San Antonio Spurs Receive: Kyrie Irving, Nicolas Claxton
Brooklyn Nets Receive: DeMar DeRozan, Dejounte Murray, 2021 1st Round Pick, 2022 1st Round Pick Swap, 2023 1st Round Pick, 2025 1st Round Pick
Brooklyn could have another blockbuster deal in store if they were to send Irving away. This would certainly shake things up but it would also replenish some assets that they were forced to give up in the James Harden deal. It begins with DeMar DeRozan and Dejounte Murray.
DeMar DeRozan would join James Harden and Kevin Durant to create another big three. Murray has the capability to be the new point guard of the future.
The Nets would also gain three first-round picks and a swap. The return would not be cheap but it could be worth it for both sides. Especially when considering Gregg Popovich probably doesn’t have a lot of time left to coach.
Let’s break this deal own even further and see how both teams would benefit both the Brooklyn Nets and San Antonio Spurs.
