Brooklyn Nets: 3 Takeaways from the 2018 NBA Offseason

The Brooklyn Nets have been hailed left, right and center for their moves this offseason. GM Sean Marks is giving the franchise credibility that has been missing since the infamous Billy King days.

The trading of Timofey Mozgov and Jeremy Lin were absolute masterstrokes that freed up extra salary cap that allowed the franchise to take on bad contracts for assets now, while also creating valuable cap space for the future. Taking on the salary of Kenneth Faried and Jared Dudley were worthwhile flyers, especially if they can produce at a level anywhere close to the team’s previous salary dump in DeMarre Carroll.

Signing Ed Davis, Shabazz Napier and Treveon Graham to great value contracts will not only help them on the court this season but give them room to maneuver when the 2019 offseason comes around.

Taking all that into account, here are the three key takeaways from their heralded offseason.
