Brooklyn Nets can be said as the winner of NBA free agency 2019 as they managed to get the biggest stars in their team. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving both signed a four-year max deal with the Nets in the current free agency. The New York Knicks had the largest amount of money in their cap space, yet they lost the players to the Nets.
DeAndre Jordan was also exchanged with the Warriors in sign and trade deal, where D’Angelo Russel was sent out to them. But it is still a good thing for the Nets team as they have a powerful trio to lead them into the NBA 2020 finals. Whereas the Lakers are still struggling to find a third star to support the LeBron James and Anthony Davis duo. Here are the NBA 2020 draft picks for the Nets and the team lineup for the next season.
