The Brooklyn Nets look poised to win their first NBA Championship in franchise history. Anyone who thought the lack of playing time their Big 3 of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden had during the regular season would slow them down have been mistaken.
Brooklyn is steamrolling through games in the postseason, dispatching the Boston Celtics in the first round 4-1 and opening up a commanding 2-0 lead on the Milwaukee Bucks in round two. Even more impressive about the blowout victories over the Bucks is the fact that Harden was injured in Game 1 and missed Game 2 with a hamstring injury.
Brooklyn can now afford to let him rest as they have some breathing room in the series. You would imagine the Bucks would get things together when they return home, but with how they looked in the first two games, this could be another gentleman’s sweep for the Nets.
While the team is focused on their playoff run, there are at least a few people in the organization with eyes on preparing for the offseason. Brooklyn is capped out, so adding outside free agents will be difficult. But, the possibility of playing for a contending team is a selling point not everyone has.
So, who could the Nets look to bring on this offseason? Here are three potential free agency targets for Brooklyn this summer.
