The Brooklyn Nets were missing two key pieces on defense during the playoffs in Ben Simmons & Joe Harris.
Head coach Steve Nash believes next season will be a much different look with Simmons & Harris back on the floor to make up for lost size.
(Via CLNS Media):
“I think Ben Simmons & Joe Harris will give us a big lift, and then we’ll see how the rest of the roster rounds out, but we should be excited by that. Getting two of your top four guys back. Two guys with size. One who’s an All Star and one who’s one of the best shooters in the league. That gives us a big boost. And I think it allows other guys to fall back into their natural positions where they don’t have to guard big guys every night, or play too many minutes where they have to do too much against big, tall defenses where it can be very difficult for a bunch of guys giving up size at every position. So, I think those guys will really help. Obviously, the rest of the roster is really key as well. So, we have a summer to work at that.”
