It may be early on in the preseason, but it's never too early to shell out some grades on the Brooklyn Nets' depth.
The Nets and general manager Billy King made major changes this offseason in hopes of bolstering a very weak squad from last season. Through three games thus far in the preseason, the moves are paying off.
In the first game, the Nets ousted the Philadelphia 76ers in overtime by a score of 108-105. The Washington Wizards were unable to come back in the fourth quarter of the Nets' second game, leading to a 98-88 Brooklyn victory.
Brooklyn squared off against the Boston Celtics in the first game at the new Barclays Center on Tuesday night, a game which ended in a 97-96 win for the Nets.
The bench have played exceptionally well in each game thus far, and it goes without saying that their play as a unit will determine how far the Nets make it during the 2012-13 season.
