Nets 2013-14 Schedule: Month-by-Month Listings, Predictions and More
In KG, Brooklyn finally has a frontcourt player who can lead the defense and punish the opposition for doubling Brook Lopez, while The Truth promises to stretch the floor and give the team a reliable scorer on the wing.
There was also a splash hire at coach, as Jason Kidd was offered the gig just weeks after retiring from the league as a player.
