The Brooklyn Nets stole the show this summer from their rival down the river, as they were able to get both Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to join them rather than the New York Knicks. Their main selling point was a stable organization that has crawled its way back from one of the worst trades in NBA history with a good owner, a respected GM/coach combo, and a young core that made the playoffs last season. Uncle Drew and KD will form one of the most, if not the most, talented duo in the NBA, but unfortunately Durant will likely miss all of next season after tearing his achilles during the NBA Finals. With that being the case, Kyrie will be asked to be the leader of the Nets next year, and it’ll be interesting to see how he does in this role after he struggled being the main guy back in Boston.

Brooklyn Nets Starting Lineup Analysis

While bringing on Irving and Durant couldn’t let them keep D’Angelo Russell, the rest pf that young playoff core will be back. The argument could be made that before he suffered a gruesome leg injury back in November that Caris LeVert was actually Brooklyn’s best player. With the whole summer to get right, LeVert could be poised to return to the level he was at pre-injury. Spencer Dinwiddie will likely be the sixth man yet again, but he will be key to sustaining Brooklyn’s momentum when Kyrie takes a breather.

With KD out, the Nets will likely sport some combination of Taurean Prince, Joe Harris, and Rodions Kurucs at the forward spots in the starting lineup. Prince was a consistent contributor for the Atlanta Hawks the past two seasons, and he will look to prove that he can do the same on a contending team. Joe Harris is coming off of a career season where he shot a league-leading 47.4% from 3-point range, and he seems to be an ideal fit to surround Irving and Durant and give the Nets some ideal floor spacing on the offensive end.

Perhaps the most interesting move the Nets made this offseason was signing DeAndre Jordan to a 4-year $40 million deal to appease two of his close friends: Durant and Irving. While Jordan was an elite rebounder back in his Clipper days, his production declined significantly last season on both ends of the court. Additionally, the Nets already seem to have their center of the future in Jarrett Allen, and it would make little to no sense to play Jordan over him. With that being said, maybe it was part of the deal that Durant and Irving requested that Jordan get significant playing time, but there’s no reason to stunt the potential that Allen provides.
