The Brooklyn Nets missed their grand goal of winning a championship last season, despite the best efforts of Kevin Durant, who brought them within one game of making the Eastern Conference Finals. Their big three of Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving are lethal, and there's no doubt that they are viewed as the favorite for the East once again.

While star power is an important factor in winning championships, another important part of winning is depth. You have to make good moves to surround your stars with quality role players. The moves around the fringes are just as important. According to a recent report, it seems as though the Brooklyn Nets are in trade talks to make the team better.

Michael Scotto of HoopsHype has recently reported that the Brooklyn Nets have dangled DeAndre Jordan and a first-round pick swap in trade talks.
