Nets DEPTH CHART
48-24 • 2nd in EASTERN CONFERENCE
Before suffering a season-ending ACL injury, Spencer Dinwiddie was supposed to be Brooklyn's Sixth Man. With Caris LeVert also making his way out of Brooklyn as part of the James Harden deal, the Sixth Man role is now up for grabs for a squad that boasts arguably the best starting unit in the entire NBA.
At this point, it appears that this role will fall in the hands of veteran forward Jeff Green. The 34-year-old signed as a free agent for the Nets during the offseason, and he has emerged as a key player in coach Steve Nash's rotation.
Green will play an important role for Brooklyn coming off the bench, but with three bonafide superstars in the rotation, the Nets can afford to have either Durant, Irving, or Harden lead the charge for the second unit as well.
The early-season blockbuster deal that saw James Harden take his talents to Brooklyn had a significant impact on the Nets' starting lineup. The former Houston Rockets superstar joined Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in head coach Steve Nash's starting unit. In itself, this trio is enough to make Brooklyn's starting five the most formidable in the entire NBA.
Joe Harris, the 2019 three-point contest champ, serves as the team's starting small forward, while DeAndre Jordan gets the nod at the five spot.
