Nets-Sixers — what else is there to say?

Bojan Bogdanovic Per-Game Statistics: 79 G, 39 GS, 26.8 MIN, 11.2 PTS, 3.2 REB, 1.3 AST, 0.4 STL, 0.1 BLK, 1.5 TOV, .433 FG%, .382 3PT%, .833 FT%, .519 eFG%, .550 TS%, 10.7 PER After a strong second half to close the 2014-15 season, many fans felt optimistic that Bogdanovic would take the next step forward in his NBA career. Whatever the reason was (sophomore slump, Lionel Hollins’s system, waning confidence), the second year Bosnian was very disappointing during the first half of the season. Certainly his performance improved post All-Star break, but there were still inconsistencies in his offensive game and limitations on the defensive side of the court that make you wonder if can truly be a cornerstone piece of a competitive team. For every 20-point output (or the 44-point explosion against Philadelphia) there seems to be a 2-12 dud just waiting to happen. At 26 years old, maybe this is just who he is as a player -- an inconsistent, streaky shooter. -Jonathan Griggs

Nets look for semblance of hope against the lowly Denver Nuggets

Will Barton


A former five-star high school recruit thought to have loads of untapped potential, Barton was mostly ineffective in limited minutes for Portland, but flourished in Denver following a midseason trade to the Nuggets. Barton excels at running in transition, and at 6’6", he has the size to defend three positions. But he’s not much of a shooter, hitting just 28% of his three-pointers in Denver, and he’s not quite good enough on defense to compensate. 


Barton is reportedly a favorite of Nuggets GM Tim Connelly, but the Nets may be able to lure him away if the Nuggets want to keep a clean cap sheet.

Nets look for semblance of hope against the lowly Denver Nuggets The Brooklyn Nets fell to 5-15 on the season after faltering late against the Washington Wizards on Monday, despite a good effort from Brook Lopez, Trevor Booker, and Bojan Bogdanovic. Of course, the defeat meant their third-straight loss in a row and that they’re are […]
