One of the most anticipated seasons in Nets franchise history is about to begin, and the storylines surrounding the title-or-bust Brooklyn Nets have made them one of the most intriguing teams in the league.

The Nets came just a few inches away from taking out the eventual NBA champion Milwaukee Bucks in the playoffs just a few months ago, and while GM Sean Marks has reloaded the roster for another deep run, the Nets face uncertainty surrounding the Big 3. Kyrie Irving remains unvaccinated and, at present, faces missing every Nets home game due to local health regulations. Whether Irving eventually receives the vaccination – or the Nets decide to cut ties with their superstar point guard – remains to be seen.

The Nets’ regular season will begin on Tuesday, October 19th, with a rematch against the Bucks. Here is the full Nets roster as of the preseason:
