Prince will be playing his first season with the Nets this year after being traded by the Atlanta Hawks this offseaso. The 12th overall pick of the 2016 NBA Draft spent his first three years in Atlanta, where he steadily established himself as one of the most reliable 3-and-D players in the league.
In the 2018-19 season, Prince averaged 13.5 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.0 steal per game while shooting 44.1 percent from the floor, 39.0 percent from deep and 81.9 percent from the free-throw line.
The revamped Brooklyn team is yet to play a single NBA game, but much is expected from them. Best believe that they will do all they can to meet or even exceed expectations.
