Brooklyn Revolution is a revolutionary podcast covering the Brooklyn Nets. On Episode 8, Sandy Mui and Alex Cuesta recap the Nets’ first week of free agency.
The Brooklyn Nets appeared to have a more patient, systematic approach to the free agency market. After not making any moves on the first three days, the Nets struck an agreement with highly-coveted restricted free agent Otto Porter. Free agency will likely heat up more for Brooklyn after Saturday night, the deadline for Washington to make a decision on the Nets’ offer sheet for Porter.
