Did the Nets actually improve their bench this offseason? Last year was a painful one to endure for fans of the Brooklyn Nets and their 21-win season came without the gift of a high lottery pick.

Resolution: Be shrewd and creative


We're quickly approaching the one-year anniversary of Sean Marks' appointment as general manager, but it'd be difficult to consider his tenure anything but a success. 


It's come to my attention that many supporters didn't care for his Thaddeus Young-Caris LeVert swap, but it's the type of forward-thinking deal that'll make Marks a staple in Brooklyn for the foreseeable future. Should LeVert pan out, people will forget the year that they could've competed for the eighth seed with Young instead of capturing a blossoming stud.


From here on out, however, Marks will be challenged to unearth another diamond in the rough like Sean Kilpatrick. With ten-day D-League contracts right around the corner, Marks will need to make decisions on Brook Lopez, Spencer Dinwiddie, Yogi Ferrell, and more -- what does the effervescent New Zealander have up his sleeve next?

The Brooklyn Nets will hold a mini-camp for veterans from May 23rd to the 25th, reports Moke Hamilton of Basketball Insiders. Without a first rounder in June’s draft, the Nets will have to build the back-end of their bench through patchwork and low-risk contracts. Of course, the fates of Shane Larkin, Thomas Robinson, and Wayne […]
