used their first pick on Stanford center Brook Lopez. In July the Nets signed free agents Jarvis Hayes and Eduardo Najera, acquired Keyon Dooling from the Orlando Magic, lost Bostjan Nachbar to Dynamo Moscow of the Russian Basketball Super League and traded Marcus Williams to the Golden State Warriors for a first round draft pick.
The New Jersey Nets are in the Atlanta Division of the 3-division Eastern Conference of the National Basketball Association.
