Brooklyn’s strategy for the future involves betting against Phoenix’s success, and Houston seems to share the same perspective. Reports suggest that the Nets’ management declined Houston’s offer to return most of the picks from the James Harden trade for Mikal Bridges.

Another attempt from the Rockets involved offering the Nets’ picks back in exchange for the ones they hold from the Phoenix Suns, but Brooklyn swiftly turned down the offer. Despite the Nets’ disappointing season, league executives view the Suns’ picks as valuable assets.

CBS Sports ranked Brooklyn’s traded picks, including the top 2029 pick from Phoenix, among the most valuable. Recent developments, such as the Suns’ playoff exit and Durant’s frustration, support betting against Phoenix – a strategy also adopted by the Rockets.
