The Brooklyn Nets will try to acquire a third star to improve their core. In particular, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst said the Nets will trade some of their young talent to acquire a player in Bradley Beal’s or Jrue Holiday’s caliber.

“I believe they have telegraphed they intend to use some of their young talent to acquire a third star along with Kyrie and Durant,” said Brian Windhorst.

“Now, we can get enter a healthy debate here about whether Caris LeVert is that third star and they make the decision that he is. But my feel reading the tea leaves, paying attention to what Sean Marks has said and also being aware of some conversations they had at the trade deadline, which was sticking the toe in the water on some things, I think they’re going to swing for the fences whenever the season comes. They’re going to have to potentially hire a coach that is going to help them do that.”

It is believed that the two Nets’ biggest trade chips are Jarett Allen and Caris LeVert, while Spencer Dinwiddie could be another player they can trade.
