After some shaky performances at the beginning of the 2021-22 NBA season, the Brooklyn Nets have started finding their footing. The team is now 12-5, tied with the Chicago Bulls for the best record in the Eastern Conference, after winning 10 out of their last 12 games.

Kevin Durant is having an MVP-level season leading the way for Brooklyn. He is averaging 28.6 points per game, which leads the NBA, along with 7.9 rebounds and 4.9 assists. Durant is scoring at will, as the Golden State Warriors were the only team this season to hold him under 44.4 percent from the field and fewer than 22 points scored.

James Harden has begun finding his stride, adjusting to the new rules the league put in place this offseason. He has had some vintage performances lately, getting things back on track. For the season, he is averaging 21.2 points, 7.7 rebounds and 8.8 assists per game.

Brooklyn has seemingly now fully adapted to not having starting point guard Kyrie Irving in the lineup. Irving is still not with the team as he remains unvaccinated for COVID-19, therefore being ineligible to play in New York City.

The team has received excellent production from Patty Mills in his place, as it doesn’t look like Irving will be returning any time soon. With that being the case, could the Nets look to trade him at some point?

If he is going to remain unvaccinated, they might as well see what they could get for him on the trade block. Could the LA Clippers be a potential landing spot? Here is a hypothetical deal that lands Irving in Hollywood.
