New Jersey Nets will target Tayshaun Prince in free agency after the lockout?

Fred Kerber of the New York Post:

Two unrestricted free agents, Denver’s power forward/center Nene, and Detroit’s small forward Tayshaun Prince, will be the Nets’ prime targets when the lockout ends.

I’m not sure how credible this report is. First of all, it’s the New York Post. Secondly, I’m sure the Nets didn’t risk a $1 million fine just to leak this information now. So, if a credible source gave Kerber this information before the lockout, why did Kerber wait to publish it until now?

But it certainly makes sense for the Nets, who will likely have plenty of cap room and need an upgrade at small forward, will pursue Tayshaun Prince.
