Nets a 'serious contender' to sign Irving

Nets a 'serious contender' to sign Irving

If the Nets can only get one max salary player, they could bring back Russell, although if Irving is the player Brooklyn lands, how those two players fit together is questionable.

This is where the Phoenix Suns obviously come in and where fans should now not only keep an eye on all rumors surrounding the Nets, and arguably even root for Brooklyn to sign those two max players. If the team lets restricted free agent guard D'Angelo Russell sign elsewhere, it could clear enough room to sign two maximum-level free agents. By trading Crabbe's massive contract, Brooklyn is opening up about $18 million more in cap space it can use to sign free agents.

Brooklyn "has emerged as a serious contender" to ink Irving to a deal this summer, according to a report from ESPN.

Not surprisingly it's unlikely in a top-loaded draft for there to be a realistic chance of the Hawks turning their current picks into one of the coveted top-three picks, not with Zion Williamson, Ja Morant and R.J.

There's no guarantee that Durant or Irving will join either team.

According to Woj, the 2020 first-rounder being sent to Atlanta will be lottery-protected (protected 1-14).

If the Nets lose out on Irving, they could potentially have a solid fallback option in retaining Russell, a similarly offensive-minded point guard who became an all-star last season. The Hawks also own spots No. 35, 41, and 44 in the second round of the 2019 draft.

Nets shooting guard Allen Crabbe is reportedly headed to the Hawks for small forward Taurean Prince.
