There have been a lot of ups and downs for the Brooklyn Nets throughout the last few NBA seasons. There must be some tough decisions made in the offseason.

If enough teams want to reshape their rosters, that could turn this trade season into a frenzy.
Could Rudy Gobert be headed for the Eastern Conference?
Richard Jefferson Says Shaquille O'Neal Would 'Dominate' Rudy Gobert If They Played In The Same Era: "No. Shaq Will Dominate Anybody. He's Not Lying."
