Brooklyn Nets: 3 free agents that the team could sign in the coming weeks
A young Brooklyn Nets team were among the biggest surprise packages of the 2018-19 NBA season. Despite recording less than 70 combined wins over the previous three seasons, the Nets managed to overcome their shaky early season form to finish sixth in the Eastern Conference with a 42-40 record. While Brooklyn was comfortably eliminated in the first round of the playoffs, the franchise used their momentum to lure the All-Star duo of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant in free agency.
The Nets also managed to retain much of its young talent, and are now fully focused on contending. While much of the roster is finalized, the Nets still have a decision to make on the future of Wilson Chandler, who will miss significant time through suspension. So, ahead of the new season, here are three veterans that Brooklyn could bring in to help fuel their title push.
#3 Dante Cunningham
The Nets roster has a reputation for their chemistry on and off the court, and Dante Cunningham would prove a seamless fit having recently spent time with the team. Cunningham spent the second half of the 17-18 season in Brooklyn, averaging 7.5 points and 4.8 rebounds over 22 appearances before departing in free agency.
The 32-year-old signed with the Spurs after his deal expired, and went on to find a regular spot in Gregg Popovich's rotation. Nevertheless, Cunningham now finds himself without a team, and a return to the Nets on a minimum contract appears to be a good fit.
With little interest from elsewhere, the Nets should have no problem completing a quick move for Cunningham, and he would provide an extra body that would add depth at both forward positions.
