The Brooklyn Nets roster may change drastically in the next 24 hours. According to Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report, both DeAndre Jordan and Landry Shamet are on the trading block. The Nets are looking for either a higher pick in the draft or something convincing in return for the two.

Multiple teams have already shown interest in acquiring Jordan. As for Shamet, CBS Sports has indicated that the Los Angeles Lakers are willing to pick him up. This may cost them their first round pick in the draft. The question now falls on the Nets GM Sean Marks. Is the sharpshooter worth just a first round pick? He has already shown so much promise this season after breaking out of his shooting slump at the beginning of the season. Shamet averaged 9.8 PPG for Brooklyn last season on 39% shooting from three. Keep in mind, he’s only 24-years-old.

Jordan’s case is more understandable considering his fall on the defensive end. The 33-year-old isn’t as mobile as he used to be. His numbers have also dipped down to 7.5 PPG, almost tying his career-low for points in 2010. With young talent like Nicolas Claxton blooming in Brooklyn and the possibility of Blake Griffin resigning, Jordan may not have a spot on this team.
