Brooklyn Nets Schedule in 2014 - 2015
The 2014 Brooklyn Nets have to be considered among the three favored teams to contend for Eastern Division of the National Basketball Association title. The offense this season will still revolve around Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Alan Anderson. And the main outside scoring threat of Joe Johnson is back to torment defenses with his constant barrage of treys. Last year's team won a great fist round series agasint Atlanta? I can't remember which, but then we lost to Miami in some close contests.
So, the Nets are going to be facing a wide open Eastern Conference. Lebron is out at Miami, and now Cleveland is the compelling franchise to watch.
Brooklyn Nets Roster
How will the coaching situation shake out after the long courtship and jilting by Jason Kidd. Brooklyn ultimately went with another first time coach, Lionel Hollins.
Paul Pierce will not be back. The soon to be Hall of Famer will be missed, however Sergey Karasev and Jarett Jack were acquired from Boston in exchange for Marcus Thornton and Tyler Zeller. I am bullish on the deal for the Nets, as Jack is a dependable presence and Karasev has huge upside.
They lost Shaun Livingstone to free agency. This will be the a big gap to fill at the guard position. Veteran Jarett Jack is an offseason addition who will contribute significant minutes at the guard position.
