(Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty Images)   The Brooklyn Nets have been through a lot lately. Signing Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving and trading for James Harden will go down as bad historical moves by this franchise. Their departures set them back in a big way, and they did not get as much in return, especially considering how much trouble they caused. It also cost Jacque Vaughn his job, as he failed to make the most of the little talent he had this season and was let go midway through the campaign. The Nets had Kevin Ollie fill in as an interim head coach, but it doesn’t seem like he’s done ..read more

(Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty Images)   The Brooklyn Nets are in a tough spot right now. They don’t have a roster that’s good enough to compete, and they don’t have draft picks to get better in the foreseeable future. They’re not the primary free agent destination in town, and after the Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving fiasco, perhaps star players will be hesitant before joining them. On top of that, one of their few good players is most likely going to be out in the summer. According to NBA insider Frank Isola, this could be the end of Nic Claxton’s tenure in Brooklyn (via Legion Hoops ..read more

(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)   During his playing career in the NBA thus far, veteran guard Spencer Dinwiddie, currently of the Los Angeles Lakers, has played for five different teams and one of those teams twice, as he had two separate stints with the Brooklyn Nets.

The addition of Dinwiddie was thought to be a potential game-changer for the Lakers as he would bring some veteran leadership a ..read more

(Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)   During the first few years of his career in the NBA with the Philadelphia 76ers, guard Ben Simmons was widely considered to be one of the best players in the league, especially on the defensive side of the basketball floor. Simmons was named an All-Star three straight years during his time with the 76ers while playing alongside fellow star Joel Embiid, who became one of the most lethal duos in the league. Unfortunately, the partnership between the two stars wasn’t meant to be, with Simmons falling apart in the NBA playoffs and ultimately forcing his ..read more

(Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)   The rebuilding Brooklyn Nets have some interesting and capable young players, but it is looking unlikely that they will participate in this season’s play-in tournament. They have a 26-44 record and are in 11th place in the Eastern Conference, and for them to have any shot at reaching the play-in tourney, they would have to make up the 4.5 games that separate them and the 10th-place Atlanta Hawks. Regardless of how this season turns out, the Nets are hopeful about this offseason, because they feel they can land a star. “They feel they can recruit play ..read more

(Photo by Sarah Stier/Getty Images)   Ever since he was the No. 1 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, Ben Simmons has been thought to have borderline superstar potential, but it is now painfully obvious he won’t even come close to reaching that level of play. Since coming to the Brooklyn Nets midway through the 2021-22 season, he has played in a grand total of 57 games, partly due to a back condition. He has been declared out for the rest of this season because of that back ailment, and now there seem to be whispers that his Nets tenure may be over. If the Nets do actually buy out the remainder o ..read more

(Photo by Sarah Stier/Getty Images)   After missing about half of the regular season last year, the Brooklyn Nets were hoping to get three-time All-Star Ben Simmons back in the fold during the 2023-24 regular season, and all signs pointed to that happening. Unfortunately, even though Simmons showed signs of his old form after finally getting back on the floor for the Nets, the end result was even worse than last season, as he has been ruled out for the season due to a persistent nerve issue in his back. With Simmons being the highest-paid player on the roster, the Nets are likely sick and ..read more
