Comment Opinions Please. Is This Good? Read The Full Description As All The Trade Details, Draft Picks, & Free Agent Signings Are There.

1. Hire Frank Vogel As An Assistant Coach

Why ?: Defense, Defense, & Defense. The Nets need someone alongside Nash to set up defensive game plans for a roster that has struggled on that side of the court.

2. Deal Joe Harris & PHI 2027 1st(Top 8 Protected) To The Orlando Magic For Mo Bamba In A Sign & Trade Worth $60 Million Over 4 Years

Why ?: To acquire a long term franchise center that is a solid fit next to Ben Simmons. Mo Bamba is someone who can space the floor & allow Kyrie, KD, & Ben 10 to drive to the basket at will. Defensively, he’s a good rim protector due to his height & length.

3. Trade 2025 MIA 2nd & 2026 2nd To The Sacramento Kings For 2022 CHI 2nd(#49)

Why ?: Brooklyn needs young players now to develop behind their stars in order to guarantee a bright future after the Kyrie & KD era, as they have very limited draft picks to work with.

4. Draft Leonard Miller(SF, 6’11 210) With The #23 Pick In The 2022 NBA Draft

  • Quick Note, BKN deferred this pick to 2023.

Why ?: Miller would be a steal this late in the first round. He’s being hailed as the mystery of the draft & rightfully so. He has come out of nowhere & opened up a lot of eyes very quickly. Miller is an athletic combo forward that has great size & length to be a real dangerous threat in the league. Having him play off the bench & learn from KD puts Brooklyn in a great position going forward.

5. Draft Jabari Walker(PF, 6’8 200) With The #49 Pick In The 2022 NBA Draft

Why ?: He is a nice shooter from deep & decentet defender. Walker though does have much to learn, as he’s not a great ball handler or playmakers as of right now & also struggles with fouls, but the potential to be a solid two way player is there.

6. Resign Bruce Brown To A Three Year Contract Worth $39 Million

Why ?: This is very easy. Brown has been crucial to the Nets success these past two seasons as a 3&D player. There is absolutely no reason to let him walk.

7. Resign Nic Claxton To A Three Year Contract Worth $27 Million

Why ?: In order to provide depth at the big man position behind Mo Bamba.

8. Sign Jalen Smith Using The Full MLE To A Three Year Contract Worth $21 Million

Why ?: Smith is someone who played well after being dealt to Indiana this offseason. He’s a young big man that can provide 3pt shooting to a team that’ll need it around their trio of stars The Nets can offer him more money than the Pacers, & he’d be a solid choice to have as a backup to Ben Simmons at the PF position or as a small ball five next to Simmons.

9. Resign David Duke Jr To A Three Year Contract Worth $4.5 Million

Why ?: Part of their young core going forward along with Thomas, Miller, Walker, Smith, Claxton, & Sharpe to make sure Brooklyn has something to work with after KD & Kyrie are long gone.

10. Resign Kessler Edwards To A Three Year Contract Worth $4.5 Million

Why ?: Part of their young core going forward along with Thomas, Miller, Walker, Smith, Claxton, & Sharpe to make sure Brooklyn has something to work with after KD & Kyrie are long gone.
