2016-17 NBA Team Previews: Brooklyn Nets

As we prepare for the 2016-17 Fantasy Basketball Season, I’ll be taking a look at each NBA team with their major adds and drops to see if we can pan for any surprise rotational gold.  This open is especially witty for the Nuggets.  We’ll be counting down from worst NBA regular season to the best, mainly because I’m still figuring out how to rank the Warriors… Brooklyn Nets...

Are the Nets interested in unrestricted free agent Dion Waiters?

The Brooklyn Nets have 14 -- possibly, yet, 15 -- players under contract for the 2016-17 NBA season. Still, they have some $21 million in cap space left to spend, if they so do choose, and very few tires out there worth kicking. One of said tires, however, could be Dion Waiters, says a speculative Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. This after he reported that the Thunder has rescinded...

Their best games - Highlights from the newest Nets

We started this last year.  As each new player joined the team, we sought out a video of his best game, optimists that we are. Sometimes, it was easy, with a lot of games to choose from.  Other times, it was more difficult since the player had little experience.  Or their best games were a few years back.  All that said, here we go again.  Enjoy. Jeremy Lin, 38 points/7...

Brooklyn Nets heading in right direction, despite matched offer sheets to Crabbe, Johnson

Sean Marks had one of the tallest tasks of the offseason, taking over as general manager of the Brooklyn Nets. The former Spurs assistant GM joined an entirely different situation. The Nets didn’t have top draft picks (the previous regime mortgaged the future for short term gain) and outside of Brook Lopez, the returning roster didn’t offer much. The rookie GM had to be aggressive...

Brooklyn Nets and the free agent waiting game

The Brooklyn Nets went into the offseason knowing that they were not going to compete for a championship. Sean Marks was hired as general manager to put the team in a new direction that would not have them forge their future to gather a team that did not have a real chance to win the title. This has forced Brooklyn to rebuild whether they want to or not. Marks has appeared to learn...

Brooklyn Nets: What the addition of Trevor Booker means to the team

NBA free agency thus far this summer has been absolutely wild.

Nets are proving you can tank without picks

There was never a right way for Sean Marks to rebuild the Nets. He took over a team with worse current players than just about anyone else, but without his own draft picks until 2019 traditional rebuilding flew out the window as well. A lesser GM would’ve made a bunch of high-risk moves trying to win now. And yes, Derrick Rose was available and there were attainable potential...
