Brooklyn Nets could be said as the winner of free agency 2019 by a big margin. While every other NBA team couldn’t even get one big free agent, the Nets managed to land in two-star players. Kevin Durant was the biggest name from the champion team of the Golden State Warriors, who went with the Nets team. Also, Kyrie Irving did as he announced and joined the team of Brooklyn.
Even though the Nets had to trade off D’Angelo Russel, they managed to get in DeAndre Jordan in their squad. The team looks solid, but Durant is injured and won’t be able to play for at least a year. In such a situation, the Brooklyn Nets needs Kenneth Faried, Jonathon Simmons and Thabo Sefolosha in late free agency.
Kenneth Faried has been one of the most unutilized players in the team of Houston Rockets. He had a decent average of 12.9 points and 8.2 rebounds per game he played for the Rockets. Faried is great at scoring from inside and rebounding; the Brooklyn Nets should sign him at the first chance. The best part is that Faried has played previously for the Nets and a reunion might be suitable.

Jonathan Simmons had a fantastic career start with the team of San Antonio Spurs. He is amazing at floor spacing and can fill in the role of Kevin Durant until he is back on the court. Given his athletic body, Simmons could also become a great defender, which the Brooklyn Nets team needs right now.
Jonathon Simmons checked into the game with the Sixers up 22-21. After five minutes of action, the score is 37-23 Brooklyn.

Even though Jordan and Jarret Allen are very good anchors, the Brooklyn Nets needs someone to lock down the point. Thabo Sefolosha is an outstanding wing defender who can take the ball to the side of the court. He is an amazing defender with an average of 2.6 steals per game. Even in terms of shooting, Sefolosha had a 36 percent shooting score from the other side of the court arc.
