Why The Brooklyn Nets Do The Deal 

Meanwhile, the Nets don’t only have a surplus of 3-and-D wings. They also have a surplus of draft capital. 

From other teams, that is. The Nets received a haul of first-round picks at this year’s trade deadline. With that said, they don’t have their own picks. The Houston Rockets control their draft through to 2027. 

So, the Nets have no incentive to tank. With that in mind, they might as well be big spenders with the picks they do own. Landing a primary playmaker would seem like a logical first step.

After all, the Nets have practically everything else. Garland would be joining Mikal Bridges and Nic Claxton as the core of this team.

That trio ought to be a fairly competitive one next season. 

Does this deal make the Cavaliers better?
