Assistant Coach:

PG: Shane Larkin
SG: Markel Brown, Bogan Bogdanovic
SF: Rondae Hollis Jefferson, Sergey Karasev
PF: Thaddeus Young, Chris McCullough, Thomas Robinson
C: Brook Lopez, Andrea Bargnani

This is the Brooklyn Nets team heading into next season.

They have limited draft picks. But a lot of cap space.

Brooklyn is in need of a Head Coach, GM, and Assistant.

You're in charge. How would you rebuild the Nets (Trade/Draft/FA)

I would go after a system coach and then target FAs that fit that system, and then try to fill out their roster with young players that have had a limited opportunity, sort of like Portland did this past offseason bringing in Ed Davis/Aminu/Harkless/Plumlee/Vonleh.

Get players playing well within the system so that they can either compete for a fringe playoff seed or so they have trade value and trade them for picks.

McDaniels is a promising young player who doesn't get a chance in HOU.

Then go after Whiteside/Horford/Gasol

re-sign JJ, sign Hibbert

Lawson/Jack/Larkin
McDaniels/Bogdanovic
JJ/RHJ
Love/Robinson
Gasol or Whiteside or Horford/Hibbert

Respectable team.

I like this idea. Honestly they should just force feed Lopez and make him a 30pppg scorer. Get his value to an all-time high. They need to get back in the draft.

Kinda tricky. Depends if they can lure in decent free agents. If they cant then best to eat dead weight contracts from other teams for incentives like future pick or young guys tossed in as sweeteners while eating dead weight. They have no picks for a while since they gave them to Celtics for old guys. So now they are forced to win now as well. So they're in a pickle really. They have almost $40M in cap next summer. So they could try and bring in a few nice pieces to go along with what they got and try and chase 8th seed playoffs right away so the picks they gave to the Celtic be late picks.

Not sure what bad contracts that are out there. Even though league has stretch provision rule so some teams rather just buy out guys and use the stretch instead of the old days of giving up picks to eat dead weight. Other wise I was gonna suggest Nets to eat Wolves center Pek. But they rather use the stretch on him then cough up a pick let alone a couple second rounders. But who knows? Suns may wanna unload Chandler. Maybe they offer up future picks or some other asset? Maybe Morris? Pelicans maybe wanna dump Asik. But not sure what they offer up as a incentive though.

Seems like most the bad contracts are mainly centers. They could maybe start the rebuild this season with Joe Johnson expiring contract. Maybe Gordon and Asik and couple second round picks for Joe Johnson? Maybe Knicks wanna part with Lopez and Calderon and a sweetener for Joe Johnson expiring? Since KP be most likely Knicks future center. Lopez brothers get paired up. Maybe twin towers? They could over pay for a guy like Barnes from Warriors.

Nets could offer up the super max to Conley and see if he leaves the Grizzlies or not. They could put in same offer for DeRozan like Lakers did. They could go after Batum if they miss out on Barnes. Thy could be dirty and offer Clarkson some serious money. He RFA but Lakers reportedly wont match $10M per. Unless that changes. Nets could put in a nice bid for Bazemore since Hawks only have early bird rights on him. If Nets miss out on Conley they could chase after Cavs RFA Dellavedova. Cavs will be in cap hell and probably wont match.

Nets could be spoilers yet again and try and pry away Ezeli from Warriors. Yeah they have Lopez. But could play spoilers and trade someone later on. Nets could pry away Galloway from the Knicks since Knicks only have early bird rights on him. Also could turn into poison pill contract if third year is offered more. Read that in a article just now.

Under normal circumstances I'd hate the plan you outlined, but you hit the nail on the head here. They might as well brake the bank on a few "B level" superstars and hope one of them can can ascend to "A level" status. Max contracts are only four years now anyway. They have no picks for the next three drafts and they need to sell tickets to a reportedly fickle fan base too.

Hire Thibs, sign cheap youngsters with potential to two-year contracts (2nd season team option), hold capspace for other teams possible emergency trades, or for free agency in '17-'18 season, when all teams won't have so much capspace.

Nets should not overpay any overpriced FA. This team cannot be fixed in one season.

They have to try because it ruins the draft picks that the Celtics get from the team. That matters.

Alright lets do this semi-realistically lets look at the bright spots they got a scoring capable center in Brook Lopez got some decent players in Thadeus Young and Jarrett Jack and got untapped potential players in Thomas Robinson and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. Now going to Free Agency we need assets and a coach to fully complement these players. We're not going for a championship but atleast be decent so Boston doesn't get a high draft pick. We got atleast 50 million cap space we need to address weaknesses. Unfortunately I don't how to build a team around an offensive center that can't defend or get rebounds. Not much option...... screw this lets just overpay decent talent then and hope they pan out.

Offseason:
Brandon Jennings 2 Years $24 Million
Ryan Anderson 4 Years $40 Million
Evan Turner 4 Years $35 Million
Kent Bazemore 2 Years $16 Million
Roy Hibbert 3 Years $24 Million

Roster:
PG: Brandon Jennings/ Jarrett Jack
SG: Kent Bazemore/ Bojan Bogdanovic
SF: Evan Turner/ Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
PF: Thadeus Young/ Ryan Anderson/ Thomas Robinson
C: Brook Lopez/ Roy Hibbert/ Andre Bargnani
Coach: David Blatt
Better shape than they are now....... Got a rim protector, decent wing defenders and a scoring point guard to entertain fans? hahaha I give up.....

I live in Brooklyn and people here do appreciate them. It takes time.

Both are newly relocated franchises. They will get fans when they win more.

Brooklyn sports fans are die hard. And I mean DIE HARD. We loved the Dodgers.

Kevin Durant is a Jay Z Client for Roc Nation. Jay Z brought the Nets to Brooklyn.

Wouldn't be surprised to see the Nets make a huge pitch to sign him.

Durant will be the center piece that brings other stars to Brooklyn.

It's actually a fair trade. Young, McCullough, Larkin, and Bogdanovic are solid pieces for the Cavaliers.

Kevin Love would be an attraction in Brooklyn. He didnt work with Lebron. But maybe with Durant...

Durant, Love, Lopez. Love coming to Brooklyn means they can sign David Blatt. Also a Cleveland cast off.

Nets would have some money left over. Could see them spending on Brandon Jennings and Eric Gordon.

Jennings, Gordon, Durant, Love, Lopez -- Brooklyn wants to turn it around and we want to win. Solid team.

You have an impatient owner in a big city. Take it from a Knicks fan, there is no easy fix to their issues.

The only reasonable option is to trade Lopez to someone like the Lakers for a package of Randle/Picks.

Trade Young to a fringe contender who need secondary scoring for more picks.

Hire Thibodeau and let him fill in the roster with hustle players on short contracts. Ride out the storm and hope to develop some of the draft picks acquired through trades. Build a system and culture like the Bulls did and stay clear of selfish players in free agency.

Of course none of this will happen because their owner is an idiot and has no idea that building a serious contender is a long process and not an overnight occurrence. Again, Im a Knicks fan so I'm not bashing the Nets because I've felt the same way about my team until Jackson arrived.

The Nets don't have the talent to base a trade package for Love around Young. I might inquire about Lopez and a role player (maybe Robinson) to Cleveland for Love and Mozgov.
The Cavaliers can move forward with a front court of Thompson, the defensive stopper and Lopez, a better anchor in the middle who I think will work better in that big three.
The Nets basically get a marquee free agent start rebuilding around, and they don't have to worry about Love trying to bolt for several years. Move Young to small forward, let Joe Johnson expire and try to get the best guard possible in free agency. I wonder, if the Thunder fall apart, would Russell Westbrook ever contemplate being the alpa dog in Brooklyn?

I don't get why everyone keeps trying to trade the Nets Centers and Power Forwards when those are really the only positions they have filled for the future. Even if they were to trade Thad Young they would likely do it for a guard of some sort and give Chris McCullough some time to audition for the role at power forward. Small forward isn't a top need because Rondae Hollis Jefferson has shown he is capable (except he can't shoot). Lopez always got crap for not rebounding, but he has gotten a lot better at it.
It's pretty easy to see that point guard is the biggest need. When Deron Williams wanted to be a point guard he would get lots of people involved and the offense would have some sort of flow. When he wanted to play hero ball he would look good but everyone else looked like a waste of space out there. And Jack, Larkin, Sloan, and any other point guard they've tried to shuffle out there hasn't done enough to make the offense look even passable.
I hope they don't give Derozan a max deal. He would help make them a playoff team but I don't see him making them championship contenders. Conley makes a lot more sense.

This year is not next year. The Boston Red Sox bought a championship team in 2013.

They had a last place team. Money talks. The Nets can buy their way to the Playoffs.

They will. Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young is a good core. So is RHJ and McCullough.

Free Agents WILL want to play in New York. A big market basketball city. Brooklyn is prime.

People used to say the Giants would always be NY's Baseball team and then the Yankees came and won 27 rings. The Yankees didnt win their first ring until the 1920's. We are approaching the 2020s's. History repeats itself. Brooklyn, Bronx. They share a station. They have a simple logo. They spend money. A more professional brand.
The Nets will overtake the Knicks.

Totally agree. It's all about weather the Nets can build a brand that NYC connects with. Branding, Branding, Branding. That's what it's all about.

Do you live in Brooklyn? I know gentrification has changed it significantly, but how does it compare to MSG neighborhoods? Also is there inter-burogh rivalries pertaining sports teams?

MSG neighborhoods are not in the area where MSG is located.

MSG, right now, is sitting above Penn Station, which brings in fans from Nassau and Suffolk neighborhoods.

The Nets have so many options and so much money.
They will be much improved next season. Can't wait.

Even the Knick wont be as good as the Nets b/c they have too much money invested in scrubs like Robin Lopez and Jose Calderon and Aaron Afflalo for next season, those players will just decline and still pollute payroll.

Son, I'm a Nets' fan for over 45 years.

You need to calm down.

Where does everyone think the Brooklyn draft picks will land for 2016-2018?

Money talks.

The Nets have Lopez and Young to build around.

Brooklyn is a more populated city than Manhattan, more people.

Brooklyn wont be the B team much longer. Knicks 2 rings in 8 chances. LOL

D-League team in Long Island, State of the art arena, Practice facility in Brooklyn.

That is better than anything the Knicks can offer.

That owner who you said has no business owning an NBA team. He's LOADED.

There's a possibility Durant goes to the Knicks. A strong one.
There's a possiblity Conley goes to the Knicks. A strong one.

Either way the Nets have money a new practice facility and options.
The Nets have so many options and can truly rebuild in 1 offseason.

The Celtics wont want to swap picks with Brooklyn.

Brooklyn will rebuild this offseason and ruin the Celtics 2017-2018 draft.
