The Brooklyn Nets are going to be a really different team from the one we saw before the season suspension in March.
The team’s General Manager Sean Marks opened up during a Zoom media session about the possibility of more players opting-out from the Orlando bubble.
“That’d be up in the air,” Marks said, per New York Post. “Look, I’d hope these guys decide to go, but I hope they decide what’s best for them and their health and family. So if they decide to go to Orlando, we know we will be taking the best care possible of them.”
Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, DeAndre Jordan, Nicola Claxton and Wilson Chandler have opted out of playing in the NBA resumption plan, while Spencer Dinwiddie is still listed on the Nets’ travel party, despite testing positive for coronavirus a few days ago.
“I have no reason to believe that at this point more people will opt out. But again, this is a very fluid time,” Marks noted.
The Brooklyn Nets are not going to be one of the favorites to win the title or going deep in the Playoffs in Orlando, but they may have enough to qualify for the postseason, being the 7th seed in the East.
