It was the start of the season. After a 2-5 start, Brooklyn fired Steve Nash as head coach and shortly thereafter hired assistant coach Jacques Vaughan as the new head coach. Additionally, Kyrie Irving was suspended by the team for a controversial post on social media regarding anti-Semitic topics. Irving will miss his seventh straight game tonight. On top of all this, recent trade rumors have been reported about the popularity of fans.
As long as Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are with the team, they will be the center of attention for the Brooklyn Nets. Both are constantly talked about in trade rumors, but nothing seems to happen with those rumors. Nets sharpshooter Joe Harris is a player who has recently developed and Brooklyn may be looking to trade him at some point this offseason.

Could the Nets trade Joe Harris at some point this season?
Longtime Brooklyn Net Joe Harris is being talked about in trade reports. Could we see the Nets try and move the sharpshooter before the NBA trade deadline on 2/9/23?
“Both the Lakers and Nets are among the top five teams for player salaries this season. Both have repeatedly exceeded thresholds in the past few years and are subject to higher luxury taxes. That’s why, according to league sources, the Nets are hoping to move the long-range shooter Joe HarrisWho is set to make $18 million this year and $19 million next season” – Rick Butcher
Harris has a career 44 percent three-point range and is hitting 36 percent from three this season. He also plays (26.5) minutes per game and averages (7.8) points per game. With some value left, it might be time to try and trade Brooklyn Harris. The Nets need a SF/PF who can provide some length and athleticism to the lineup. Brooklyn has plenty of shooters on the team, but many feel they are missing a key in their frontcourt.
