Nets meet with free agent swingman Aaron McKie

August 17, 2005 -- Each side likes what the other has to offer, so Net brass met last night with Philadelphia free agent swingman Aaron McKie, one of the remaining targets the Nets have to complete their summer makeover.
Additionally, league sources claimed, the Nets are close to reaching an agreement with Cleveland free agent Robert "Tractor" Traylor, the 6-8, 284-pound hulk who could fortify the forward line.

All signs were positive for the Nets as McKie met with GM Ed Stefanski and coach Lawrence Frank in what was seen as an advanced feeling-out session.

"It's a feeling-out meeting," said Nets president Rod Thorn. "He's looking for someplace where he can play and we're determining what he has left in the tank."

The Nets likely will offer McKie, 32, the NBA minimum — $1,138,500 for players with 10 or more years. McKie can sign with anyone except the 76ers, who designated him as their player to be waived under the amnesty provision.

McKie was waived last week by the Sixers. Because he was released before Aug. 15, he must wait a full week, which would be Friday, to clear waivers. McKie is viewed as a player who could back up two positions and is a strong defender. He averaged career lows in minutes (16.4) and points (2.2) last season.
