Marks Madness: Understanding The Nets’ Draft Pick Position March Madness is here! The NCAA’s most profitable (for some) venture has already seen first round action.

How’d We Get Here: K.J. McDaniels Last Thursday, the Brooklyn Nets acquired K.J. McDaniels in a trade with the Houston Rockets. McDaniels was acquired at essentially no long-term cost, with the Nets giving up the minimum cash consideration, $75,000, for the third-year swingman. On the surface, this trade may not look like much as, on the […]

How’d We Get Here: Andrew Nicholson Andrew Nicholson is the YMCA The biggest Brooklyn Nets move in the 2017 deadline bonanza was the Bojan Bogdanovic trade, but perhaps not for the reason you might think. The Nets’ second-leading scorer was traded to the Washington Wizards, along with Chris McCullough, for their upcoming first rounder, Marcus Thornton, […]

Patience is Paramount: Revisiting Billy King’s first year with the Nets Sean Marks recently celebrated his one-year (and a day) anniversary of becoming the Brooklyn Nets’ general manager. In his first year, to say the least, the Nets have struggled mightily. Marks made bold offseason moves, some of which have panned out, and some that […]

Sean Marks: The First 367 Days Almost one year ago today — February 18th, 2016 — Sean Marks was hired as the Brooklyn Nets’ next general manager.

Sustainably Sourced: Adding the Ingredients for an Efficient Nets Offense, Part II Rebuilding an NBA franchise is a painful process that every NBA team — aside from the San Antonio Spurs — must undergo. Without their own draft picks, the Brooklyn Nets must look everywhere to find players that fit Sean Marks’ envisioned program and the […]

Sustainably Sourced: Adding the Ingredients for an Efficient Nets Offense Constructing an NBA roster requires balance. The general manager needs to understand on-court schemes, but also must account for attitude and effort. Putting big-name talent that fails to gel usually results in disappointment (see Brooklyn Nets, 2013-2014). Assembling a high character team that lacks raw […]

75 Cents on a Dollar: The Nets’ 4th Quarter Offense Issues in Detail The Brooklyn Nets’ have lost games this season in every way possible.

Analyzing the Nets’ Offensive Woes Previously, I deconstructed Kenny Atkinson’s offensive system and influences in his first season as the Brooklyn Nets’ head coach. When it’s run successfully, it’s a system that gets everyone involved and works for open looks from the perimeter and easy buckets at the rim. The Atlanta Hawks, under Mike Budenholzer, have […]
