Wojnarowski suggests the Nets would send the Blazers Mehmet Okur, Shawne Williams and a protected 1st round pick in exchange for Wallace. Moments ago Wojnarowski reported that the Nets have Blazers' shooting guard Jamal Crawford on their radar, so it's possible that this nearing deal will also include him.

Wallace is having a bit of a down year, averaging 13.3 points and 6.6 rebounds per game, his lowest totals in years.
