Daniel Leroux of RealGM is the latest pundit to grade all 30 teams on their off-season moves. In a grading system that ranks team moves as "great," "good," "mediocre," and "bad," Brooklyn is among those getting a "great" grade.
The Nets had to go all-in this summer and yielded a pretty fantastic haul. Joe Johnson’s contract is onerous and could cause problems but it helped retain Deron Williams and gives them a backcourt that provides challenges for the other top teams in the Eastern Conference.
The one big issue: Interior defense.
