The Brooklyn Nets Approach in Restricted Free Agency

The Brooklyn Nets Approach in Restricted Free Agency

  Is there a brilliant method of madness in Brooklyn Nets GM Sean Marks’ approach in pursuing Restricted Free Agents (RFA)? The Nets has struck out 0-3 in chasing RFAs (Alan Crabbe, Tyler Johnson, Donatas Motiejunas) and is waiting on Washington Wizards to match their $106M max offer sheet to Otto Porter Jr. The Wizards is expected to match the offer after withdrawing qualifying RFA offer to Bojan Bogdanovic who proceeded to sign with Indiana Pacers for $21M for 2 years (he was reportedly looking for $15M/yr deal with the Wizards). Ironically, the Nets previously traded Bojan to the Wizards but now the Wizards has to let him go in order to keep the Nets from signing Porter. The ne... »

The Old and New Faces of Brooklyn Nets After 2017 NBA Draft

The Old and New Faces of Brooklyn Nets After 2017 NBA Draft

In 2017, Brooklyn Nets finally bid farewell to their storied franchise center, Brook Lopez, after he spent nine memorable seasons with New Jersey Nets and Brooklyn Nets. Brook has been the subject of trade rumors in the past few seasons but was only recently got traded for his $21.6M expiring contract to Los Angeles Lakers plus the 27th draft pick to bring Timothy Mozgov and D’Angelo Russell (a young PG/SG, 2015 2nd draft pick) to Brooklyn. GM Sean Marks received many praises around the league for orchestrating this “salary dump” trade to absorb Mozgov’s bad contract of $16M/yr for the next three years but receiving an undervalued 2015 2nd draft pick in Russell as a v... »

G82 Nets Rest 6 Players in the Final Game against the Bulls

    Brooklyn Nets decided to rest 6 players in the final game of the 2016-17 season, possibly to use the last game to evaluate several players. The Nets announced Trevor Booker, Jeremy Lin and Brook Lopez will sit out due to rest, while injuries will sideline Quincy Acy (ankle), Joe Harris (shoulder) and Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring). Both Brook Lopez and Jeremy Lin had a memorable game in a near comeback in the 105-114 loss against the Boston Celtics. Brook became the all-time leading scorer for the Nets franchise with 10,444 total – 25 on the night. Jeremy broke his career high rebounds with 12 and both his free throws made and attempt (16-17).

G81 Nets Attempt to Spoil Celtics’ Chance of #1 Seed

G81 Nets Attempt to Spoil Celtics’ Chance of #1 Seed

Nets truly enjoyed ruining playoff team’s chances at the end of the season and they pulled a great 107-106 comeback win with 10-0 run in the fourth quarter against the Bulls. LeVert, Rondae-Hollis Jefferson, and Spence Dinwiddie played exceptionally well to shock the Bulls. Jeremy Lin started well but slowed down with his shooting but still contributed 12 points, 7 assists, 6 rebounds, 3 steals in 29 min (4-14 shooting, 2-4 from three-point land). It is encouraging see younger teammates can step up to close the game when Brook Lopez (13pts/4reb/1ast) and Jeremy Lin slowed down towards the end. It is a testament to the Nets team growth to develop younger players. It will only help to ma... »

G80 Nets Tries To Tame the Surging Bulls to Reach 20 Wins

G80 Nets Tries To Tame the Surging Bulls to Reach 20 Wins

Nets lost to the Magic on the road 107-115 and failed to extend their winning streak to four. Coach Kenny Atkinson decided to rest Trevor Booker and KJ McDaniels to give Justin Hamilton more playing time before the season ends. That decision probably costed them a winnable game because both Booker and McDaniels have been playing extremely well, especially on the defensive end. Jeremy Lin played exceptionally well to finish with 32 points, 3 assists, 5 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 block with excellent 11-20 shooting, and 5-9 three-point shooting. But Brook Lopez had an off game to finish with 10 points on 4-13 shooting. Nets vs Bulls Matchup   Bulls are in the middle of playoff hunt, being tied... »
