Special G League Edition.
Long Island Nets action heats up this week, with Media Day on Wednesday and Opening Night on Friday. Long Island which made the G League Finals last year, look strong again this season, with Nicolas Claxton likely to join a deep roster headed up by four players with 300+ games of NBA experience: Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, Henry Ellenson, C. J. Williams and Deng Adel.
In Brooklyn, the Nets can currently sign a replacement player with Wilson Chandler suspension now past five games. So far, nothing.
