The Nets are banged up, but not on the canvas. The New York organization knows that he has hard work ahead of him to get out of the situation he finds himself in – Kevin Durant’s transfer request – but they don’t plan to throw it all away.
Since it became known that KD wanted to leave, there has been a certain feeling that the current project was falling apart and that it was time to rebuild. The opinion in Brooklyn is different. Obviously they know that they have to change a lot of things (players), but they also understand that they can solve the problem by maintaining a competitive team that, why not, allows them to remain one of the forces in the Eastern Conference.
Right here the name of Joe Harris comes in. In the hypothetical agreement between Lakers and Nets for Kyrie Irving, who also seems destined to change scenery sooner rather than later, the New Yorkers’ shooting forward was given as a fixed piece in the agreement. Well, according to Brian Lewis of new york postBrooklyn has no intention of trading Harris.
Such a determination would respond precisely to what we are explaining. The gerente general of the team, Sean Marks, wants to undertake a remodeling on the fly, and in that plan, continuing to have pieces like Harris or Seth Curry seems elementary.
