Brooklyn Nets:

    While many Nets fans are loudly pining for the team to chase a third star this offseason, GM Sean Marks says he has another top priority in mind. And that priority is Joe Harris, and keeping the free agent-to-be in Brooklyn. “Priority number one,” Marks said. “It’s that simple, yeah.” Marks was speaking in a 10-minute sit down interview taped Wednesday with YES Network and slated to air on the pregame show of Thursday’s regular-season finale against the Portland Trail Blazers. The Nets GM discussed a number of topics with host Michael Grady, and said Harris is right at the top of the list. “Joe, I think we’ve talked about plenty of times.

    In the midst of the ongoing Orlando bubble, rumors have started to swirl around the Philadelphia 76ers and the future of franchise cornerstones Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. With their failure to live up to expectations from a legitimate title contender in the Eastern Conference, some people believe that the Sixers might finally consider breaking their young superstar duo this fall. If they decide to move Embiid instead of Simmons, the Brooklyn Nets are among the teams who are highly expected to make an immediate call to the Sixers in the 2020 offseason. Since acquiring Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving last summer, the Nets have been active on the market searching for their third superstar. Armed with several young and...
    Will Devin Booker join forces with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant in Brooklyn next season? All-Star Devin Booker may be currently focused on helping the Phoenix Suns earn the final playoff spot in the Western Conference in the Orlando bubble, but rumors have already started to circulate around his future with the team. With their inability to surround him with a quality supporting cast, most people expect him to follow the footsteps of other disgruntled superstars and start finding his way out of Phoenix in the 2020 offseason. Once he becomes officially available on the trading block, several teams who are in dire need of additional star power to contend for the NBA championship title in the 2020-21 NBA season...

    Giannis Antetokounmpo and the league-leading Milwaukee Bucks will have to wait at least another game to wrap up the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. That’s because the short-handed Brooklyn Nets pulled off the biggest against-the-spread upset the NBA has seen in 27 years with a stunning 119-116 victory over the Bucks Tuesday afternoon at the league’s bubble site in Orlando, Florida. “I totally do believe in momentum and the momentum of keeping your spirit in check,” Nets interim head coach Jacque Vaughn said after Brooklyn, which entered the contest as a 19-point underdog, somehow improved to 2-1 since the restart.
    Brooklyn Nets had high-hopes after signing Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Even though Durant was going to rehab from injury, Kyrie was going to lead the core of the 2019 playoff team to a successful year. However, an injury to Irving sidetracked the Nets. The team still kept winning and were invited to the bubble. However, since the coronavirus pandemic started, the Nets have been one of the worst affected teams. The Brooklyn Nets lost 7 of their regular season players prior to the bubble. Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, DeAndre Jordan, Spencer Dinwiddie, Wilson Chandler, Nicolas Claxton, and Taurean Prince opted out of playing. The Nets sent in their remaining starters with a hastily built team to fulfill their obligations....

    The restart has begun on a bittersweet note for the Milwaukee Bucks. After registering a straight forward victory against the Boston Celtics in the opener, they shockingly lost to the Houston Rockets. The Bucks also etched their name in the history books with that loss. As Milwaukee gears up to face the Brooklyn Nets today, fans can rejoice as the team has received a major boost. For their first two games inside the bubble, the Bucks were lacking the services of Eric Bledsoe and Pat Connaughton. Both players were diagnosed with COVID-19 just days before the Bucks packed their bags to enter the bubble. However, both players are fit and back into the lineup, Bucks’ head-coach revealed....
    Many presumed the Nets were throwing in the towel against Milwaukee. Turns out they had more fight than expected, pulling off not only the biggest upset of the NBA restart, but one of the biggest in league history.

    The worst nightmare for any sports-person is the acceptance that their career might be over. Jamal Crawford suffered the same nightmare. He was not signed by any team before the season was suspended in March. Jamal’s last game was on April 9, 2019. This game was one to remember because he scored 51 points for Phoenix Suns against the Dallas Mavericks. As great of an ending this might have been, Crawford did not feel the same. He really wanted to come back to play, but his chances seemed very slim. But a surprise phone call from the Brooklyn Nets changed his life.

    Brooklyn finally played a game that matters, a Friday restart against an Orlando team they had to beat. It couldn’t possibly have gone any worse. Right out of the gate the Nets faced the team a half-game behind them in the standings. And Brooklyn didn’t just lose – they got dominated and outright outclassed, blitzed 128-118 by the Magic at Disney. In their first restart game, the Nets fell into the eighth and final playoff seed in the Eastern Conference. And they look so shorthanded and sieve-like, it begs the question of whether they can even keep enough of a cushion to avoid a play-in against ninth-place Washington – or beat the Wizards if they can’t.

    Two losses and one win weren’t the story of the Brooklyn Nets’ three-scrimmage run-up to Friday night’s regular-season re-opener in Orlando, Florida. Instead, the trio of exhibition games the new-look Nets played at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex following a four-month pause due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic served as an icebreaker of sorts for a roster full of new players who are still learning how to compete together. “I feel we got better as the games went on,” noted Nets guard Caris LeVert after scoring a team-high 23 points in Monday night’s scrimmage finale, a 112-107 loss to the Utah Jazz in Brooklyn’s final dress rehearsal before Friday’s much-anticipated showdown with the Orlando Magic.
    The question that stands for the Brooklyn Nets is simple: Who is going to take the court for the team? The Nets are already without superstars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, who are both sidelined with injuries, but they will also miss center DeAndre Jordan, as well as Wilson Chandler and Spencer Dinwiddie. All three of those players were starters for the Nets. Caris LeVert, the third-leading scorer for the Nets, averaged 17.7 points, to go along with 4.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game prior to the season coming to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    Nets power forward Lance Thomas took a rather circuitous route back to the borough of his birth. The Brooklyn native spent his high school years in New Jersey, played collegiately at Duke, where he won a national championship in 2010, and has spent the bulk of his first eight seasons in the pros in New Orleans with the Pelicans and across the Hudson with the arch rival New York Knicks. Waived by the Nets during their original training camp in October, Thomas would have likely been denied a shot at his ninth NBA season had it not been for the COVID-19 shutdown and the ensuing slew of positive tests and opt outs that caused Brooklyn to reshape its roster.
    In the past months, rumors have been continuously swirling around All-Star shooting guard Bradley Beal and his future with the Washington Wizards. No matter how many times they insist that they have no intention of trading their best player and undergoing a full-scale rebuild, most people still see Beal leaving the mediocre Wizards for a legitimate title contender this fall. Once the Wizards change their mind about keeping him on their roster, Beal is expected to be one of the most coveted superstars on the trading block in the 2020 NBA offseason. In his recent article, Danny Cunningham of Complex named the top three trade destinations for Beal this fall. These include the Brooklyn Nets, Miami Heat, and the Dallas...
    A new report hinted that the Brooklyn Nets could be among the more likely teams to make a move for Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker during the 2020 offseason.

On the other hand, the outlet cautioned that he might be the next “disgruntled” superstar who might ask to be traded to a winning organization. Talking about Booker’s most likely destinations, the Minnesota Timberwolves were mentioned as the most likely...
