3 intriguing trade targets for Brooklyn Nets before deadline

The Brooklyn Nets were on the receiving end of one of the biggest trades in NBA history about a week ago as they were able to land former MVP and 3x scoring champion, James Harden. Not only is this significant news because Harden is a former NBA MVP but because of the superstar trio this trade created in Brooklyn.

Now, fully healthy and back on the court, the Nets have Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving, which on paper, looks like one of the best trios in NBA history. The only question that remains is if this trio will work out well together

All three guys are ball-dominant players and while they are all great passers and facilitators as well, they were always “the guy” on their respective teams. Now all together, Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving each will have to be willing to sacrifice for one another if they are to have a shot at winning the Nets’ first championship. 

If there is one thing we know about Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden, it is that all three of these guys love to win and are always willing to do what it takes to do so. As a result, this crazy experiment in Brooklyn may just work out and supply this franchise with numerous championships and banners over the years. 

While the Nets now have three superstar players, it came at a price as they lost Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince in the trade to acquire Harden. For a team that once had a lot of depth at every position, this roster is pretty slim now, which could be a cause for concern moving forward.

In their first game all together playing against the Cavaliers, KD, Kyrie and Harden combined for 71% of their team’s total points, 44.4% of their team’s total rebounds and 76.7% of their team’s total assists, but they all also played over 48 minutes each in the double-overtime thriller. Fatigue is going to be a big factor with this team this year, especially if they do not go out near the trade deadline and try to acquire one or two other role players.

With Jarrett Allen gone, DeAndre Jordan is the lone big man on this roster, which could pave the way for Brooklyn looking to add another center at the trade deadline. Let’s take a look at three intriguing trade targets for the Brooklyn Nets to pair with Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden as we approach the NBA trade deadline.
