He’s definitely a huge acquisition for the Nets, as not only is he a solid veteran who can provide a double-double on a nightly basis, but he can also be a mentor to their young center, Jarrett Allen.
Durant, a close friend of DeAndre, is probably one of the main reasons why Jordan decided to head to Brooklyn.
With the arrival of KD, Kyrie and DJ, the Nets are now legitimate title contenders. The good thing about this is that they are able to keep most of their promising young core. Allen, Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert will be great complimentary pieces for Brooklyn, especially if they continue to improve in the future.
The Nets have done a great job of rebuilding their team, considering the fact that they were struggling to even make the playoffs a couple of years ago. Now, they have a solid foundation comprised of superstar talent and young, promising players.
