Over the last few years, the Brooklyn Nets have struggled to be a competitive force in the NBA. The Nets have failed to make the NBA postseason since 2015, and the team has also failed to win more than 30 games in each of the last three campaigns.

Despite this, the Nets have been building for a brighter future by acquiring a number of talented young players, and the organisation entered the 18/19 season with the belief that they could challenge for a playoff spot in a weak Eastern Conference.

The Nets have managed lived up to the expectations, as a record of 21-23 is currently enough for 7th place in the East standings. The Nets have been impressive recently, and December was an excellent month for the Brooklyn franchise. The team beat both the Philadelphia 76ers and Toronto Raptors, and if the Nets are able to sustain their current form, then the franchise look more than likely to reach the postseason.

Nevertheless, the roster still has a number of players that could be moved on, and here we will look at three players that the Nets should trade away.

#3 Jared Dudley

Back in the 2018 off-season, the Nets acquired Jared Dudley and a protected second-round draft pick in exchange for Darrell Arthur, although Dudley was coming off the worst season of his career. Last year with the Phoenix Suns, the veteran averaged just 3.2 points per game, and shot under .400 from the field.

Despite this, Dudley found a regular starting spot in the Nets team during the early stages of the season, although his production has continued to be underwhelming. The 33-year-old is averaging just 5.0 points per game in 22.0 minutes of action, and Dudley is currently shooting his worst percentage from beyond the arc since his rookie year. Ultimately, the Nets would be better suited in trading Dudley for a fellow veteran who can offer more on the offensive end.
