The Brooklyn Nets were one of the most pleasant surprises in the NBA this season, as they found a way to develop a young but strong core and even beat the odds to make it to the playoffs, but still, the lack of veteran leadership was pretty clear there.
Nonetheless, this team proved that they’re just a couple of pieces away from being a legit threat in the Eastern Conference, and they have enough money and assets to make a lot of noise in this upcoming free agency, according to the latest reports.
But, with Kevin Durant out of the picture with a torn Achilles, he’s not likely to be a target for them anymore, so who are they going to pursue in the summer? how could they become the East’s newest Superteam? Let’s take a look:
Ever since Julius Randle left the Los Angeles Lakers, he’s done everything to prove Magic Johnson was wrong. He’s a stud, and he’s played like one, and his hustle, grit, and grind in both ends of the hardwood are some of those intangible things all coaches love.
Randle is coming off a career year with the New Orleans Pelicans, where he averaged 21,4 points and 8,7 rebounds on 52% per game and 34% from three, so the Nets must definitely offer him good money in order to pair him with Jarrett Allen to create quite a physical frontcourt.
