Nic Claxton brings serious potential to Brooklyn’s already loaded roster. The Nets lost a skilled big man in Jarrett Allen during the James Harden trade, but Claxton is looking like he can fill that spot. He’s a seven-foot lefty with great athleticism who can shoot the ball and block shots. The 21-year-old put up career-highs on Monday in San Antonio, scoring 17 points & blocking 3 shots.
