The Brooklyn Nets fell short of expectations when they were knocked out of the second round of the NBA Playoffs by the Milwaukee Bucks. Injuries were a big reason for the team falling short, as Kyrie Irving injured his ankle and James Harden battled a hamstring injury.
That left Kevin Durant to do all the heavy lifting by himself, as Harden was clearly hampered when he returned to the court. He was unable to carry them over the finish line, as they lost in OT in Game 7 to the Bucks.
With their offseason now underway, the Nets will have to figure out how to upgrade their roster around their Big 3. They do not have many assets left after acquiring Harden in the midseason blockbuster, but there are a few avenues they could take, one being a sign-and-trade.
The Nets could use Spencer Dinwiddie to replenish some of their bench by agreeing to work with him on a sign-and-trade deal with a team over the salary cap. That should net Brooklyn at least one rotation player.
They could also try and package some of their salary and draft picks to get an impact player for the upcoming season.
With a few different possibilities, here are three intriguing players for the Brooklyn Nets to target in a trade this offseason.
