The Brooklyn Nets are strongly interested in RJ Hampton. According to reports from Marc Berman, the Nets would have been interested in Hampton if he was still available. The New York Knicks are also reportedly following the guard closely.

Still talking about RJ Hampton, Marc Berman also reported that the guard worked on his shot with former NBA players Penny Hardaway and Mike Miller. With the upcoming return of Kyrie Irving, Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LaVert, the Nets have no dire need to add anyone to the backcourt, but Brooklyn’s interest in Hampton remains alive as they see him as an interesting player for the future.
