2022-2023 Brooklyn Nets roster after NBA trade deadline

The Brooklyn Nets were looked at as championship contenders when they had Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving on the roster. At one point during this season, the team had won 18 out of 20 games and looked to be effective on both ends of the floor. However, things slowed down for the Nets once Durant went down with his sprained right MCL.

After Durant injured his knee against the Miami Heat on Jan. 8, Brooklyn went 4-7 in the 11 games between Durant’s injury and Irving’s trade request that became public on Feb. 3. After Irving’s trade demand became public, the Nets saw breakout performances from Cam Thomas and Nic Claxton until Irving and Durant were traded.

The team changed a lot after the two superstars were traded as Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith, Mikal Bridges, and Cameron Johnson came to the team and became part of head coach Jacque Vaughn’s rotation. Here is what your Nets roster looks like after the NBA trade deadline:
