A brand new addition a year too late
Fresh Start_338: Allen Crabbe to Brooklyn
With the trade to pick up Allen Crabbe from the Portland Trail Blazers; Sean Marks and the Nets have become roster dump central in the NBA, and I don’t have a problem with it. The plan to just get talent and throw it on the floor regardless of what the contract is; is a smart plan with the amount of cap room that the Nets have and the inability to attract any free agents this offseason.
The way that Billy King left Brooklyn after the trade that will live in infamy — Marks took the job as Nets GM being in a tough spot. The fans being as hostile as any fan base in the NBA, it can take a lot out of a general manager. The fans just wanted a plan that the organization can follow and stick too. The Nets didn’t seem to have a plan through last offseason and this past trade deadline. This offseason the “Sean Marks Plan” has been put into motion and it is clearly spend the money now while the Nets have it and try to win games.
The Nets now have D’Angelo Russell, Timofey Mozgov, Demarre Carroll, and now Allen Crabbe. The Nets also had the highest cap number at the beginning of the offseason, and now have probably three new starters. We will see how much production the new backcourt of Lin and Russell, with Crabbe and Carroll being the small ball small forward and power forward.
I am excited to see how badly we can mess up the Boston pick this upcoming year. It should be fun to grab a couple $5 tickets on a random Tuesday night and see the Brooklyn Nets compete to play spoiler.
