The time for a trade is now.

The Brooklyn Nets are now loser of four of their last five games and are beginning to slide out of their playoff position. Ravaged by injuries, fatigue, and lack of finishers has began to take it's toll on the team. With Monday afternoon's fantastic new that Caris Levert and Alan Crabbe will be returning to the lineup soon it is time for Brooklyn to scour the market for at least two floor spacing starting caliber wings. Up until now the Nets have been able to just get by with undersized players playing out of position at the small forward and power forward positions. Joe Harris 6'6 has started at 3 with Joey Graham 6'5 starting at the 4 or even the 6'7 Rondae Hollis-Jefferson are undersized for those positions. If the Nets could somehow make some trades to acquire two players with length an athletic D and 3 small forward think Harrison Barnes 6'8 and a stretchy 4 think Nikola Mirotic 6'10 or vice versa a Jamychal Green 6'9 and Taurean Prince 6'8 it would seriously add to the core that we already have in place. We already have what looks like our backcourt of the future in D'Angelo Russell and Levert along with Spencer Dinwiddie and Joe Harris that's three oversized ball handlers a 3pt sniper. While keeping an eye on cap space for 2019 might be in the Nets best interest I believe adding these type of players which might not be as costly it would be a major upgrade to this roster. I for am of the mindset that if we're not going to sign Kawhi Leonard this off season then it would probably be more beneficial to focus on grabbing a player like Barnes who has a player option for 2019 would be a huge upgrade on the wing as a 3 and D wing he has the size to play both the 3 and 4. By adding a stretchy 4 whether it would Green, Mirotic, Bobby Portis, Julius Randle, Dario Saric, Tobias HarrisrMarcus or Markieff Morris would certainly help Brooklyn with their playoff push and an actual playoff series. The cost will probably be a pick or two or three depending on which combination of players we would be able to obtain. But that cost would be mitigated by the priceless experience of our young core being in a competitive playoff series. I'm not big on trading picks but I am big on winning. I believe that the next step in this process is adding players who would not only be complimentary to our current core. All the players I've mentioned have been rumored to be available. So Ican't wait to see what Sean Marks and his staff comes up with. In Marks We Trust. Go Nets!!!!
