The Brooklyn Nets organisation is the epitome of good front office decisions. The team, for the past 5 years, have either not made the NBA Playoffs or have lost in the first round. But in the summer of 2019, things took a dramatic turn for the franchise. The Nets signed two bonafide superstars, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, and one year on are still looking to acquire more pieces to give their dynamic duo the best chance of winning the title. The latest NBA rumors suggest that the Steve Nash coached team is on the verge of signing Detroit Pistons guard, Bruce Brown Jr.

After dropping a major 'Woj Bomb' yesterday on the NBA, Adrian Wojnarowski wasn't done with sources from inside the Brooklyn Nets. The leading NBA insider reported this morning that Bruce Brown of the Detroit Pistons will be heading towards New York to join KD-Kyrie, while Dzanan Musa and a 2020-21 second round pick goes the other way.

Not surprisingly minutes after Wojnarowski announced the potential trade, several other journalists covering the basketball jumped in with their opinion. Give his ability to lock down opposition guards plus recent improvements in scoring makes this a brilliant acquisition for the Brooklyn Nets.

The Brooklyn Nets have an abundance of scorers. Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant are probably two of the most skilled players in the game and along with Caris LeVert and Joe Harris, the team looks loaded on the offensive end.

However, in order to compete for a championship, the defensive ability of a team comes into question and the addition of Bruce Brown definitely helps the Brooklyn Nets' in that aspect.

The Detroit Pistons are fully committed to rebuilding their roster. The arrival of Dzanan Musa will allow the Pistons to have massive cap space going forward, which is only going to help their rebuild process.

Point guard, Rajon Rondo was crucial for the LA Lakers in their 2020 title run. The veteran guard came off the bench and provided for exceptional playmaking. It wasn't a surprise to see multiple teams being linked with the former Boston Celtics player especially after what he did in the 2020 NBA Finals against the Miami Heat.

Rajon Rondo is at the tail end of his career. At 34 years old and having won two NBA championships, he could choose to help develop a young player's game, while helping the rebuilding team in its offensive rotations and playmaking. At this moments, as reported by Fox Sports analyst Nick Wright, Atlanta Hawks appear to be the perfect landing spot for Rondo.

The 2-time NBA Champion will not only be able to provide advice that will helpTrae Young's development as a point guard but he will also enjoy a bigger paycheck in the twilight years of his career than what he was getting with the LA Lakers.
